  1. You're scared of ponies? Tell me more about how manly you are.
  2. Robert Zubrin seems to think "We absolutely do need heavy-lift", and the whole Mars Direct scheme requires huge rockets with little to no loitering in orbit. Maybe a whole mess of smaller rockets would torment NASA's funding more than launching a few heavies and being done with it. Nobody really foresaw the shuttle program being as disappointing as it turned out. I don't claim to be an expert, but Apollo was done by one solid and true heavy-lift rocket, and that's the greatest accomplishment in spaceflight.
  3. If they do I hope they add a SABRE-esque engine to compensate, there's probably a mod for that already. In the meantime, we can enjoy oddities like this monster. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMOzbtZAfWM
  4. Yeah, It seems that spit back there was as exciting as it's going to get. Now that I'm here though, I'll just say that the brony fandom has me endlessly perplexed, in no small part because of the hostility towards them too. We need more KSP fans in the world, surely we can all agree on that at least.
  5. Probably because it is a space shuttle. Space shuttles tend to remind people of space shuttles.
  6. Re-entry can't damage anything except solar panels at this stage in development, and the you can't pre-seat your kerbals so you have to stick a command pod on a decoupler, fill that with crew, EVA them and place them into the seats and then you decouple and fly away. It'll look sillier than a clown car, so I'd just make a new Spaceplane from scratch. You can put a small box in front of intake which gives you an attachment point for another intake and so, with no loss of intake. You can spam this as much as you like to get ridiculously efficient jet engines. It's to spaceplanes as asparagus staging is to rockets, don't leave home without it. I'm currently working on making a fleet of "Super Shuttles" that are supposed to be able to haul space station modules and reach munar orbit in one stage, You can do crazy things with spaceplanes if you try hard enough and cram in enough intakes.
  7. Someone mentioned something innocuous about My Little Pony on a non-brony website?

  9. So it has less lifting capacity than the Ares? That's depressing. Though as long as NASA gets their hands on something better than the old Saturn V, i'll be happy.
  10. I'm going to build this with the greenhouse and ioncross mods, wish me luck!
  11. What I've yet to understand is why it will accept some things as sub assemblies and others it will dismiss with a "THIS PART IS NOT ATTACHABLE" message. It seems to be allergic to docking ports, but I'm not sure.
  12. Any thoughts about what it should be named and what it should be like?
  13. The Kernadian Space Agency. Our ultimate goal is to build the galaxy's largest hockey rink on minmus.
  14. There's alot of mods that need to graduate to stock. Especially In-suiti resource utilization, my whole space program relies on Kethane.
