  1. What did you do in KSP today?

    I found a gHoSt KeRbAl!
  2. What did you do in KSP today?

    This is Nadja Kerman reporting live from the KSC. The newest satellite launched by our space program, the Minmusplotter, has refused to transmit its science data back home, arguing that it must "first be analyzed in a laboratory setting", the snotty brat. As a result, it was decided to send one of our expert kerbonauts after it in the first mission to Minmus...Valentina Kerman took a new Collector-class rocket and went after those precious megabytes! Our brave kerbonaut not only caught up with the rouge satellite and took the data succesfully, she also gathered some herself, and headed back to Kerbin. Altough reentry was hotter than anticipated, her heat shield was made of some pretty cool stuff, and she splashed down safely near the space center.
  3. Poll: Are you buying the "Making History" DLC?

    I don't have enough Kerbucks. Maybe I can get some if I launch a model rocket from the top of the building?
  4. What did you do in KSP today?

    Mission Control was annoyed at the constant puns that the probe was making, but it got its just desserts upon return to Kerbin.
  5. What did you do in KSP today?

    I built a glider. It actually works perfectly!
  6. What did you do in KSP today?

    I left BetterTimeWarp on by accident before going for lunch. Now it's year 2400 and all of my solar relays have been kicked out of the system.
  7. What is Your Favorite Moon?

    Minmus. Close and with lots of flat land for doing fun stuff!
  8. Have you ever ejected a kerbal from the solar system?

    I once had a MechJeb module ejected upon "landing" on Kerbin, but no Kerbals. (Unless you count my screwing around with HyperEdit)
  9. Your craft nomenclature?

    I love using "ContractBuild" for stuff that has to be tested in an escape trajectory from Kerbin. I build them in a funny way so I can laugh when I switch to them to find out what exactly I was paid to do. I also stick a big antenna on most. The companies pay for my relays!
  10. What did you do in KSP today?

    I landed a small base I'm planning to expand on the Mun. I scanned for resource lodes only to find one 1.5 kms away! So of course I sent a rover to check it out. I wanted to bring it to the base, but I had no Klaw... I shoved it back to the base. My Mark Watneyish exploits are just getting started... I have 4 RTG's in that base to play with. Base, with rover.
  11. What did you do in KSP today?

    I went to Sarnus for the first time! This little thing had about 11k d/V on the pad, so it had no problem reaching Sarnus and it's moons. I visited Slate, Tetko and Eeloo. Unfortunately, I got an unwanted gravity assist from the latter (Who knew having my closest approach at six kilometres would cause that?) I ended up being kicked out of the Sarnus system, with a solar orbit that has a periapsis higher than Plock. Whoops. Heading for Tetko. Periapsis barely skimmed the atmoshpere. View of Sarnus after my Eeloo encounter.
  12. OPM or GPP?

    You can have both. In the GPP thread there is a mod that adds the OPM planets orbiting around Grannus.
  13. What did you do in KSP today?

    I totally krakened the entire install after Hyperediting a ship to a very large orbit around the sun. (I think it was over 1E100 m) Now no rockets can be launched and the space center is glitchy in all saves. I had to delete the install... Great job, Realism Cataclysm! You lasted a whole day!
  14. What did you do in KSP today?

    I named a rover the Renard Miraculeux and sent it to Iota. The name is fitting.
  15. What did you do in KSP today?

    I created an abomination plane that deploys a small science rover with parachutes. It carries it vertically, sticking out of the hull. It's a miracle it is not immediately destroyed by drag and such...
