Kerbal Kountdown!!!!

Recommended Posts

Maybe unmanned probes can equip a camera and return pictures from other planets for additional science?

Anagram of.... Why didn't we think of that, lol

that makes it 8 I think. The .5 is either Cassini or the botched up orbit.

For anyone out of the loop (like me) this comment on reddit provides a pretty good summary

https://www.reddit.com/r/KerbalSpaceProgram/comments/331b2p/new_clues_d_eight_in_this_image_apparently/cqgkznq

We got most of that several pages ago. The anagram is new (as far as I've seen). And their release date is wrong. Rockets don't lift off at 1. They lift of at 0. April 27th.

There are two ships in the picture and next KSP version is 1.0

2+1=3

Half Life 3 confirmed

What that the half clue?

Well, I am actually amazed we didn't come up with the anagram...

Anyway, I'm excited to see what they choose for number 8 today.

This is an...odd...coincidence. Maybe?

Went to geoguessr.com to play a round, and up at the top of the page is a banner with a countdown timer saying

The great journey continues in 08:07:41:01

Most likely doesn't have anything to do with KSP....but still strange.

Mares/ Envision is an anagram of Venera Mission *facepalm*

Never even occurred to me to wonder why "Mares" seemed so out of place...

*EDIT* PLEASE DON'T REP THIS POST! I didn't figure it out and getting repped for this makes me feel dirty.

Sorry,

"Mares" is the plural of "sea" in portuguese. I speak portuguese so I guess knowing a meaning for the word "Mares" blinded me for other possibilities.

At first glance, I thought it was Duna because it's reddish, but it's not being seen through a telescope, so it has to be the Mun.

Apollo program? Or maybe Russian space program as the Mun is reddish.

Something math oriented, I dunno.

"Today's #KerbalCountdown riddle: 6585, 21, 7, 29, 7, 22. Full resolution image at http://i.imgur.com/46PRtNo.png "

I like the red coloured Mun. As if it was in Kerbins penumbra, nearing an eclipse.

From a solar perspective a partial eclipse would look like a figure 8.

Does the little keypad looking thing have anything to do with it?

I think that's always been there?

The pic looks almost completely devoid of any useful info. A kerbal standing in a field facing East (I can tell by the Mun). The Mun looks like it's reddish (munar eclipse?)

Nothing else I see going on there.

Best,

Either that or.......we're getting realistic eclipses.

Also, I see a figure 8-ish in the craters.

Does this mean we'll get to see eclipses? Then again, they could achieve the reddish effect by having the resource overlay on the Mun. Theres a brighter red ring in the southern hemisphere for some reason.

googling...

Luna 8 and Ranger 8 were both launched in '65. Inspecting both for matching numbers.

*edit*

I didn't see anything compelling for any of these missions. I also checked for upcoming lunar eclipses. Nothing there either...

I'll look at the apollo missions.

Edit: Not Apollo 8, no matching numbers that I'm seeing.

the numbers Mason! what do they mean?

IMO that looks like an asteroid entering the atmosphere

I believe screenshot shows us an asteroid reentering.

Also, I think the sequence (6585, 21, 7, 29, 7, 22) refers to asteroids; 6585 O'Keefe, 21 Lutetia, 7 Iris, 29 Amphitrite, 22 Kalliope.

All of them (except 6585 O'keefe, couldn't find info about its size) are quite huge, diameters are at least >100km. Kalliope even has a moon.

Still don't know why 7 is repeated...

Only problem is, all of those are main belt asteroids (though one orbits a bit further out) and are as far from an Earth threatening asteroid as you can get.

Maybe we're getting an asteroid belt?

Also, needs more re-entry fire for a re-entering asteroid.

That's not the point of the riddle. It's not to hint at features, it is to try and find out how the riddle becomes the next number of the countdown.
