  1. Lol nothing yet (someone could make a mission that fails though!) Just an example, the timeline goes up to 2025 which is the retirement date.
  2. Kratos has its own forum now, missions coming soon!
  3. Kratos The Successor to Ariane IV Kratos ahead of her maiden flight Kratos is the newest launch vehicle developed and operated by Arianespace for the European Space Agency (ESA). Kratos will begin operations in 1991, and replace the Ariane IV. The Kratos-S (Standard) variant can carry up to 65t to LEO. For more demanding missions to further out destinations, such as a probe, the variant Kratos-E (Expanded) is available. The Kratos-E features a 3rd stage called "Loki" provided by the UK Space Agency. The system was designed as an expendable heavy-lift space launch vehicle. Standing 72m tall and 5.4m wide, it is comparable to the falcon heavy of today (maybe? I'm not sure lol). The system is powered by methane and oxygen. Now for the stats: First Stage: 10 Van Gogh Engines with a combined thrust of 5533kN and a burn time of 141s. Second Stage: 3 Vacuum optimised Van Gogh engines which are not able to gimbal. 3 Monet Vernier engines for TVC. Third Stage (Loki): 1 Raphael engine without gimbal ability. RCS used for orientation. This new launch vehicle features a more modern look than the previous Ariane rockets. Sleek white with the classic blue ESA colour for accents. This new launch vehicle is soon to hit the market and the launch pad too. And for the first time, you the readers will have a say in its future career... You can book a flight to launch your own mission on Kratos. As long as the mission is possible and plausible, I will launch it for free and make its own post on this forum. This idea allows me to share the magic of good looking rockets and ksp images to people who maybe cannot do it themselves. It also gives me something to launch, I'm tired of ore tanks lol So send me your missions, I can't wait to make them Book here PS: By the way, I go to school so getting the missions out could be a couple of days, or a couple of weeks, just depends how busy i am. PS PS: Timeline of launches is not chronological, could jump from 1995 to 2012
  4. Thanks! I made it with procedural parts/fairings and conformal texts for the details. I'd be delighted to launch a mission for you It is converted to human scale, its 3.75m in game and the same diameter as Ariane 5 in real life, fairing expands just a tiny bit so i can fit 3.75m payloads in there. They're integral like the proton, which I took a lot of inspiration from.

  6. Apollo Space Station Destiny SLS Just like the real thing!
  7. Big matchstick installed by the station with an arm like the soyuz uses for ignition? Don't take my advice though, I know nothing lol
  8. KSRSS Adventures At the moment I've been feeling very unmotivated and every time I go to make a mission for my thread Space Station Liberty , I just procrastinate. This thread is a place for me to post any missions that are going on in my saves to try and gain some motivation again! This won't be weekly posts or anything, I'll just post whenever I feel inspired lol Hopefully this can kickstart Liberty and some other projects I'm thinking of Enjoy!
  9. Looking stunning in orbit! Great configs as usual
  10. Definitely! Tried out the power tower and it's going to be a complex challenge to overcome, but I'll give it my best go. Thanks for your interest in this, your a really big inspiration
  11. I'm baaaaaaack... Sorry for such a long gap between the last post, I've been really busy with school and just haven't felt very motivated. But I'm back! And I hope to release the next mission in a few days
  12. Does the Saturn revamp include the titan texture clean up or should i use the master branch? Thanks
  13. Heyo! How's this project going, would love to see this as it would be perfect for a new thread I'm thinking of starting
  14. Not quite sure, all I could find about the payload was that it was a 'reconnaissance payload' and so I just decided to put a Lacrosse-1 in there.
  15. STS-62-A: Launch From Vandenburg STS-62-A was a planned shuttle mission to deliver a reconnaissance satellite into a polar orbit, this would be a first for the space shuttle. It was expected to use Space Shuttle Discovery and would be the first crewed launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. It was to launch from SLC-6 (The Delta IV pad) and land on Runway 12 in Vandenberg. Here you can see the Shuttle Assembly Building (foreground) and the Mobile Service Tower (background). The mission would have launched on the 15th July 1986 and had a crew of 7. Here you can see Discovery flying over Baja California, aiming to place itself in a 57° orbit. I hope you have enjoyed
