I don't really care for the whole christmas thing but a snowed over Kerbin ... yes! Who knows, maybe @Galileo might like the idea of a snowball Kerbin ... the seas gone and everything turned to ice.

How exactly do pine tree live without soil and oxygen??

 

fun pack btw.

There's a terrific article about pure ice soil trees here. The article by Dr. Astley outlines the following points:

  • Analysis of some evergreen species have shown that some may be able to survive in a vacuum.
  • Lifting the plants off of Earth can be accomplished with simple rocket motors.
  • Sometimes a plant species that originated as an underwater chemosynthesizing creature might surface and begin photosynthesis.
  • Original plant life on the surface of Europa or Pluto is extremely unlikely.
  • Too much nutrients in the soil is never a good thing.
  • Heavenly bodies such as Pluto and Europa might have nutrients in their icy crusts.
  • Extreme amounts of cold don't work very nice for planets, so they need to exist on tidally or stellarly warmed bodies.
  • Generally we can expect that most trees will die.
  • Additionally, most trees need liquid water as well, so they will need to be on thin-crusted ice planets.
  • Meltwater can suffice if the plant can warm up the ice on its own.
  • Except of course if you read only the first letters of each of the bullet points.

Hi, i'm EnriqueB, only thing is that I changed my computer and lost my original profile. And, I think the only thing that is missing is a chocolate chip cookie Tylo,

as Tylo has a ruggerized terrain with some craters :).

Tylo is a candidate for next year's Gingerbread Moon, but Gilly will be the cookie.

@GregroxMun, because of Kopernicus' great abilities, you should make a bunch of moons that look like ornaments...

 

Also, Happy Winter Solstice!
