The Atmospheric Probe is a Payload item that is capable of being launched into another planets atmosphere to collect information, where afterwards it will collide with the ocean of chemicals or liquid and be destroyed.

The probe is featured in Mission 18 and requires a Survey Satellite to relay the "information" that it gathers. However, when used in Sandbox,the "information" sent by the Atmospheric Probe to the Survey Satellite does not actually accomplish any task or pre-requisite.

Like with all crew capsules, its thrusters can move it backwards, or rotate the probe.

It uses 5 power.
