  1. Hey all, I got bored and decided to ask the forum what terrible, terrible mistakes you've made in playing this game. To get the ball rolling, I'll tell one of my stupid mistakes. After about 50 hours of playing, I had just managed to successfully build an interplanetary science ship and land on Duna. After I sucked Duna dry of science, I launched and realized I had ludicrous delta-v still left, even after all the hopping around Duna I did. To be fair, I was using modded engines, but I still had the delta-v. At the time, I was still pretty clueless on how to transfer between planets, so when I decided I wanted to go to Moho, I created a maneuver node that dropped me from Duna's orbital height down to Moho's orbital height and into an encounter. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that to complete the maneuver, I would have to reduce my orbital velocity to zero, and essentially fall towards the sun until Moho got in the way. The issue was, with my 100kn total thrust, coupled with the fact that the solar gravity would accelerate me to a few hundred km/s, I couldn't slow down and ended up dunking my team of six 5-star Scientists into the sun. Woo.
