  1. Interesting. I'll toss another one together from scratch to be sure. It will be 15 minutes well spent. EDIT: Actually, I'll circle back on this one. I'm busy breaking the back of the Spanish Empire in the Caribbean of the late 1600's. Vive la France!
  2. Did the performance of the J-2 engines get changed recently? I just tried a launch of the Saturn V configuration I've used for months, and the second stage took off like a bat out of hell.
  3. How dare you do something so human as make a mistake? I'm terribly disappointed.
  4. Gravitating back to the pirate games I love so much. We'll see where things go from here...

  5. Not yet. I'm letting her get her space legs. Edited to add: The spacecraft can survive reentry just fine. But it's too fragile for a touchdown of even 5 m/s. Therefore, the first test was not entirely successful.
  6. My first attempt at a recoverable Laika flight.
  7. YAY! No more wondering anymore which Gemini 3 is actually Gemini 14.
  8. Far out, man! A booster for hippies!
  9. She's a real beauty!
  10. Is that second picture a close-up of Joseph Merrick (a.k.a.the "Elephant Man") as a Kerbal?
  11. Salyut-Skylab
  12. Mercury Mash-Up Monday.
  13. Fat lot of good that will do you. It's in that version too. And the one before that, and before that, and so on. The funny bit is how uptight people get about it. Bloody hilarious.
  14. Just the loading screen. It will go away in a day or two. It's a known thing. Consider it a test as to whether or not you have a sense of humour.
  15. Thank you for the Z-markers! I can usually get the alignments right, but there are enough times I've botched it that this will be an incredibly useful guide.
  16. @sal_vager, thanks for all the good things you did here. You will be sorely missed. I wish you safe and joyous travels!
  17. That reminds me of my last flight on Delta Airlines.
  18. Actually, it was a ventral-facing scanner that was flown on the Gemini missions. Here's the source material. Gemini Guide - Horizon Sensor System
