So tell us how it works...

Looks fun.

It's just a craft with tons of delta-V to get your craft around the solar system. It's used to "transfer" your probes around the solar system. For example i put this on my rocket and used to put an satellite around Moho. Basically it can take relativity small payloads anywhere around the Kerbol System. Also congrats on your 1st post!

Or for those that know Space History: it's a nuclear shuttle. I think it can even do what Von Braun planned for the full STS - Mars mission.

That being said, While one can excuse the the Petals of liquid fuel tank, that NERVA-2 (edit for clarity: positioning as it is )is a bit too much, I think.

I added the second Nerva to cut down on any excessively long burn times. Besides, you can remove the second one if you want to. Although taking it away adds 1,200 Delta-V, most of my probes are small and don't need that much Delta-V

Isn't the "10,000 dV" entirely dependant on the mass of the payload?

I know that and that's why I put (As long you don't put to much weight on it). It still does great with a 5T payload. It got me into a orbit around Moho.

Thanks,

I am a long time lurker. I'm going to try this out today.

That's great!

That's great! If you want you should post a new thread in the Welcome Section of the forums. Do you think I should post my launcher family?
