It gives 0.325*g0 acceleration (KER shows), and it uses 0.75 propellant in 30 seconds (my measurement - could contain error), which means 5 propellant available for 200 seconds - and no mass change - that is 200*0.325*g0=637.65 m/s

About 600 mâ„s; enough to get into Minmus orbit.

Actually, enough to get into Mun orbit.

If you start from a really tall mountain and define "orbit" as anything that allows you to circle the Mun without more than dragging your toes on the oddcasional hill.

p.s.

It is *also* enough to return to Kerbin from EVE's moon Gilly Potato.

Just don't plan on landing, or anything fancy like that.

Actually, landing is no problem. A kerbal on EVA can re-enter Kerbin's atmosphere without any heating problems, and can drop out of the sky into the ocean and survive.

That seems way overpowered to me, and I wish they'd nerf it, but we play the cards we're dealt...
