What building has killed more kerbals than any other?

Recommended Posts

I'd have to say the launch pad, and not in the sense of crashing down into it. The launchpad is the place that if a crazy idea or contraption is on it, it's probably going to launch and crash, probably. And the launch pad assisted that by letting the vehicle launch from it.

If you count launch clamps as buildings (they kinda technically are), then those can be serious Kerbal killers if placed incorrectly.

For me it's the old launch tower, hands down. That infuriating lip at the top caught so many of my craft. I still get angry when I see it.

I used to call it the Red tower of death.

The astronaut complex. On my once-in-a-while rampage, I destroy all buildings, and the AC has the most kerbals inside. :(

I think I have to blame the SPH for most of my deaths, since that's where all the primary deathtraps come from (read: I suck at building aircraft)

The only time I have lost kerbals in my old-ish but still most recent career is when my SSTO hit the landing lights, killing all six on board. After that, I lost interest in the save, which is a shame. I had a Gilly mission, interplanetary probes, a mun base, a HUMONGOUS Minmus base, and several stations.

Usually it's the SPH and the light thingys, but recently it's been the R&D (don't drive in with big rovers!), the crawler way (do not use as a jump at 45 m/s with any rovers!), and the administration building parking lot. (Do not try to land a dragon V2 on a rover parked there!)

Maybe the tracking station, with its "terminate" option? 

I feel you. I have single handedly killed a 25 crew space station with the slip of a mouse.

What building (or part of one) has killed the most kerbals in your game? I think that it's the landing lights at the end of the runway, which I have run into many, many times when my planes veer off course. What do you think?

The Astronaut Training Center.  Specifically, the porte-cochère at the front door.  Literally hundreds of aircraft have crashed trying to fly through that.

It's the whole complex for me.  Twice now I've somehow deleted or lost my career saves (ok once I deleted the wrong file, the other time I have no clue where it went) killing every single Kerbal who happened to be in or near it.

Or maybe they just got put in an alternate universe.
