Landing on Kerbol


Question

I need your help!

If you can help me in:

1. The closest you can get without getting destroyed by the heat

2. How to turn off the heat

3. Parts to combat against the heat

Any advice would help thanks,

I have already made a video and concluded @Stratzenblitz75's video show's the closest you can get to the surface with no cheats, but I went beyond and see how close you can get with cheats.

I've done something like this before with cheats, it was pretty fun but my part temperature was through the roof before I even got close. Without cheats I dkbt think this is even close to possible without just a ridiculous amount of heat shields. And even if you do get close, you'll explode anyway just like with Jool. This is still a fun  challenge, though, if you want to see how close you can get.

Part of the problem is that the inverse-square law for solar intensity is incorrectly modeled in KSP. It should be inverse square of the distance from the center of the sun, but it is inverse square from the surface. This doesn't make much of a difference away from the sun, but when you get close the intensity goes up way faster than it should, with the surface effectively having infinite temperature.
