  1. Ok, so it's been a while since I've made a spaceplane. Honestly, since I heard about the new aerodynamics, I've been waiting for 1.0 So here is a sneak peek to what I've been working on.

  4. Let's hope he doesn't start trolling the hype train.. quick more hype coal so he can't catch us!
  5. People will read this thread one day... and wonder if an actual train was driven?
  6. Thought I might post here before the Hype Train DOSes the forum...
  7. ... Or at least that's what I'd write as a headline. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/oct/15/lockheed-breakthrough-nuclear-fusion-energy Lockheed Martin, makers of the billion dollar money pit the F-35, as well as cyber security experts, and wave tidal energy plants manufacturers have developed a nuclear reactor that can fit on the back of a truck. While the US navy have enjoyed their 'portable' nuclear reactors in their boats for years, maybe, just maybe we will see nuclear reactors take to the skies like Russia and the USA did in the 1950s and 60s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nu
  8. The 70,000 ton figure was from the Swinburne University Facebook page. I think the 13,000 ton figure is more realistic... That said, has anyone being able to calculate the mass of these rocks yet?
  9. An Asteroid ( 2014RC ) just past above Geostationary orbit above New Zealand... Luckily the 70,000 tonne asteroid, travelling at 10km per second did not hit anything... http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-09-08/earths-close-shave-with-an-asteroid/5726692
  10. Ok... So It's been a while since I've entered this challenge. I also thought I'd do something more interesting and challenging. Presenting the Ve Gemini. Transport two Kerbals to low Kerbin Orbit in complete pressurised luxury while using less than a standard tank of fuel. Efficiency, luxury, remote control and self destruct capable... oh, ignore that last point. Just don't hit the stage button too much. Anywho. Here's the video of the first Mk1 Test flight. And here is the craft file for those who want it (limited time only). https://www.dropbox.com/s/2swnc2e5e21f77d/V%20Gemini.craft Part
  11. As this is a newbie friendly challenge, there is no scoring as such... Just completing the mission is an achievement. I will add bonus objectives later for those wanting a bit more of a challenge...
