  1. Hello guys, I have a question. The Mobile Processing Lab, which could be used as module for space stations, can give you an infinite number of science points or it have a maximum number of points? Currently I have a Space Station which I use only with the purpose to make some science points , but I would be sure that this resource could be used always, in every moment that I need. Thanks in advance
  2. Hello, it could be potentially the same issues for me? If you look this photo 1 of my turistic mission was landed definetely too far from the planned landing zone. I would avoid these type of results when I will do my missions from Duna....someone can help me?
  3. Alien21 Space Agency Report! Mission "Looking For Aliens" was successfully launched with a Ballistic trajectory to Duna. Still evaluating however the landing zone. Is recommended a Equatorial Landing or a Polar Landing as currently predicted? Feel free to give me your opinion about the potential target! The window launch for the most optimal flight is still not arrived, I had launched this rover previously than planned window.
  4. Welcome you too! Yes, is really hard for me tell how I discovered this game, but it was a nice discovery!
  5. Hi Wizard, I know that the base is vulnerable, and is the same component which I will always protect, but I mean, if you have potential issues that the fairing could be damage, why not use a bigger base and a better shield? is strange however that if you try to build a capsule similar to Perseverance capsule you could have issues....but never landed on Eve, just only a flyby. Currently I'm doing on my carrer a mission to Dres, 1 planned to Duna and regarding Eve, 1 mission with primary target completed to achieve science data near the planet (flyby), but not excluding to extend the mission to allow the probe to get more data with a more lower flyby, and maybe a stable orbit.
  6. Nice shots! However a question, why not use a thermical shield which can cover the entire surface of the rover capsule? If I look your first photo, is clear that that shield is too small. Anyway, whish you a lot of achievements with this scientific mission!
  7. Now that I think, looking now the previous post, I decide to add another thing which I haven't still tested on my KSP1, but it could be great if will be a default option on KSP2. Why I said "a default option"? Simple. The mankind have cities, a lot of cities, and also a lot of residential area. On KSP1, for landings on Kerbin, is basically simple avoid certain area such mountains. You have A LOT of potential landing zones, or splashdown zones. Try to imagine if a real mission from ISS will land in London, Los Angeles, Roma or any other city. Except if the capsule will land with accurate precision on a specific point, like a urban park such Central Park in NY (maybe it couldn't be a perfect example, never visited NY, just to explain), maybe it could still remain a safe landing. But in case of mistakes, it could be very dangerous for the crew and any other person involved. If it will became possible select the option "allow urban complex" on KSP2, this will increase significately the importance to calculate the trajectory for a safe landing. this comment was added after that i saw this: https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/144012-kerbal-cities-pack/
  8. These emoji are amazing. Really!
  9. This evening the Alien21 Space Agency was able to make for the first time some EVA construction with a satellite around Mun. The mission wasn't so much complex, except a KSP crash while we was closer this satellite. However a previous save of the game session has allowed us to complete the mission!
  10. Alien21 Space Agency here. Mission "Grey World" was launched with success with a balistic orbit with an Atlas V 551 stock replica. It was required however a second maneuver for adjust the balistic trajectory in order to allow our probe to join the Dres SOI. In case at this point, someone will still continue to have question like I had previously, I will explain all details. My question was: Ejection inclination: what is? is the angle which must be added from our planned transfer maneuver if we would leave the equatorial orbit and start the interplanetary flight? Answer: Yes, this could be positive or negative. In case the value is positive, this mean that you must deviate to the north pole of Kerbin while you will do the transfer maneuver. If it's negative, your direction must going to the south pole. Transfer Periapsis and Transfer Apoapsis: Are maybe the data about the Kerbol Orbit when we will fly around the sun? Answer: after the balistic maneuver, will be exactly that data if the transfer maneuver will be done exactly (this it could be harder, but not impossible) Transfer inclination: will be the inclination in comparison to Kerbol Star during the flight? Answer: yes, like the previous question Insertion Inclination: I think that will be the angle of difference with the equatorial line of our destination. Answer: yes, but to be honest, don't take this value so much as relevant. With the planets with a significant inclination around Kerbol star, is really harder get all these data exactly. I will show you at this point the photo of the probe when I will reach Dres! Luckly it could be possible also download from gitlab the Launch Transfer Window of alexmoon!
  11. Hello KSP users. Alien21 Space Agency has evaluated to plan a mission to the most strange planet. Maybe isn't correct call it a planet, but Dres seems in a great position for a launch and we're evaluating to do a direct mission to that undiscovered planet after our first fly by to Eve. Our MCC (maybe it could be better call it https://alexmoon.github.io/ksp/ ), has calculated for us these data which seems helpful for reach the target, but someone can explain us how to use it? If our intial orbit around Kerbin will be at 100 KM with a Balistic profile: Departure Year 3, day 117 at 2:38:24 Arrival Year 4, day 284 at 5:20:24 Time of flight 1 years 167 days 2:42:00 Phase angle 61.20° Ejection angle 120° to prograde Ejection inclination 1.01° Ejection Δv 1,530 m/s Transfer periapsis 13,337 Mm Transfer apoapsis 39,726 Mm Transfer inclination 0.15° Transfer angle 182° Insertion inclination 14.90° Insertion Δv 1,544 m/s Total Δv 3,074 m/s So phase angle is basically the angle where the target will be located in front or behind our departure planet (in this case it will be in front of us) Ejection angle will be basically the angle where we will start our transfer maneuver, and this exact angle will allow us to leave Kerbin SOI and leave the planet to its own orbital prograde or retrograde heading. Ejection inclination: what is? is the angle which must be added from our planned transfer maneuver if we would leave the equatorial orbit and start the interplanetary flight? Ejection Delta V: simple, the speed required for this maneuver. Transfer Periapsis and Transfer Apoapsis: Are maybe the data about the Kerbol Orbit when we will fly around the sun? Transfer inclination: will be the inclination in comparison to Kerbol Star during the flight? Tranfer angle: will be the total angle from our departure position to our destination position looked from Kerbol? Insertion Inclination: I think that will be the angle of difference with the equatorial line of our destination. Insertion Delta V: another speed which must be planned if I would get an orbit (possible something which could be great, but not sure if required for achive this mission, also a fly by will be appreciate) Total Delta V: the speed required for the travel, really, I don't think that someone could have question about this If someone will be able to explain me this, will be appreciate his-her help. In addition, if you would share with me your agency flag if you would see also your flag on my space probe, will be a pleasure do it. Of course, if someone will be able also to tell me how to calculate manually any interplanetary travel, will be a pleasure learn and try personally your precious sources. This game is really amazing if you would learn phisics.
  12. Sue Origin, like I heared inside some video's, is basically something which was made for a very spoiled rich man that doesn't have really any ambition to do some innovation. I know that Space is a business, to be honest the first real commercial launch was made on 12th April 1965 with Intelsat 1 or Early Bird, but now isn't anymore something which force you to use only state-owned rocket. Now, Space launches can be managed entirely from private companies, and this mean basically that, for some "entrepreneurs", the only stuff which really matter for them is make money. SpaceX was litterally something which I will not describe (I would avoid rude languages) for historical companies. Not only ULA, but also Arianespace and Roscosmos had suffered the competition with SpaceX and their more efficient prizes. Some lanches will be always guaranteed by the goverment interest, expecially for military launches, or scientific mission. But is easy to understand that if SpaceX will continue to won the main contracts, it will became more harder for other rocket developers build their rocket and maintain their "place" on market. When "the amazon bald guy" has started the lawsuit with NASA after he has lost the Artemis Contract, has really showed that probably He is the main issues for Nasa scientific programs. And this was confirmed by the fact that now Artemis was blocked. Really hope that his company made for his ridiculous ego will close shortly
  13. I see a lot of nice space stations here.....hello guys just a question, I will upload later my station photo's. Is complicated try to build a space station around another planet? I have already achieved the target to build a station around Mun and Kerbin, but if I would instead build something around Duna or something else? All suggestions will be appreciated!
  14. Mun canyon? Are that valleys located closer to the Poles?
