    Curious George
  1. Wow, I had not heard this word, online search, found that it was used in The Canterbury Tales. Most of the online dictionaries came up with nothing, but, free dictionary.com had bismotered which, I believe is the evolved form. Means spotted with dirt or mud.
  2. If you want to stick to stock parts, how about a series of rovers with a bunch of the brightest lights available and lots of batteries and solar panels, parking and aiming wherever you need them.
  3. I don't think any Kerbal has read either of those publications. The Kerbin Bureau of Weights and Measures publication may have different standards, but I'm not sure where to find that.
  4. Not sure. I think of it as Gill-ee, but never saw a pronunciation guide for it anywhere.
  5. I forgot to comment: km/hr (mph) would work for those uses.
  6. I agree, it’s ‘rocket science’, it should be in metric. Most of the world uses it, including scientists and medical professionals in the U.S. Pretty much only the U.S. and possessions use imperial units.
  7. Eureka!! I just did it just a bit ago. I guess they invented the grabber since the last post here. Jeb ran out of electricity and couldn't stage or retro. Periapsis was 199, too high. So, Bob, Bill, and Tedfrey mounted a rescue mission with the grabber. Approaching Jeb, Bob attemped EVA to transfer a solar panel from Rescue to Jeb's ship, doesn't work. So, they grabbed Jeb's pod with the grabber. It won't grab the science jr, but will grab the command module. Once 'docked', at Apo, retroburned to a Peri of about 40 km. Meanwhile, since the ships are connected, Rescue charged Jeb's batteries, even through the grabber. Stayed connected until almost to re-entry. Once disconnected, Jeb had full batteries. Successful landing. During reentry, couldn't switch to the Rescue pod, game won't let you. Thought I was gonna lose the crew, but, at 23 km, it skipped back out and it gave me time to recover Jeb and over 500 points. Then, next orbit, aerobraking allowed landing and recovery. A successful mission all around.
