can we do the impossible?

Recommended Posts

okay, so i i started up ksp yesterday, and i didnt feel like doing anything productive, so i started a sandbox save and turned on cheats and messed around.

one of the stupid ideas was i strapped on 8 vector enginess to a mk3 command pod, and blasted off at 10,000mps, which led me to the question, what is the max speed you can possibly go in ksp,

also, how far can you go away from the kerbol system,?

You can attain infinite speed in Ksp, so there is no speed limit at 2.998e+8 m/s (speed of light) . Theoretically, you can also attain an infinite distance from the sun, although there tend to be a good deal of glitches when you load a ship that is very far away from the sun.

"The difficult can be easily done. The impossible will take a week."

Semi-official motto of the KSC Kraft Construction and Design Group, aka Kasey's Mad Kerbals

 

"Defy convention. Defy possibilities. Defy reality."

Unofficial motto of the same.

 

"Entice the kraken."

Graffiti seen under the above.

You can use Mass relay, or Turbo Pumped's attempt to reach Super high speed, he reached over 1/3 Lightspeed without Relying on That Kraken.

I'm in a quandary about the OP question - if you can do it by any means or at any time, then it's, by definition, not "impossible". If you ever figure it out, then you didn't do the impossible, you simply proved the prior belief that it was impossible was wrong  :) 

Semantics, I know, but it's been a loooooong week...Happy Friday!!

@The Aziz mentionned the Kaken as a source of energy speed.

I once cheated myself in low Jool orbit so I could try to land on it....

 

The kraken exploded my ship to punish my audacity. This is one of the parts.

Nani?

The NaN Speed Bug lives? Or, at least a portion of it...

That's only a dozen times c. Multiply that by roughly 40 million times and you get my own speed record(KRKND)
