  1. Hmmmmmm I need a plot device to start this off......... Year 3, day 239. Tracking station, KSC. Bob Kerman was looking over the latest astrometry read-outs on the jool system, while he was observing the orbital resonances, he noticed something anomalous between Laythe and Tylo, something defiantly out of the ordinary, disrupting the orbits of both of the planet-moons in a very regular fashion, causing a very interesting orbital resonance of both of the moons, eyes widening, he knew exactly what was happening, another planet-moon, orbiting between Laythe and Tylo, he rushed to th
  2. I think there should be a Liquid Hydrogen resource for them, too.
  3. Blocking radiation is something that typically done with very dense and heavy materials. So when you using a nuclear thermal rocket, while it would be safest to encapsulate the engine or even construct the engine out of dense radiation blocking materials It isn't practical as it adds a ridiculous amount of mass. The low mass option is to place a disk (or bowl) of said material between said radiation source (NTR) and the rest of your ship. This disk would cast a cone shaped shadow of safety.

  4. "In Our system we have Kerbol Radiation Not Cosmic Radiation" -Crazy Kerbal Scientist No.1947 Im Back here with another great suggestion: Presenting........... The Suggestion that would take years for me to figure out: COSMIC RADIATION , And More oh well , What do i even say , This game doesn't have any sort of Cosmic radiation , so i came up with this , Going to explain Breifly: 1- Lets say for example i reached space in a Manned Vehicle and my spacecraft has a MK1 Cockpit which has weak radiation sheilding so basically the Mk1 Pilot is going to get exposed to ra
  5. While Kron 6 mission is underway, Wernher von Kerman came to an excellent idea to get some actual data on the van Kallen belts that surround Kerbin and possibly, probe the other belts of other planetary bodies. It's something that was supposed to be done a lot earlier, but nobody thought about it. Except maybe for Linus Kerman, but nobody listens to him, anyway. Thus, OGRE program was born. OGRE stands for Orbital Global Radiation Evaluation. The probes will be equipped with a Geiger-Müller counter and will be carried into orbit by a two stage rocket (SRB and liquid bipro
  6. This http://www.nature.com/articles/srep29901 might influence decisions on future long term stays in spacey conditions. Health seems to be in danger when leaving earth's magnetosphere. Of course, the database is thin. From the Abstract: " The results demonstrate that space-relevant irradiation induces a sustained vascular endothelial cell dysfunction. Such impairment is known to lead to occlusive artery disease, and may be an important risk factor for CVD among astronauts exposed to deep space radiation."
  7. http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/2016/jul/18/nearby-supernovae-could-have-affected-life-on-earth I'm not sure this would be a widespread risk but it might cause problems for life at higher elevations. For people living in houses or even caves, the radiation would only be a factor when they are outside and outside is facing the nova.
  8. The other day I was reheating some food in the microwave for dinner, and I noticed (yet again) that my beans were still not very warm. I started thinking about how they don't absorb the heat energy from the microwaves as much as other food does, and they have a lot of starch, and then I wondered: Could starch be a good material for radiation shielding? Today I googled it, and the second result was from NASA! Here it is: http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20120006695.pdf So a starch-based material would be a very potent radiation shield, and it could be grown in spac
  9. Deadly Space Environment Realism Tired of things being Semi-Realistic, or Life Support isn't enough or to easy? Well I have a heck of an idea! Space is deadly, beyond the protection of our spherical home we face a variety of dangers. Not just the complete lack of oxygen, heat, food, water, and not being able to scream to your fellow kerbalnaut when that space plane you launched last week went out of control in mid orbit and is unexpectedly flying towards him and knocks him out of the sky without warning! No, we face an even greater
