  1. Nope, 75 km/s is far more tjan Kerbol's liberation.speed. What he ends up orbiting is the galactic core.
  2. Those drawings are rather cool, gotta admit. It could be fun if you tried doing every elements as a simple drawing like that (don't even ask me how you'd do oganesson)
  3. Not only that, but the T30 sucks because he lacks gimbals. So yep, we need something like the SpaceY engine: they aren't stockalike, but they fill most niches, including this one.
  4. Well... I think I must say that's not a very high mass.
  5. It came from a dresser raid in the KSC, of course!
  6. But then what came first... The spare part on the road? Or the part in the VAB? Bwahahahahaha!
  7. Honestly, I'm agreeing, it's kinda sad the idea was ditched. I'm not sure about the doability of the whole thing however.
  8. Could it be? I'm detecting signs of life in this thread! I thought it was so not-hot the cold was... Pol-lar. Pol Pol (From Pol –daughter of Jool, and spirit of autumn-) is the fifth biggest mun of Jool, as well as its farthest major mun. Discovery: Pol was discovered in 1542 by Lescher Kerman, shortly after his discovery of Bop. Lescher Kerman used a then-new 30-centimetres aperture telescope to observe Jool, in search of new muns. His search was prompted by the discovery of many more muns around Sarnus than had previously been known, and the discovery of Eeloo in 1537. Pol remained mostly unknown until the probe Emerald, the second probe to reach Jool, mapped it during its tour of the outer muns. Emerald revealed Pol’s cratered, jagged surface, as well as capturing the first high-quality pictures of this mun. Origins: Pol seems to be a captured asteroid. This theory is supported by the fact that several asteroids from the Drerian Belt have the same spectrographic signature as Pol. This implies that the capture was old, possibly dating back to the destruction of the Belt, but more probably later, with Pol first becoming a Jool “quasi-mun” at the Joolian L4 or L5 points. Geological evidence gleaned from the Emerald survey evidence suggests that Pol has a violent history, having been broken apart (presumably by a catastrophic impact with another, unknown Joolian mun) and then loosely reconstituted by gravitational agglomeration. Estimates based, on the number of impact craters on the Pollian surface, place the event at about 2 billion years ago. This fragmentation and reconstitution is presumed to be responsible for Pol’s uneven surface, irregular core and only partially differentiated structure. Viewed from orbit, Pol is now a spectacular sight, full of cliffs and canyons. Surface features: Pol is almost entirely circled by a large mountain range around its equator, the “Harvest Ridge”. The Ridge is peculiarly preeminent on the trailing hemisphere, as it separates a large lowland from the rest of the body, creating huge, 5-kilometer tall cliffs. It also branches at several locations, creating secondary rifts on the trailing hemisphere, most notably the “Scythe rift”, “Southern Rift”, and “Hyperborean Rift”. They are all believed to be the scars left by the giant impact two billion years ago. As the leading hemisphere’s rifts are less dramatic than the trailing’s, it is believed that the leading hemisphere was the point of impact. Directly under the impactor, the Pollian crust would have been completely pulverized, without breaking into chunks. The leading hemisphere is notable for having four large craters: from west to east: Uthar (the largest), Gevin, Lankel (the smallest) and Ginev. They have varying ages, from 1.5 billion years for Uthar to only 270 million years for Gevin. They are thought to have been created either by small munlets ejected from the inner Joolian System by Laythe and Tylo, or by asteroids and comets trapped by Jool’s deep gravity well. Pol’s density of roughly 3 indicates it is a silicate body, with possibly the remains of an ice mantle and a regolith rubble crust, and a rocky core. Since the impact, however, the distinction isn’t nearly as clear, and previously differentiated areas are now mixed into a substantially homogenous rock and ice rubble. Exploration: Pol was the target of two probes, the first being Emerald in 1787, followed by Jade in 1798, but the latter only performed a fly-by of Pol. Recently, interest in Pol rose because, if the theory of its origins is correct, then it is one of the only large surviving asteroids of the destruction of the Drerian Belt, along with Dres and Bop. Hence, a deeper exploration of Pol would possibly help to shed light on the origins of the materials in the Kerbolar system. In a farther future, Pol has the least irradiated environment of the Joolian system, making it a viable place for a permanent crewed base or even a colony. Bop is already as on-rail as it is in game, expect it it during the week!
  9. Nope. I'm obviously made of adamantite, and countless people have unleashed the Hidden Fun Stuff by abusing of ISRU.
  10. Just wonderin', no urge, but is there any progress? I'm curious...
  11. Me will buy. Why will me buy? Because me enjoy KSP, and me want SQUAD to carry on and make it an even more fully fleshed game. Oh, and remember sometimes DLC =/= evil incarnate. I'm looking at you with honor, Skyrim, your DLCs are awesome! And in case you are sarcasm-blind, -deaf, -anusic, -touch-insensitive and -tasteless, yes the grammar mistakes were put voluntarilt.
  12. I do this even for small planes, when I have trouble making them take off: I simply strap a pair of sepratrons or (SpaceY) ejectatrons, and suddenly it takes off with 1/4 of the runway available.
  13. And where are chestnut cakes and tiramisus?
  14. Congrats to the winners! sob
  15. This challenge is very defivitely impossible, as it is way within the superheated atmosphere of Kerbol... which isn't helped by the fact you are coming at some 60 km/s or something.
