Since cubic octagonal struts are incredibly light, they can be accelerated to insane speeds. Jettisoning them from your ship using the strongest decoupler in game will acelerate it to 6000m/s. Firing it with engines even increases this speed. So can we use this technology to shoot at really faraway things, like other planets? THE CHALLENGE: Hit various moons and planets with cubic octagonal struts by firing them from cannons in kerbin orbit. THE RULES: -No modded/hacked parts that give insane thrust or have zero mass or anything like that. Orbital telescope mods are allowed, however, so that you can aim at faraway planets. -Your projectile must be a cubic octagonal strut and NOTHING ELSE. You can fire multiple cubic octaginal struts at once if you wish, however. -Your cannon must be in an orbit around kerbin no higher than 1000km -You must post a picture of your orbital cannon and a picture of the octagonal strut at its destination -Scoring will be separated by which planet/moon was shot at -Scoring will also be separated into highest/lowest final velocity -getting into a planet's sphere of influence is acceptable, but will automatically be ranked lower than all shots that actually hit said planet -HAVE FUN!
