    Pilot deufrai : introduction

    Welcome to the forum, @deufrai. Any kerbal, Jeb included, becomes level 1 on first orbit - regardless if they have been resurrected. Experience makes all classes better at their jobs. There is a rundown on the wiki that explains the requirements and abilities: https://wiki.kerbalspaceprogram.com/wiki/Experience

    If you were the first person on mars, what would you say?

    "I need to update the maps on my Navman".

    For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    There is no such thing as a stupid question. Stupid people don't ask questions.

    Please don't, Mate. I love getting increasingly stronger doses of Bennu on a daily basis. I would also like to know a little about what inspired you to become involved in space exploration and what it feels like to see OSIRIS REx really starting to perform it's mission.

    Welcome to the forum, Mate. Congratulations on the career choice. If you can get someone to pay you to do something you love you have won half the game of life.

    Aloha fellow Kerbalnauts

    Welcome to the forum, @0hr-9am, and G'day from Australia. With regards to the temp survey, no, it does not need to be manned. I'm not sure if you are using navigation - In the map view left click on one of the survey markers and select 'activate navigation'. A new marker should appear on your navball - head towards it and you should get a flashing notification when you are in the test area.

    Fibre for space elevator

    If I understand both ideas correctly, these structures would be unable to maneuver to avoid orbital debris and would also need to be engineered to withstand high speed collisions.
  11. How many did you catch? This should become an Olympic sport.

    ISS Discussion Thread

    I was quite pleased for the ISS when I found out NASA pays to deliver Sriracha sauce . I'd almost be willing to pay the same amount if my supply was threatened. https://www.thedailymeal.com/eat/there-s-bottle-sriracha-onboard-international-space-station

    How ask a doctor for sick leave?

    There are food standards laws in Australia that prevent this situation. An employer cannot penalize you for following these standards by law. You should look into the safe service of foods laws in Poland, Mate, as it should guide you in the right direction. I also hope you feel better - I enjoy black tea with lemon and honey when I become one of the infected.
  14. NASA announced on Oct. 30, 2018, that Kepler has run out of propellant and is being retired within its current and safe orbit.
