*you have died of dysentery* the final words of the Bunsen-19 deep space probe before it's disintegration by a complete failure of the attitude control system onboard attempting to compensate for a minor misalignment of the high gain antenna and the NASA DSN Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex sending the probe into a extremely fast spin, a result of operator error
You are a satellite operator running Bunsen-19. Your satellite's mission is coming to an end. Keep your satellite running as long as possible, and make the most of the data you can downlink.

in total, the mission lasted 141 days and downlinked 100 erlenmeyers of scientific data, resulting in approximately 0.7092198 erlenmeyers or less of data per day due to the attitude control failure, a pitiful number compared to the Bunsen-18 Deep Space Probe which downlinked 10428 erlenmeyers with a mission lasting 537 days, which amounted to 19.418994 erlenmeyers of data per day.
