  1. What Advanced technology? The only thing they have what we lack today are Nuclear thermal Rockets, but they have been built and tested in the 1960's.
  2. It is supposed to fly for 3 minutes a day and charge itself using a solar cell. I don't think it is supposed to reconnect with the rover.
  3. Nasa is actually considering a small coaxial helicopter as a navigation aid to the Mars 2020 Rover. https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=4457
  4. Unfortunately not
  5. Thats basically what i did. Well i'll keep my Rovers unmanned for now.
  6. I love this mod and i haven't had any other problems with it but its kinda frustrating to lose two Kerbals after a 50 year career with perfect safety record, and not even seeing them blow up
  7. So after Sending two Kerbals on a trip on the Mun's Surface, i return only to find the Rover unmanned, and both show up in the Astronaut Complex as K.I.A. Has this happened to anyone else or could this be unrelated to this mod?
  8. I would recommend to check out the game "Children of a Dead Earth" on Steam, as it not only simulates Space combat but also the Spaceships and their different systems. And it allows you to create spaceships in a manner similar to KSP.
  9. I don't really see the big difference between spending money on the dlc vs on this upgrade?
  10. I think the Credits theme is actually original.
  11. They only got two mirror assemblies, not whole Satellites. One of them will be used on the WFIRST but it doesn't seem like that results in a cost reduction.
  12. This is a great Youtube Channel. I suggest everyone to check out some of his other videos. Very different from all of the other Popular space channels out there.
  13. Well isn't it supposed to work in tandem with some kind of spacecraft? The point that makes the Orion interesting is that it can reenter from beyond low earth orbit so that a spaceship wouldn't need to decelerate into earth orbit for the crew to be picked up. Reentering straight from an interplanetary trajectory reduces mission complexity a lot.
  14. I think that money would be better spent on something like the WFIRST which seems to be comparable to the Hubble.
