  1. Solved the issue. OPM Tilt seems to be the issue, since it's incredibly old.
  2. I am using the backport for 1.5.1, and I get this message in logs (here is just a small example): [EXC 22:30:47.029] NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Kopernicus.Components.KopernicusStar.LateUpdate () Here is my modlist: As it may be expected from running the 1.5.1 version of Kopernicus, I am running version 1.5.1. Are there any possible incompatibilities?
  3. In the spirit of reusability, I launched a Dres orbiter with a Falcon 9, landed it, and landed the same booster on Dres. Here is the Dres Express mission. And the F9-Dres mission.
  4. Managed to capture the first Polo doing flyby in the nick of time.
  5. https://imgur.com/a/qd5qm6m For some reason they are really reflective. In vacuum of space, means that they are almost invisible.
  6. Finished Rank 3. This was a fun challenge. Took 2 launch campaigns and everything went nominally. https://imgur.com/a/dcoUVqv https://imgur.com/a/Jud4kTz +10 points for InSight landing +20 points for smallsat relays +30 points for DRO satellite Falcon 9 launch vehicle used. Stage 1 recovered and reused for second launch in expendable configuration. Will have to make sure of Ike fly-by; trajectory of the Polo smallsats suggested an Ike fly-by, but I will have to verify. I also unfortunately used the draft badge for the fairing. Please ignore this mistake.
  7. Attempting Rank 3. DRO is in nominal scientific orbit. Will submit when all is done.
  8. Note to Ultimate Steve: Due to a misunderstanding, I put the GravSats in an elliptical orbit. I guess that works. Fluon Flight 2 Launch Report Date: Y2/05/01 Payload: GravSat 1-3, TurkeySat The first operational launch of the Fluon launcher appears to have gone nominally. Launch of the Fluon Flight 2. (Kerbin Lab) The rocket launched from the Woomerang Launch Facility (LC-1) in the afternoon of May 1. Fluon is a small two-stage launch vehicle that has been built in-house by Kerbin Lab. This launch was also the first time it had a secondary satellite on board. A rendering of the payload configuration on this launch. (Kerbin Lab) The second ever ascent of the Fluon. (Kerbin Lab) The vehicle headed on a 68.8 degree inclination to enter a low parking orbit of 77 x 75 km. Fluon's first stage, powered by the Goddard engine, lifted the launcher up to an altitude of 77 km before burning again. Fairing separation on Fluon Flight 2. (Kerbin Lab) The engine burned out all of the first stage's fuel before the two stages separated, and the second stage's Korolev engine ignited. The second stage burning shortly after stage separation. (Kerbin Lab) The vehicle successfully entered its parking orbit, to prepare for a second burn of the Korolev engine over the Southern Ocean. The burn took place approximately 13 minutes after liftoff, using all of the remaining fuel in the second stage, and raising the orbit's apokee to 305 km. The second stage after relighting its engine. (Kerbin Lab) The primary payload consist of the first three GravSats, made by a major local university. The satellites are meant to be a low-cost way to measure Kerbin's gravitational fields. The secondary payload is TurkeySat, built by a major turkey chain. The satellite contains its famous turkey nuggets inside. This was the sat to be deployed first, approximately 14 minutes and 45 seconds after liftoff. The deployment of TurkeySat. (Kerbin Lab) The GravSats were deployed at different points along the elliptical orbit, with the last one deployed approximately 41 minutes and 30 seconds after liftoff. The deployment of GravSat-3. (Kerbin Lab) The launch was an incredible success, and the satellites' signals have been picked up on the ground.
  9. Fluon Flight 1 Launch Report Date: Y1/09/17 Payload: TESTsat 1 & 2 Surprisingly, the first flight of the Fluon went on nominally. The rocket launched from the Woomerang Launch Facility (LC-1) in the early morning of September 17. The vehicle ascended using its Goddard engine, developed in-house by Kerbin Lab. The first stage provided enough lift to carry Fluon to its apogee, before separating and allowing for a small coast period. The second stage circularized the two boilerplate QBE-Sats into a 120x120km orbit, with ~45 degrees inclination. We have recieved telemetry from the satellites, indicating that they are working nominally. The Fluon launch vehicle is now operational.
  10. Thanks. Modded payloads are allowed, obviously. All you need to do is say which mods are used in the payload, and I will work it out.
  11. MANIFEST Launch # Launch Vehicle Payload Orbit Date Outcome 1 Fluon TESTsat 1 & 2 LKO Q3 Y1 Success 2 Fluon GravSat 1-3, TurkeySat PKO Q2 Y2 Success 3 Fluon-Kurie PorcupineSat EKO Q1 Y3 Planned 4 Fluon-Kurie SAC-1 SSO Q2 Y3 Planned 5 Fluon GravSat 4-5 PKO Y3 Planned Kerbin Lab was founded 8 years ago by Beck Kerman with the simple goal of making space more accessible. He nearly immediately began development of the Fluon launch vehicle. The Fluon launch vehicle is now nearing completion. Fluon is a brand new smallsat launcher. Able to lift 400kg into orbit, Fluon will be useful to wield many light payloads, such as QBE-Sats or similar technologies, on one launch, reducing costs significantly. 1.25 meters wide and 15.5m tall, it's not meant to be large, however, it still can deliver for many purposes. It is currently in the late development stages, and we expect to launch within the next 3 months. We just did a full duration burn of the first stage on the pad, testing out critical ground equipment and flight hardware. Testing first stage core at the Woomerang launch facility. (Kerbin Lab) The static fire proceeded nominally, although there were some issues delaying the test from its initial start time. We are currently targeting our first launch in about 3 months, with the payload being 2 QBE-Sats. YOU CAN HAVE YOUR PAYLOAD ON A FLUON! HERE'S HOW: Payload: [payload name] Mass: [payload mass; must not exceed 400kg] Target Orbit: [orbit parameters] Rideshare: [Yes/No] Payload Link: [insert link of payload (preferably on KerbalX) here] Extra Notes: [could be anything]
  12. PΛLΞR BLUΞ DΘT JULY 20 2036 Jonathan Bell was sitting in his retirement house in sunny Galveston, Texas as he was watching Luna News Channel. A segment was on about some boring thing (vice president was reported to constantly drink Diet Dr. ... Kelp? no) and all of a sudden– whoooooooooooosh-BING! The anchor would say: "This is a breaking news alert, we have some news from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Scientists have used machine learning coupled with the Copernicus telescope to find the greatest galaxial discovery of the century." Jonathan: Quinn! Quinn's on that team! The retired father would call his son to ask him about the news. *dial tone* Quinn: Hey, dad. Jonathan: Son, I saw on uh... Luna News, the telescope thing Quinn: Yeah, we found one with water? Jonathan: Frozen? Quinn: Don't look like it. Jonathan: Oh, my Quinn, you're doing great! Quinn: Thanks, Dad. Bye. Jonathan: Have a good day. *disconnect* *fade to black*
