How do kerbals reproduce?

Kerbals can remove the helmets on Kerbin, I assume they wear the spacesuit as its free company wear.
Note that they also wear parachutes stationed on an mun base once qualified for them. 

Lack of any other structures on Kerbin is more of an issue. Summoned is more troublesome as summons tend to be temporary in games like Skyrim. I don't want my 4 million credit kerbals in Eeloo orbit to time out. 

Welp, they do have the ability to take their helmets off, but that has to be done manually because they have to hold their breath and their eyeballs in place, or something. Maybe, maybe they can breathe on Kerbin, but what that proves? Only that they breathe, nothing more.

They obviously don't time out, though. Neither will they die, they are simply molecularly rearranged into themselves time and again. Which, for me, means that they are, if not summoned, 3d printed on Kerbin. But I insist their 3d sketch files are downloaded from somewhere else.

Kerbals don't reproduce.  KSP is a simulation, and it's what we would have seen on the silver screen if Neo had taken the green pill.  Yes, there is something behind the curtain, but it's all maintained by computers:

There are fields, Jeb, endless fields where Kerbals are no longer born ... we are grown.

You have inspired me with your idea

They're synthesized in vats in the Astronaut Complex.

All the matrix references here are amazing. Having seen the 1st and 2nd not long ago, i laughed hard at some of the posts

An office dress-code: a spacesuit, a helmet, a parachute. 
They should add the badges with names.
And a corporative team building.

Like logs. In every crash.

One more person tries to tell us that Kerbals are not real.

Not at all.  I merely said that your interactions with them are driven by a computer simulation.  Consider the feelings of loss and frustration when your Jool-5 mission crashes at the pad because of bad staging, or when you lose a pod on reentry:

Jeb:  (Pained) I thought it wasn't real.

The mind makes it real.

Jeb:  If you crash in KSP, you crash here?

Always keep your output.log.

Wait... I'm confused...
So:
1) Kerbals are not unreal
2) Kerbals are a computer simulation.
3) We can interact with them.

We are a computer simulation, too?!

New Kerbals come from RoverDude's 3.5m MKS Tundra Colonization Module of course.  ( https://github.com/UmbraSpaceIndustries/MKS/wiki/Parts-(Tundra-Series)#mks-tundra-colonization-module )

While they can also be spontaneously generated by cosmic rays hitting derelict pods, the 3.5m TCM is the only known controlled environment able to reliably produce them.

How... violent impacts with planetary bodies that's how.

The force of the impact blends the mushy, gooey genetic material that prior to the impact was the occupants of vehicle. This blended material is vacuumed out by the recovery team, and placed into plant pots out the back of the Astronaut Complex, where they eventually grow into full size, and space besuited kerbals. They are then given a shove in the direction of the rear door of the Astronaut Complex (they're a little dopey at this stage), given a 15 minute orientation lecture and have a copy of "Space for Dummies" jammed into their eager little gloved hands.

After that they are placed on the roster and shoot some pool while waiting to be assigned.

No wonder they´re all about green: they replicate themselves, "when the time comes", just like the most of amoebas. That´s how they´re so good-looking and alike.

Finally you get it. Wake UP!!! That car crash nearly killed you, but you can't just give up on REAL life. WAKE UP!!!

That´s a REAL good use for scientific knowledge. Thank you!:D
