    The Summer Break Thread

    Actually, this is true. As I recall, snow came earlier in the season, and it seemed to fall 'deeper'. Then again, I was a kid, and my legs were shorter... so yea, there was 'more' snow. As for uphill both ways... this is literally true too. Where I lived, on top of a ridge, I had to walk a little over a mile to school; That meant down the hill, up a hill, and down a hill into the center of town. The walk back home was up down up. So, yea, I can say that!

    The Summer Break Thread

    I have to say, part of that problem you're having is because these days the schools will close for the least amount of inclement weather... 3 inches of snow on the ground, or even 6, was never grounds for a school closing back in the 60's & 70's. I remember that on such snowy days, extra time would be allowed for kids and teachers to get to school... which pretty much meant the skipping of 'Homeroom' and going straight to 1st class.

    Thread to complain bout stuff

    And you should have pointed out to her that she's one of those useless, contributes nothing to mankind, Rent Seekers. And likely not knowing what the hell that meant, it probably would have shut her right up for a while until she looked it up.

    Unity Analytics and the GDPR

    IF and WHEN this ever gets sorted out and fixed (notice I'm not holding my breath), @SayNoToRedShell can go here and change it...

    Theories on Mystery Goo?

    I'm to understand that in KSP v2.0 they'll begin human clinical trials.

    What funny/interesting thing happened in your life today?

    This, made my day. Thank you. I am sharing this with the educators in my family. Umm..... are you trying to tell us something, without telling us something?!?

    Colonization Discussion Thread (split from SpaceX)

    In the news today: Apparently retired Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield feels that neither Space-X nor NASA nor Blue Origin spacecraft will ever make it to Mars, as things stand today. Why? 'Because the safety risks are too great.' I think he might be right; So far, all we've seen is a publicity stunt... save probes and rovers. Note: The video(s) with both of these articles is either blocked or removed or suppressed or ... you get (don't get) the picture.

    KSP Caveman Celestial Navigation

    That would be neat, although I'm not sure the game's physics and parts behavior would permit it. I'm not a rocket scientist though, nor Unity expert, so maybe someone here better qualified would know the answer to that. That's a spiffy write-up. But, wait a minute..... Cheat Menu?!?!?? How did KSP caveman gain access to this?!?!?? Did he have a little help, maybe?
  11. If we gave distances in Kellicams, would you have balked at that as well? For future reference: 1 mile = 1.60934 kilometers In the OP's case, he's talking about an 185074.56km orbit, in-between Mun and Minmus. I have three huge ships which I've assembled in a similar orbit, two of which are now on their way to Jool, and the third on its way to Eeloo. All three being Ion powered, using such an orbit as a start point made a lot of sense to me, and it worked out quite well.
