  1. A Kerbal Apollo - An individual take on manned Apollo missions Since the Apollo program is my favorite part of historical manned space exploration, I have decided to play some Apollo missions on KSP (You might be aware of this if you have been following the What did you do on KSP today thread, but I am redoing this, this time with pictures and somewhat more detailed descriptions). I only intend on playing the manned missions, so flight tests like Apollo 6 will not be included (This means that I will begin with Apollo 7) and also, these missions will not be exact recreations, albeit I will do their rough objectives. (Apollo 8 for example will still be a Munar orbit mission) I also consider to include some of the cancelled missions (Perhaps Apollo 18 and 19, which means some additional Mun exploration), so this will not be just a purely historical recreation of the Apollo missions. The Skylab and ASTP missions will also be included, since I consider them parts of the core Apollo program as well, due to their use of Apollo hardware. Meet the Apollo Kerbonaut Group 1: - Pilots: Jebediah Kerman, Herfrid Kerman, Dooddon Kerman, Theoler Kerman, Buremy Kerman, Rocan Kerman, Melney Kerman, Geofcal Kerman, Samsel Kerman - Engineers: Bill Kerman, Haldos Kerman, Ludbree Kerman, Sigble Kerman, Jensey Kerman, Rodous Kerman, Mind Kerman, Jenlock Kerman, Newdan Kerman, Harmon Kerman - Scientists: Bob Kerman, Gilely Kerman, Ribley Kerman, Harlong Kerman, Bartgel Kerman, Hanton Kerman, Duwig Kerman, Aldrick Kerman, Macdon Kerman Mods used in this savegame: Bluedog Design Bureau (For the Apollo, Skylab and Saturn parts) Kerbal Attachment System (For the containers to carry mission equipment) Kerbal Inventory System (For the inventory inside the LEM containing equipment) Surface Experiment Pack (For the surface experiments used on the Munar surface) Tantares (For the Soyuz parts used in ASTP) USI Exploration Pack (For the rover) DMagic's Modlets (For several minor modlets) Modular Launch Pads (For the Saturn IB/Saturn V launch towers) Final Frontier (For the ribbons for the Kerbonauts) Feedback is welcome

  3. Hey guys, I'm currently reading a lot about the less famous NASA missions, and I've come to a very specific question, that I could not find any precise information on. My question is regarding the second stage of the modified Saturn V rocket, used to launch Skylab into space in 1973. As far as I know, the modified Saturn V actually consisted of the normal first and second stage, with the third stage being replaced by Skylab itself. In case of the "normal" Saturn V, the first and the second stage would usually crash down into the ocean, while the third stage - which carried the instrument unit - could be steered into another directory after the CSM/LM where separated from it. On Skylab however, I can't see, how the second stage would be removed from orbit, after placing Skylab in its orbit and being separated. It does not seem, like the second stage featured the necessary instrumental equipment or the means of RCS necessary. Does this mean, that the second stage was just moved away from Skylab a bit at separation with solid boosters, but left in an orbit slightly different than Skylabs orbit? I hope someone here can provide an answer... Thanks! Regards, Malz
  4. Hello! Some of our dearest Twitchers are preparing an awesome event and we wanted to help them spread the word: DigitalPsychosis, Kofeyh, NewbiusMaximus and Akinesis_gaming will be doing a Skylab mission re-enactment Twitch stream from the Esperance Museum (where the Skylab wreckage is being held) using KSP as their demo platform. The stream will be on 27th September, starting at 11:00am UTC and it will be held on DigitalPsychosis's channel (twitch.tv/digitalpsychosis) You can find all the details here. Don't miss it!
  5. Hey all, I'm playing with RSS and RO, with the dependant mods and some of the packs like the Soyuz/Salut ships. Today while I was trying to recrate a Skylab launch I encountered a problem where the Skylab would detach from the rest of the Saturn V rocket while in vertical ascent when hitting 3km in altitude. The Skylab would just fall off the ship and tumble back down to the KSC. The Skylab is the independent skylab mod. I've tried several different decouplers, different structures, different struts but cannot seem to fix the problem. I've restarted as well, I dunno what to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated, cheers.
