1. ## Kerbae ad Astra Wiki

I like it, except for the references to "jumps." The Kerbol Federation doesn't possess spacefolder technology, but only polyspatial. Polyspatial is largely continuous, except for the translation events at each end. Check the superluminal propulsion page for more details. Drop by the IRC channel* pretty much anytime it's daylight in the US; we'll get you up to speed. Just give us a wave (o/). *Network: freenode.net; channel: #kerbaeadastra
2. ## Kerbae ad Astra Wiki

This universe has escaped the bounds originally imagined for it, and it would be silly to continue calling it "the Kerbal Future universe." Thus, I present to you... Kerbae ad Astra Kerbalkind to the Stars Centuries after Jeb's flea hopper, the kerbal species ventures outwards, leaving the sanctuary of Kerbol far behind. Little did they know the glories and horrors which awaited them... The information here was grossly out of date and the formatting left much to be desired. In light of this, we have created the Kerbae ad Astra Wiki. Questions and feedback are welcome.

4. ## Pledge Alligence to the National Space Agency

It's a portmanteau of "petajoule" and "petrol." Petrajoule!
5. ## Useful metric for high-relativistic velocities

I am trying to develop a good metric for velocities extremely close to c. However, to achieve this, I first need to understand what makes a "good metric." It is quite clear that the simple decimal representation (xc) is deficient, as it makes values such as .999c seem very similar to .99999c while making values such as .001c seem very far from .25c (though divergence from Newtonian kinetic energy is vanishingly small). I've started using a metric which is based on counting the nines after the decimal point (e.g. .999c => "3 nines" and .99999c => "5 nines"). This helps with the issue of distinguishing values very close to c, but it doesn't make much sense in general (How do you define .05c? Or .9993c?).
6. ## Could we send a Nokia 3310 to space?

You really want that thing contributing to Kessler syndrome?
7. ## Useful metric for high-relativistic velocities

Thank you; that's exactly what I was looking for.
8. ## Useful metric for high-relativistic velocities

We could negate it, and be left with log10(c/c-v) which would return positive values.
9. ## Kerbae ad Astra Wiki

The black hole reactor is on the Technology page, under Generators (non-nuclear). Yes, KaA is single-galaxy in scope. Depending on your era, it could be rather a bit smaller.
10. ## Kerbae ad Astra Wiki

Ah, yes. We just migrated. I've updated the link. Absolutely! Do you already have one in mind?

µ What is the aardvark's favorite note?

14. ## [1.3.0] Kerbal Foundries -- Continued - Tracks, Wheels, and Gear (08-27-17)

I've noticed the exact opposite, oddly enough. The wheels seem perfectly content to keep their own counsel as to which way is forward. You can see this by using a vehicle with directly contradictory "control from" points.
15. ## The Saga of Emiko Station - Chapter 86 - Emiko's Backstory - Going Under

Hurricane spores.
16. ## StarMods: RLA Recontinued 14.1.0!

Must agree with you there, this is pretty barren even for a Modding Monday Star Mods. Even an expansion of the acronym would be welcome.
17. ## The Saga of Emiko Station - Chapter 86 - Emiko's Backstory - Going Under

Praise the sun filament!
18. ## KSP Making History

It's not a result of the "bought in early" thing. It's a result of the way the EULA was written. At that time, the EULA contained a clause which gave the customer the right to every piece of content released. This included updates, official mods, and, yes, even DLC. SQUAD amended the EULA in early 2013, removing this clause. If they didn't respect their own EULA, then it would presumably become nonbinding. And that might cost more than the DLCs would.
19. ## KSP Weekly: Trekking the Stars

Are Set Orbit (and other cheat utilities) and kraken drives canonical? If so, I think kerbalkind is closer to universe-hacking than warp drives.
20. ## ALIEN SKIES: A 6.4-scale playthrough of GPP/Rald

That sentence fragment tells me that the report ended abruptly. Perhaps with a spontaneous explosion?
21. ## [1.3.0] Kerbal Foundries -- Continued - Tracks, Wheels, and Gear (08-27-17)

If you go back a few versions on GitHub, you can probably find the version immediately before the 1.3 compatibility patch. However, you will be using an unsupported version. It might be better for you to simply update KSP, as most mods have probably caught up by now.
22. ## Revelations of the Kraken (Chapter 9: Pride)

Dual monitors are an amazing thing.
23. ## Revelations of the Kraken (Chapter 9: Pride)

I'm afraid that's the fastest way to get me to read something.
