Extra orbits

"JAXA’s mission to study Venus was initially shaky. Akatsuki failed to enter the planet’s orbit in December 2010, and made a second successful orbital burn to get the spacecraft out of the Sun’s orbit and into Venus’s five years later"

I didn't realise I was remotely controlling a real probe while playing KSP.
