  1. Saw it yesterday. Great movie! I am Groot! I am Groot
  2. Not if I press E!
  3. Here's one. What is a gas in Uranus' atmosphere? Ch4! (Also to the post above, that was a very paw joke.)
  4. I am a simple Kerbal. I see spaceX, I press like. Great mission! Fire
  5. No. I unfortunately don't have a telescope and never see more than one or two stars in the sky at nice but I would be one if I could be one. TUBM has drank a cup of tea today.
  6. 8/10 that's no dwarf planet...
  7. Samwise Aragorn.
  8. Korbnarbiter.
  9. 1. Elon Musk. 2. KSP devs. 3. Scott Manley 4. Thomas Bergesen ( probably didn't spell that right) Fire
  10. EVE and scatterer? I don't know... Edit: I actually read your post. I think they may have updated it, I still don't know. Fire
  11. Good job, mate! Nice design! Fire
  12. I haven't played either of the portal games. TUBM is on mobile posting here.
  13. So two weeks ago, I posted my Orodruin FTF (First Try to Fly (I made that up)) and I failed a bit. But today, I'm going to call it a 75% success. I tried a few more times in the last two weeks to get both spacecraft to their destination using FMRS, though unfortunately, using LH2 and LO2 in a vacuum slows my game down to the speed of a snail. So I was forced to switch to a Kerosene engine which wasn't as good DV wise as I was trying to keep my mass down so as not to lose too much DV in my 1st stage but had a good TWR and was much easier on my computer than LH2/LO2 was. There were a few problems with this flight, the RCS didn't work and the 2nd stage was JUST not enough to carry the 2.8kg communications satellite into LEO. BUT... Spoiler alert, this happened. So first of all, I had 3 antennae on the satellite and the third one which was a medium sized antenna right on the top of the craft somehow manage to collide with the fairing. It blew up but luckily the fairing was ok and I still had the other two small radially mounted ones. So the second stage ended up cutting out at 7100 m/s which was 500 m/s from orbit velocity! The small .1 TWR satellite managed to reach orbit but the orbit was very ugly. Anyway it took me three tries to land the first stage. The first I accidently stopped the engine close to the ground with one ignition left. Stock habits. The 2nd one, I miscalculated the suicide burn and I bounced off the surface and came crashing down horizontally. The third was perfectly timed and landed nice and wobbly. Not as good as Elon Musk's team but it was good, until this happened... And we slide down an almost perfectly level piece of ground. What?! And it kept going! I went to get a snack and came back, and it was still going. So finally I jumped back to main mission and got a pretty ugly orbit, but what I am most happy about is this. Keep in mind that I did this without RCS since that wasn't working. Get on my level ground, Elon musk! But that's all for now. Fire
  14. Yes! You guessed right! I am @The Raging Sandwich! Wait what? @Firemetal!
