    How it happened that astronaut Eugene "Gene" Cernan had problems during the Gemini 9A mission during his spacewalk, after all, the first American man who made the spacewalk (the first was the Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov :-)), Edward White did not have such problems.

    It is true that the above-mentioned Soviet cosmonaut Leonov almost did not die when his over-inflated space suit could not fit into the airlock of his space capsule Woschod 2, which was very similar to Cernan's subsequent spacewalk in Gemini.

    And as for Gen Cernan himself, not many people know that he was an American, but an American of Slovak origin, his father was a Slovak Štefan Čerňan born in 1903 in the village of Vysoká nad Kysucou in Slovakia who emigrated to the United States, as a Pole nice to hear about this Slavic accent in the American space program ;-)

    I read about it in Polish Wikipedia in a biographical article about him, I decided to read more about it in English-language Wikipedia, because it is the largest Wikipedia and the most substantive, if we can talk about substantiveness in the case of Wikipedia :-)
    But I saw a funny coincidence, in Czech-language Wikipedia there is no entry about Gen Cernan at all and there is Slovakia.

    I don't know either Czech or Slovak, but as a Pole, I can read texts in these languages because they are linguistically very similar to my native Polish :-) It's a bit like Spanish and Portuguese, I don't know any of these.

    But it's funny that there is no entry about Gene Cernan in Czech Wikipedia :-)

    I think both countries are still experiencing divorce after Czechoslovakia :-)


  2. Is Polish Joke i translated it to English fo you :-)


    Humor from under the blackboard, Teacher ask student
    T - Jas(Johnny), if your mother is 34 years older than your sister and you are 5 years younger than your sister and are now 10 years old, how old is your mother?
    S - Madam! Gentleman never ask a woman for her age! :D

    Nice? Yep, it would be, but would it be right?

    Veterans players (especally people who have free DLCs) are the one who got the most playtime at the lowest price, having someone who paid the game 15$ or less not to pay the sequel wouldn't be right for people who paid the game 40$ 6 month before the announcement of the sequel.

    So maybe it should be some discount for all who previously bought KSP?

    Easy? Why?

    Please describe how rewriting the code from scratch can be achieved at zero cost, which is what you are suggesting (by claiming that Private Division should not charge for it)?

    Just joking and certainly buy it if i  had enough money, and my computer run it but some discounts for veteran players would be nice  ;-)

    And multiplayer would be cool, some could be astronauts and some could be mission control ;-) 

  5. They could sell the copyright to make animation movie or cartoon based on KSP, I spend a lot of time in old days playing KSP, and those game thought me more about aerodynamics and aerospace engineering than more of the time I spend in physics classes in High School, here in Poland, but I had great teacher through.

    I think an animated movie based on KSP could greatly increase kids and adults too, interest in science, even trough KSP doing great on this field already. I even had a perfect matching title for such movie "THE WRONG STUFF" :D

    I was going to send you the following craft I made in a hurry, but you got it done so, good job. Take a look at it though, grab some ideas for the future :)



    You plane certainly looks more smother and more elegant than mine :D , could you share you plane craft file with me?

    Also, when you’re surface-attaching parts and trying to get the straight (like you were with the tail fin) use angle snap (the icon at the bottom left, next to symmetry, you can click it to change from a circle to a hexagon. Good for aligning things at the perfect angle

    Angle snap?

    It's been my experience that it's best directly in line with the CoM, or slightly below.

    Having it above the CoM can work, but generally on larger craft with a ton of control authority. 

    I need to have plane with 3 engines, because one contract testing J-404 "Panther" above 13 000 meters with speed about 450 m/s if i remember correctly.


    So i need two J -404 Panther on each side of fuselage and one main that i would use to climb to those 13000 meters.


    But how to do it that is a question? :(

    Two main problems I'm seeing is that your CoT is above your CoM, which will push the nose to the ground, and your rear landing gear is way too far back.  You want it just barely behind the CoM.

    I also would not recommend angling the rear wheels like that.  Straighten the rear gear out and offset them a bit out so they look like they're attached to the wings.  Also disable the steering on the rear gear.


    That's a lot of thrust for that little thing.  Just use the wheezy for takeoff.  Even after you get it in the air, the panthers are going to be a problem.

    so how perfect CoT and CoM equilibrium should look like?

    Designing rockets are so much easier :(

    The weather station is a deployed science part. You have to deploy it on the surface of a planet that has an atmosphere. Along with a control station and power units (deployed science solar panel or deployed science RTG). They have to be deployed by Kerbals. But can be left running to collect stand transmit science back to Kerbin over time.

    OK but where is stored in rocket if i can ask? :)

    Nope, the weather station is a part of the deployed ground science.

    Play the game? (SCNR!)

    To actually answer your question: the Breaking Ground DLC adds a lot more stuff to do on the surface of the planets and moons. Have a look at some of the videos on youtube. I believe that will help you more.

    So i the weather station is only for rovers? 

    I thought we can create some kind of weather satellite. 

  11. I got all expansion for free cause I bought the game in 2012, I think many KSP fan envy me ;) 

    I don't play the game much in the past year many changes, usually for the better like those new views that show both perigee and apogee :) 


    But I wonder how to utilize all these new modules? 


    Can I create Wheather sat?

    no it isn't. :)


    with me it's kinda funny, i myself have autism and a disharmonic intelligence profile. what that means in my case is that i'm very smart but my brain can't process information very quickly at all. i like to compare myself to the latest version of windows 10 running on a pc that still uses floppy disks..

    LOL :D

  13. The insane jointed mission of Kerbini 6 and 7, Val come with Idea about in Orbit crew transfer, and sweep her place with Bob from Kerbini 7, her idea was, of course, a little bit self-serving, because the crew transfer make her spend more time with her flight instructor and "friend" Jebediah Kerman :D
