Entering the Cosmos!

Recommended Posts

 

This is a new career series, from a novice/rookie youtuber. In fact, these are my first youtube videos ever. It took me quite a long time to learn to edit these, but I think I'm getting the hang of it.

Two videos are up now, with another on the way, and lots, lots more to come.

Special hat tip and thanks to Scott Manley for the inspiration.

Any advice, tips, or suggestions are welcome! (both for KSP and video).

Enjoy!

Episodes 4-8 are now up on the channel. You can find the playlist here:

I'm about through all of my pre-recorded material, so updates will start slowing down to a more reasonable rate. Still, I think each episode is showing improvement. There are several fun movie references in episode 7, and episode 8 has a cliffhanger and everything! LOL.

Entering the Cosmos! Episode 9 is up.

Jebediah returns from the first manned orbital flight, we conduct a launchpad test of a new engine, and we send Gradie into orbit for a couple of days to test life support systems.

It really does barely run in opengl mode. We'll see how it goes. I may have to trim some unused parts as time goes on. I'm really, really looking forward to 1.1 and the elimination of the memory restriction.

Episode 10 of Entering the Cosmos! is up now. I have a better microphone, which hopefully will help a bit. We crash a probe on the Mun, attempt to complete the X-15 contract again, and take a "rover" around KSC for science!

Episode 11 of Entering the Cosmos! is up. We fail to improve our rover efforts to capture science around the KSC, and we send our first unmanned probe to Minmus!

Episode 19 is up!

Picking up right where episode 18 ended, we complete our docking mission in Low Kerbin Orbit.  We bring Gradie safely home, send Jebediah up into High Kerbin Orbit, get some extra science from our latest lander mission en route to Duna/Ike, and begin prepping for our RemoteTech satellite communications network.

We have a double-episode up now, for our first unmanned landing on Minmus:

 

 

We land an unmanned probe on Minmus in the pursuit of more science, to power our space program to new heights.

This is the first of a two-part episode. Try as I might, I couldn't squeeze the whole thing into less than 25 minutes, so we have two 17 minute episodes coming, back to back.

As I'm creating these videos, I'm still using and editing gameplay footage recorded from September.  Yes, I'm that far behind.  It has been a huge learning curve creating this series, and I'm thoroughly loving every minute of it, but the time commitment has been a lot bigger than I ever thought it would be.

Because of the massive time delay, I'm starting to have difficulty remembering where and what each craft and mission was.  To help me out, I've created a Google Docs spreadsheet listing every mission and craft in the Entering the Cosmos! series so far, along with the type of mission, success or failure, the current location of the vessel, notes on the mission, etc.  

I've put a link to this document on the OP, and I'll put it here as well.  Feel free to commentate, make suggestions, notify me of errors, etc.

Enjoy!

We send Bob and Kerner to the Mun in an Apollo 8-style mission, fully testing the new Bophus spacecraft, and collecting lots of science!

Entering the Cosmos! - Episode 27: Bophus Minmus Mission is up:

 

Sean and Mirenna take the Bophus 2 spacecraft to Minmus in preparation for the first Kerballed landing on another world.  

I'm trying something new on this one.  This episode is entirely from Sean Kerman's point-of-view, complete with historical audio logs recorded during the mission.

It took a while to get this one complete, but Episode 28 is now available:

Narrated from Sean's missions logs, Sean and Mirenna complete the Bophus 2 mission, landing on Minmus, making a few discoveries, and safely returning home.  

 

Had to fight serious personal illness and a lot of personal drama to get the time to finish this up.  We still have a lot more episodes in progress.  Let me know if you like the kerbal voice work on these last two episodes.
