Dear fellow Kerbalnauts... I'm happy to announce that today, Jeb, Bill and Bob became my Program's first Kerbals to set foot on another planet! My little brother rejoiced much. :)

And they have enough fuel left to reach Low Duna Orbit, waiting for a Return Vehicle, which is always an appreciated bonus...

•Chutes deployed! The spacecraft is still transsonic, and the surface approaches alarmingly fast... 7mN5x.jpg

•Nearly there: descending at 4 m/s... A0zdh.jpg

Why not have the outer tanks on radial decouplers staged so that they are used during landing and jettisoned to save weight thus giving more Delta-V for the ascent?

Utterly ineffective. The current version of Kerbol is more interesting to look at, but has neither heat, atmosphere, nor solar wind. That was just me attempting to be funny. :) But you are destroyed by some invisible barrier at around 120,000m, even though the visible surface is much below that. I think somebody did land on it, though, most likely due to a glitch.

I believe it was NovaSilisko (I don't know if it was before or after he became a dev), and he did it through save hacking.

Here's another screenshot of the O'Neill Cylinder I built.

Apart from the 3 pilots, it can hold 60 kerbals.

I think you'll need to promise you won't try cashing it into Kerbal... Or gas it.... or fight around it, really...

Duna base established! Mission commander Bob Kerman and mission specialists Hanbart and Macfel Kerman reporting from the surface. (hab module originally had 6 solar panels, but we experienced a bit of a rough landing)

Just a question : What is the name of the mod of the tiny camera on a rotative turret on your rover ? :)

No save edits, just ion engines (which are almost as bad...).

Also the kerbal on Laythe is Jeb, unfortunately I did not place a ladder that reaches the ground.

Lastly the thing on top is an airstrip.

Since the Kethane mod isn't updated yet, I had to find other ways of refueling my kerbals. So I thought why not put some huge fuel tanks on the Mun ( and later other planets / mun's ) and refuel them that way using the refuel part from the orbital plugin. A real pain to get into orbit, but they hold around 10k fuel after landing, enough for a couple refueling sessions :)

Those KOSMOS tanks sure look awesome dont they :)

By the way, kethane works OK in 0.17. It's got some bugs, but they're the same bugs that were in 0.16, so it's no big deal.

Hate to be the one to ask this but,

what mod allows the airships? It looks really neat.

Also, what mod are you using for the ion engines? I'm using DSM with the plugin, but the only ion engine aloud for use isn't very efficient.
