  1. Welp, i'll show you the results of test of ESSP(Extra Small Science Probe). On the launch... Some boring work, and we are on the Mun orbit! Powered landing and !!!SCIENCE!!! After doing some work, we are ready to fly away!!! Yep, this probe will give us raw SCIENCE!!! No radio! Yeah! Ascent went VERY AWFUL!!! Small TWR nearly ruined the whole mission! When it finally has been inserted into VERY LOW orbit, there was 1/7 of all fuel... But I made it go to Kerbin. Whoo... HARD REENTRY A result of the whole mission: 26800 kg on the start, 170 kg after landing on Kerbin. Note: science landing pod did not actually land on Kerbin, it drowned!!! I'm embarrased.
  2. Boring Orion recreation. ^^^ this is the launch of Orion to the Duna using atomic engines in space. Kerbal Joint Reinforcement is still not updated to 1.4.3, so everything is wrong. my face when a deconstruction was happening:
  3. - Baikerbonur, mission state: "Zarya" is in orbit. *aham* Zarya was the prototype of Soyuz spaceship. The real look: As you can see, the capsule is similar to Soyuz's. - Soviet spacesuits are so cozy!))) - Bill Kerman. A small descent error. #back_to_kerbin
  4. Ok. How did you make the sphere? Mod plz?
  5. First Soyuz launch constructed with parts from Making History DLC. Crew: -Baikerbonur, WE HAVE A PROBLEM! Baikerbonur: - Umm, what is a problem? Crew: - Escape tower has just jettisoned itself, but it also stole our living module! Baikerbonur: - ... WUT?! Escape tower: - Muhaha, lol
  6. It looks amazing! But... Only 4 nuclear engines? Meh.
  7. I'm afraid of mods incompatibility and new bugs, so I'm still using 1.3 . Anyway, I tried 1.4 , and it was pretty tasty.
  8. Well, today - no Polyots. But, I made an another Soviet replica! *Athem of USSR* It is Zond-7 which should was an answer to American Moon mission(an analogue of Apollo-8. It means it was a Moon orbiter). Before start. The carrier rocket is Proton-M. Notice that side fuel tanks isn't decoupleable boosters - they are a part of first stage: Liftoff, first stage decoupling and bla-bla-bla, so the second stage: To the Mun! Ahh, fantastic! IVA: Bye, Mun! Say hi to brave orbit crew! One minute. Niw I'm working on weapons for Polyots. Oh, yes. Compare with:
  9. The replica of (not so) legendary Soviet science probe "Polyot"! Start(the rocket is of course R7): Boosters gone! The released probe: Compare with this: Well, Polyot was created to DESTROY American satellites but the project's budget was cut and we saw only a science probe. But I'm preparing a millitary Polyots system... Later, I will be able to destroy crafts on servers... Muha-haaaaaa
  10. Listen all! Let's post RAV's as images or GIFs or videos! It's pretty hard to imagine the rocket. Please. Also I have an idea of REUSABLE RAV. And yes I don;t remember that I created a new topic. I guess it because I don't know word "suggestion". *Illuminati confirmed*
  11. Here it is! A competition of RAVs (Rapid Ascent Vehicle)! Design the fastest rocket in the world!!! Here our RULES: 1. Attempt will count ONLY when you reached stable orbit of Kerbin in less than 2 minutes and with mass less than 70 tons. Must to be in video or detailed Imgur album. 2. Every -second is +1 point, e.g. 2m(max) - 1m45s(your result) = 15s = 15 points. 3. Every -ton is +5 points, the same as ^. 4. No mods adding engines or fuel tanks or changing physics. No engines/fuel tanks clipping. MechJeb only for DV. No cheats(console/HyperEdit). 5. Kerbal-piloted RAV is +10 points. Just. !!!No losing consciousness - +30 points(only with setting "kerbals lose consciousness when overloaded"). No overloads - +50 points. Ext. seat is -15p. 6. No debris in orbit is +25 points. 7. Every kerbal-passenger is +10 points. 8. SRB only is +25 points. It is not easy. 9.Every reused stage is +30 points. 10. Space elevator - OVER9000 points. But stock. Leaderboard: 1.Bradley Whistance. Fail because too heavy, but I will make -50 points for it. I'm his subscriber. So, 41 second is 79 points, ext seat is -15, piloted - +10p, no debris - + 25p, sum: 49 points. Good, Bradley.
  12. *Drums* The White Dragon Mission, an analogue of SpaceX's Red Dragon. The same scheme - trunk for transfer and circularizing, "pod" is an DV(Descent Vehicle, not delta-V) with AV(Ascent Vehicle)/SRV(Samples Return Vehicle) inside. Full mass - 11 t, DV mass - 6 t, AV/SRV - 0.7 t. Here, above the Mun: Also the first booster landing without loosing parts(3 "Vectors", 800 units of LF/oxidizer): Dragon-C(Crewed) v.1 after 15 orbits and docking with station(only 3 places ). The first and the last Kerbin propulsive landing: Docked to UKSS(United Kerbal Space Station). Notice that I'm using a heavy fuel tank instead of hollow trunk with cargo: Meet Dragon-C v.2!!! *applauds* 4 seats, hollow trunk used to carry up to 3 tons of cargo, Super Dracos must be used as ORE(Orbital Maneuvering Engines), and super new design!!! Today we have a special mission: station escape pod delivery. So, we placed this 2-ton pod in trunk and carried it to station. We needed to call our pilot, 'cause we didn't install a probe core. Then, it flew pretty far away because decoupler was too strong. After 'catching' I entried pod and realised that I will dock... without RCS. Well, I'm playing KSP around a half of year, so I am an adept pilot. It was my first 'without-RCS' docking . So, the result: Then, back home: Wait for Dragon-C v.3 with more seats and fuel(and fixed fairings)! Also, it was two more goals: the second successful booster landing and using MechJeb only for stats and landing point. Very ! Sorry for my English, 'cause I'm Russian and I'm only 11 years old(but I am studying Engish at school).
  13. Meet new Dragon-C v1.1!!! 4 places, hollow trunk to carry up to 3 tons of unpressurized cargo, and also some place for pressurized cargo! Weight without any cargo - about 8 tons. Today we are carrying a 2-ton Escape Pod Module to our UKSS. Sadly, I didn't install a probe core, so we must call the pilot: Then a long story - first of all, a decoupler was too powerful, so I needed to catch my pod. After catching, I prepared for a peaceful docking. But I saw that RCS isn't working. It was my first docking WITHOUT RCS . It was exciting. And a special goal for me - I used MechJeb only for DeltaV monitoring and maneuver executing. Also it was the second successful first stage landing. The result: Undocking. Deorbit burn. Reentry. Parachute landing. Why not propulsive? Because I decided to leave this engines for Emergency Escape and orbital maneuvers(because now trunk doesn't contain fuel). Why without covering? Because I forgot what chutes don't open in fairings. Wait for next version! Splashdown with henious overtipping. Also we left our pilot onboard of station.
