Share Your KSP Moments Here!

Recommended Posts

Post whatever special moments you like, when you first landed on the Mun, when you first got into orbit, or landed on Duna! I will show my oldest screenshots my first orbit, in mid-2015; back then I loved the 1.25m parts and hated the 2.5m ones, it took me months to actually do it. [I had EVE and scatterer installed already].

For me it was the flight of the Eve Party Boat, a four kerbal return mission to the surface of Eve, back in the ancient days of my KSP experience (September 2014) about 7 weeks after starting to play the game.

For me it was more than a mission, it became an obsession. No matter how impractical it was (or how ludicrous my solution) I had to do it and in the end came up with this.

 

Launch the lander about 1/3 fueled into Kerbin orbit... check.

Make a silly number (must have been about 6) of launches to fuel the thing... check.

Attach a pair of huge tugs to get the thing to Eve... check.

Float down on an insane number of parachutes to a 6000m landing site I'd scouted out with rovers... check

Land perilously close to the scout rover that I used as a marker for landing... check.

Some time later I took the same design for a local hop to the Mun, as the entry for my Mun Rocked challenge.

Wondered what you meant for a moment.

Parachutes... absolutely essential for a Munar landing because of... er... erm... physics.
