  1. So about that solar boiler... How heavy are we talking, and how much power output?
  2. My recent launchers are extremely simple, they can take a ~40 ton payload to solar orbit. Its two of the large three meter tanks on the lower thrust three meter engine, and that stack copied onto the sides with six way symmetry, with a stack of five large sas modules on each of those stacks, topped with a large battery and eight rtgs.
  3. Because ksp runs slowly, any mission can take hours. Large launches can take 20mins+ just to get to orbit. Getting to 10km tends to take ten minutes. My current mission is nearly at Jool , and its taken about two and a half hours so far.
  4. Hi Kerbonauts! Sunjumper (or Squid, whichever you prefer; just don't call me Milky) here! On the Kerbal Space Program subreddit, there are numerous challenges. Some of them are easy, some of them are hard, but most of them can be taken one or more steps beyond. A challenge to land on Minmus? A challenge to land on the Mun AND Minmus? Let's do all three in one go, and land on the Mun on the way back home, because we can! A challenge to rendezvous in Kerbin orbit? Let's do that in Solar orbit. Actually, lets do that in a solar escape trajectory. Actually, lets dock, and bring the probe b

  6. The opening of Arsole: Arsole, also called arsenole[1] or arsacyclopentadiene, is an organoarsenic compound with the formula C4H4AsH. It is classified as a metallole and is isoelectronic to and related to pyrrole except that an arsenic atom is substituted for the nitrogen atom. Whereas the pyrrole molecule is planar, the arsole molecule is not, and the hydrogen atom bonded to arsenic extends out of the molecular plane. Arsole is only moderately aromatic, with about 40% the aromaticity of pyrrole.[2] Arsole itself has not been reported in pure form, but several substituted analogs called ars
  7. When your rover test destroys Kerbin When your rocket is so big you have to put it over the whole KSC. When your TWR is 100... on a neutron star. When you launch it and it blows out Mission Control... and the rest of KSC... and the rest of Kerbin... When your Gilly Lander has enough fuel to land on the Sun. And then do a full Grand Tour... five times. Scratch that, when your Gilly Lander is so large, Gilly itself lands on it. ...your spacecraft has its own galaxy. When you basically turned Kerbin into your rocket. When your upper stage creates a big bang. When you edit the amount of f
  8. When Whackjob says your rocket is big. When you use Gilly as your return vehicle. When your second stage engine is so big that you have to name it "Explosion" When your first stage engine is called "Ragnarök" When your Launch Stability Strut Manufacturers are thinking of making space elevators out of them. When your upper stage engine emits more power than the Space Shuttle at liftoff When your launch configuration's power output is a serious rival to the Saturn V When your launch configuration's power output surpasses the Saturn V When your first stage engine weighs more than a mun rocket
  9. * Larger xenon tanks * Larger Ion Engine(s) * A 2.5m Hubmax part * Stack Mounted external seats * Stack mounted monopropellant engines * A half-size variant of the goo module and materials bay for the later parts of the tech tree * Radial Attached Control sources * Altering the ElectricCharge numbers so that 1 ElectricCharge is 10MJ (based on the ion engine, it is 9.441MJ)
  10. Flyby body X and collect science from an altitude below Y Retrieve a rover from the surface of X and bring it to KSC Launch a payload of X into the sun/out of the solar system Attach solar panels to space station X Send X number of kerbals to body Y
  11. I try to go for more realistic staging, the most asparaguslike my rockets get are two boosters feeding into the middle booster. For a mission I'm planning, I am considering asparagussed ion stages though.
  12. New Notation: Op(x) Utilization: a Op(x) b Where Op(x) refers to a mathematical operator (ie addition, multiplication, etc) So: Op(1) -> addition Op(2) -> multiplication Op(3) -> exponents Op(4) -> tetration Etc. So, I give you: Googoplex Op(42) Googolplex Or, Googolplex Op(43) 2.
