  1. A surface sample mission isn't really needed for finding atmospheric life, it would add extra complexity and danger to a mission. As Venus is resurfaced by volcanic activity every few millions of years, you would have to drill really deep and in just the right place to search for microfossils.
  2. The next DLC should add a new gamemode similar to career but instead of contracts, you earn money by racing with one or more AI space agencies based at the other launch sites. You could spend money to try to steal their technologies, and both you and the AI agency could even use missiles to destroy space center buildings. The goal would be to be the first to plant a flag on every body in the Kerbol system.

  5. Given that a single Starship has more volume than the ISS, and the landing crew is at most 4 people, couldn't they just live in a preposisitoned starship for a year or more? Heck, why even bother with SLS at all for this? Use it for an outer planets prove. Given its launch cost of 1-2 billion dollars, you could send literally hundreds of people to the moon on Starship in 2024 for the same price as sending 4 via SLS. Also, if they still aren't finished ONE SLS after a decade, how can they be expected to have a launch cadence capable of supporting lunar habitation? SpaceX has started building multiple rockets of similar size, and these will be ready with just a year or two. SLS is built for a one time heavy payload, like maybe a Pluto orbiter or Mars-Earth transfer habitat, not for supporting a space station.
  6. The Lunar X prize originally started in 2007, had dozens of teams, and a deadline of 2014. Now, 6 years later, and 13 years after the competition started, no team has landed on the moon and only a couple are even left. Should google have done something differently, were teams just unlucky, or were there common engineering problems they encountered?
  7. no one knows if it EVER worked to begin with
  8. Did anyone else have the forums return an error for the last few hours? What happened?
