    about the launchpads and runways...

    A runway twice as long, and twice as wide would make more sense if its intent is for spaceplanes. A nice SpaceX style landing pad would be cool too. The launch pad is mostly fine, but we definitely need some better launch clamp options.

    Better Tech Tree

    Certainly, the tech tree needs to be straightened out. Simple structural components like adapters and girders are somehow harder to build and research than a goddamn turbojet, and let's not forget thermometers and barometers being more high tech than a MK1 capsule.
  3. Excellent, I'm glad it was something far more benign than what my cynical mind was leading me to conclude.
  4. So, is there a reason the forum links for each mod, in the CKAN metadata pane, were removed?

    More Nuclear Engines?

    Honestly, what is needed is a big honkin 3.75m nuke. Because as it currently stands, a truckload of Rhinos are the only way to move anything huge around the Kerbol system, without taking decades for each burn.

    Stealthy orbital insertion?

    It seems largely doable, especially coming in on a trajectory over the south pole, into one of the southern oceans. Be prepared to Thor Heyrdahl your way to land, though

    Nuclear Termal Turbo Rocket

    That's a marketing problem

    Mars in three years

    It's not called the Senate Launch System for no reason

    But I'm trying to do things correctly, and bleed speed off above 50km with a high AoA . Your plan would keep me stable, but stuff me face first into the soup at over 2km/s

    Likely all that nice fresh paint being burnt off Never had luck on winged reentry without RCS to maintain attitude

    There is no response to to a statement such as this that wouldn't get me banned

    SpaceX Discussion Thread

    That's my point. Von Braun gave us something, something he believed we would value and build upon. And what have we done with it?

    SpaceX Discussion Thread

    If that sentiment is the culmination of US rocket development, Werhner Von Braun should have just burnt his drawings and documentation

    All those points are true, but Lockheed and Boeing, both separately and together, have shown little innovation or improvement on their rocket designs over the recent decades.
