Is this a good name for Curiosity's ChemCam:

Or here's a slightly less forced version:

Sorry I could not post a KSP video this week. I was testing my craft and ran out of time. Currently more testing and research is conducted at the KSC to see if my low part count chip to Eeloo can actually make it there are not. I will give more updates soon. Follow me and the forums to see updates and videos. Subscribe to me to see the video when it releases. I plan to do a premiere.

In an electron-positron annihilation, in what direction are the photons  released? - Physics Stack Exchange

Is this electron vs positron and annilating each other?

yes

I just launched, docked, resupplied, undocked, and deorbited a progress.

I speedran a Mun landing. It took about 11:45:40 seconds on the MET

Did the kerbal survive? I once did a mun landing with an electron rocket (MK1 size), a photon and a nfs mun lander (It's MK0 sized!)

Yes, it was my normal thing, with three Kerbals, I landed, Planted a Flag, and left.

UPDATE 1 on Low Part Count to Eeloo 

After much experimentation and research. Eeloo require a lot of delta v. The biggest burns include the escape, the slow down to Eeloo, landing and take off, and going back to Kerbin. To make my self not worried about this I plan to make sure that in space the rocket has at least 12,000 m/dv. This makes sure I dont panic and freak out when I'm low. I'm not a Kerbal Space Program pro that can do gravity assist at a whim. So the 12,00 m/dv is a good thing so the mission can go well. And if you are asking how many parts well, that depends. I want  lot of xenon gas and electric charge. So l will properly use Z-1k Rechargeable Battery Bank, 2 SP-L 1x6 Photovoltaic Panels, IX-6315 "Dawn" Electric Propulsion System, and PB-X750 Xenon Container. That will be used for the transfer stage. However, I'm scared that the ion stage wont be able to land or take off. So.  I'm going to have to test that.  

The 1st and second stage will be simple. Oh. I forgot to mention. This rocket will have three stages. Possibly four. The second stage will be a nuclear engine with the fuel tank. What sit called again? Oh. Ya. I will use the FL-T200 Fuel Tank or FL-T400 Fuel Tank drained of oxidizer. I'll have to see how far I can push the nuclear engine. 

The list stage will be a solid fuel rocket booster. I might use the S1 SRB-KD25k "Kickback" Solid Fuel Booster. It had about 1,986 m/dv. That was good.  That's it for now though. Bye.
