  1. Hi all, this is my first post on the forums but I'd like to bring to you something I have been working on for a while. This is One Giant Leap, an alternate history of not only the Space/Moon Race, but into the Shuttle era and Space Exploration as a whole. KSP is the medium through which I'm telling this so I felt putting it here was more suitable. I'll start at the beginning and try to keep this updated (hopefully). August 7th, 1964: The Giant Has Better Things To Do. By 3 votes, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution is blocked in Congress, thousands of protestors had gathered on Capitol Hill to protest the fact that this bill had even made it this far. But their efforts were not in vain, President Johnson would not get the authority "to take any measures he believed were necessary to retaliate and to promote the maintenance of international peace and security in southeast Asia." In other words, the United States will not intervene in Vietnam, instead, the United States will look upwards, to the stars, peaceful exploration, for the good of mankind. Although the Soviets had a head-start, placing Yuri Gagarin into space on April 12th, 1961, the US was quick to respond, sending Alan Shepard into space not a month later on May 5th, 1961. Despite the delays and setbacks, NASA is hopeful the fledgling Gemini program will finally pull the US ahead of the Soviet Union, shifting the balance of power in the Space Race. But in the distance, Apollo looms, the late President Kennedy's goal has not been forgotten, the United States will put a man on The Moon before the end of the 1960s. Dawn of Gemini: The Titan II GLV launches the first Gemini spacecraft on Gemini 1, marking the beginning of NASA's new crewed spaceflight program.
  2. On December 5th 2014, a Delta IV heavy rocket thundered into the skies above Cape Canaveral, carrying a prototype of NASA's new Orion spacecraft. The mission was a success, but behind the awe of the launch, NASA was in shambles: It was building a capsule with no intended use, and a rocket to launch it to nowhere! During this period, it was doubted if the Space Launch System would ever even fly, lest do anything of note. However, this was anything but a sign of things to come - In late 2017, the leftover elements of past programs such as Constellation and the Asteroid Redirect missions, were collated and reformed under a unified program, one which gave a goal and a future to Orion and SLS, one which would achieve NASA's 50 year objective of returning Humans to the Moon. It's name? The Project In this Project, me and @Jacktical are aiming to recreate all the past present and future Artemis missions, Including: - NASA launches - Commercial partner launches - International partner launches - And more We are hoping to keep this semi-realistic, with the initial Artemis missions playing out as is currently planned by NASA, with later missions coming (hopefully) our own interpretations and hopes for the future of Human Spaceflight Posts should be regular enough, but we aren't gonna make a strict schedule for it It's time to return to the Moon! NEXT LAUNCH: CAPSTONE
  3. "Ut Reveles Astra" BACKGROUND: Following the conclusion of the Apollo program in late 1972, the landscape of space exploration evolved. In the post-Apollo era, a private space agency named Liberty Innovation Inc. and its partners embarked on a mission to establish a lasting commercial presence on the moon. In late 1978, Liberty Innovation Inc. (LII) achieved a significant milestone by securing a government contract worth $20 million. The contract, titled "Commercial Lunar Transport Capability," was to begin development and testing to prepare for future launches of their moon rocket. The primary goal was to showcase the capability to develop a rocket capable of successfully launching payloads to orbit the moon and eventually facilitate lunar surface missions. Between 1969 and 1972, the Soviet N1 Rocket encountered numerous failures, raising concerns about the potential cancellation of the Soviet moon program. The prevailing thought was that an expensive moon program might not be necessary if the USA ceased its lunar exploration. However, the landscape shifted with the emergence of the "Astraios Program," initiated by the LII. Upon learning of the ambitious goals, the Soviet Union redirected resources to bolster their N1 program, striving to match and exceed the challenges posed by LII. This development caused apprehension in the USA, prompting the passage of an act that granted LII an annual funding of $400 million and increased the NASA budget by 9%. NASA and LII entered into collaboration, with NASA providing technology, crew support, and potentially contributing to the development of a next-generation crewed lunar lander. The revised Lunar Program now aimed to land humans on the moon no later than 1989.
  4. KASA: REBORN Heya! I'm Apempathy, but you can call me Ap. This is KASA: Reborn, a community project created and hosted by myself, centered around an alternate history timeline that begins in the year 2014. However, KASA: Reborn is unlike other projects in that it is powered by its participants. In KASA: Reborn, each participant (besides myself) controls a private spaceflight corporation, and through the Discord server that serves as the "hub" of the project, can compete in launch and design contracts, build up and launch their own private projects, and contribute to the overarching storyline of the space agency KASA, which is controlled by yours truly. At the time of making this post, the KASA Discord server has over 130 members, and over a dozen active participants. Currently, we're in the year 2024 in the timeline, but that doesn't stop you from joining if you'd like! The link to the Discord should be at the bottom of this post (if I remember to put it there...), and you may feel free to join in on the fun at any time to spectate, or even become a participant yourself! Now, as for the purpose of this forum thread, I'm essentially going to be posting a "recap" of sorts of every year in the KASA: Reborn timeline, starting in 2014. That way, those of you who would like to just read through the storyline as if it was a typical alternate history story can do so. However, I will note that it is quite difficult for me to include everything that happens, as KASA: Reborn is a very eventful project. So, this thread will just have the most important/notable timeline events. To see everything, it's best to join the Discord server. And hey, who knows, maybe I'll stick some other KASA-related stuff in here eventually! Finally, before I get out of here, there's just a couple of other things I would like to mention: 1. KASA: Reborn, as the name suggests, is not the first iteration of KASA. It's actually the third, but it serves as a sort of spiritual "sequel" to what we call "KASA Season 1", which was the very first. KASA Season 1 was also created by yours truly, and lasted from December 2021 to July 2022. KASA: Reborn began in October 2022 and has lasted ever since. Season 1 followed a completely different alternate history timeline than Reborn, and I may actually end up making a similar thread for Season 1 someday, if there's enough interest! 2. I also have a YouTube channel, where I post some long-form cinematics relating to KASA! It would really mean the world to me if you checked it out, as I've worked quite hard on them and I'm still looking for ways to improve my skills. So if you're interested in that kind of stuff, the link to my channel will be alongside the Discord invite link. Alright, I think that just about covers it, but if you have any questions, feel free to let me know and I will answer! So now, without further ado... Let the story begin.

  5. Hey everyone! This is my first post on the forums, but I hope you all like this idea! The basic idea here is that I create alternate history scenarios, but only pertaining to one mission. Each scenario will be its own separate AH, so there will be no need to read through all the scenarios for context! I may do AHs of AHs in the future (wink wink), but it all comes down to the support of the community here! I hope y'all enjoy this, and I can't wait to finish the first Mini Alt-Hist!
  6. What is Expanding the Horizons (ETH)? ETH is my take on the apollo program if a lot of AAP concepts and mission ideas (and some of my own ideas) actually existed in my kerbalized way along with many other blessed (or cursed) things! In my timeline Apollo 7 is the first Munar Landing after multiple failures and quick attempts to beat the Soviets to the Mun. Recently Apollo 14 landed on the Mun after month long delays and Skylab-4 is prepping for launch (since a lot of the Apollo stuff is repetitive I'll start this forum at Skylab-4-2) The year as of starting this thread is 1971 and hopes are high for NASA Scientist and the Space Community as a whole. I am open to criticism since I usually screw up things and screenshots will be very novice as I practice camera controls. Current Year: 1973
  7. not sure how to start this but here are the basics, i started working on this because i saw a gap in alt histories. most focused on apollo and the space shuttle, or around that time range, i however wanted to look into how nasa's constellation program and ISS program could have played out differently which made me mess around with concepts for a few months and finally without double checking things leading me to just post some stuff, i hope you enjoy and criticize me because i know you will
  8. Hello, my name is Autochrome. I know this forum has a great community, so I thought I might put this modern alternate history server out there because we are looking for kind people to help build it more. This hub of alternate history discusses the early 20th century, the world wars, and the Cold War/beyond scenarios in different channels. We are going to host events and make daily alternate history scenario questions, so it would be really appreciated by me and the people on the server if you joined. https://discord.gg/aK4U9PryQN (If the link doesn't work, just PM me and I'll invite you if needed)
  9. Odyssey, a rewritten history of Mankind's cosmic existence The Main Story Ever sense I gained the confidence in my ksp content I always wanted to make some form of series based on a different outcome of space exploration, including the constant conflicts between the proper way to conduct space exploration. With this I made a series that will hopefully be a new take on the exploration into the Stars and how not only the United States, but how the world would progress in space exploration. Notable People @Talverd Who Made Chasing Dreams which without a doubt is one of my biggest inspirations for this, especially shuttle missions @AmateurAstronaut1969 who recreated Space Station Freedom and gave me many ideas on how to make the future space station within this series and such @Jay The Amazing Toaster For their Series remaking the Constellation program Every mod dev such as @CobaltWolf @Zorg @Invaderchaos who made BDB, truly a cornerstone of ksp mods, and without BDB none of this would've been possible Launch Schedule (Will probably Never be 100%, things change) Note while I have the basic idea on how this will go, and made almost most of the first launches. It will take a long time to fully complete the mission. So stay tuned for another couple of days or so before the first mission is complete, though keep in mind I'm starting school soon and will probably be busy with alot of things. My main goal for this month is to finish the 60s and get them posted.
  10. From Ground To Sky By SixAndAHalfMen From Ground To Sky Is an Alternate History verging after the Apollo 17 Mission. Instead of the apollo program ending and skylab starting with George McGovern winning the 1972 election and shortly later increasing NASA's budget. After NASA's sizeable budget increase, the main objective is to put a sustained human presence on the moon. which brings us to... 1973 WIP
  11. I have a storyline planned out and plan to work on the first clip once bdb drops its next update as it involves skylab's launch if you guys are interested heres my insta i have a few teaser images and a clip. https://www.instagram.com/evan_hates_rocketry/?hl=en
