  1. Amazing work as always Though it seems like the antiproton storage ring ought to at least be protected by some kind of foil on the truss structure.
  2. I'm pretty sure he said that it was intended for retrieving satellites from orbit. Considering that it was an airforce project, it could be used against enemy spy satellites, bringing them back so they can be analyzed. Or it could simply be bringing the satellite down so as to take it out of commission in a way that creates no debris.
  3. I find it odd that the loading screen splash text "adding K to every word" planted this idea in everyone's head, but in-game hardly anything has a K added to it. I feel like the proper way to "Kerbalize" a name is just to make it silly.
  4. I think they refer to it as an ion drive in promotional material for the film because, to the layman, the technologies aren't super different. Plus a lot of people have probably already heard about ion engines from fiction and from the Dawn probe.
  5. Those windows on the centrifuge module were the only things that looked out of place on the Hermes. Some people still seem to think that a crew needs big windows in the living area of their spacecraft. Honestly I think that the constantly spinning view of nothing but the void for months on end would actually cause more harm to the crew than good.
  6. If it's possible, I think that the nuclear reactor and ion drive/plasma thruster would benefit from using Near Future pluggins Also, unrelated to the mod, I'm puzzled by the habitat ring. How were they supposed to have launched those modules? I suppose they could have been broken down into pieces, but that would require a level of in-orbit construction that we haven't done before.
  7. I haven't been playing Kerbal nearly as much as I thought I would, but I'm still making slow progress on getting everything ready for this mission One thing that's been delaying me is that I had originally intended to use A.S.E.T.'s Exploration Rover for this series, but Roverdude's Karibou Expedition Rover has a more stock-alike look that might go well with other mission components. It also has the added benefit of integrated landing thrusters. I was wondering if anyone had any feedback on which rover they'd rather see.
  8. It seems like this mod isn't getting the attention it deserves. It looks great
  9. If the Kerbin Octopus is any indication, life on Kerbin resembles many life forms on earth, just with big googly eyes and oversized heads.
  10. It would be especially interesting if you could create a custom space center styled after an underground launch silo, sheltered from the heat and radiation
  11. I've also heard that it could be used as a heat shield if you plan on landing the whole craft as a one-way colony shot to mars
  12. Only if the rock has enough mass to have a substantial gravitational field itself. Even then it would be negligible, only slightly faster than the feather. There should be videos of actual vacuum chamber tests that show that objects fall at the same speed.
  13. Oh wow, these came out great Thank you! I haven't been able to do one bit of maintenance on that pack.
