Threads of the Month: July!


Recommended Posts

Happy Canada Day, everyone! With time still having no meaning, let's take a second- or hour, or minute- to reflect on Canada's contribution to spaceflight. There's the Canadarm, the Candarm2 (Electric Boogaloo), and Chris Hatfield's mustache. Canada was the third country to construct an artificial satellite! And did we mention that @Red Iron Crown is from Canada, eh?

 

Moving swiftly on, our first thread is @AG-cs' Little House of nightmares. The ships are cool, but the planet textures creep me out!

 

Speaking of planets, @prestja has updated a fork of Kopernicus so it's compatible with KSP 1.9.1. This is a great service to the community!

 

The forum rules require all posts outside the International Subforums to be in English, but it's not everyone's first language. If you learned English as a second language, @MarsBy2024OrBust invites you to share how you learned it!

 

Covid-19 has put a halt to most air travel on Earth, but thankfully there are no cases on Kerbin yet. @HolidayTheLeek is looking for passenger airliners. Are you the next Paul Priestman?

 

TOTM badges? We don't need no stinking TOTM badges! Not when @cineboxandrew has decals, instead. Now with 29% less treasure from the Sierra Madres! (Note: TOTM badges are still available, and do not smell.)

 

Finally, @Rocketscience101 took indoor confinement to the extreme. Over the course of a day and a half, he went to the Mun in real time, using only IVA view. Bravo, and well done!

 

A big thanks to this month's nomination committee: @DeltaDizzy, @EchoLima, @Just Jim, @Poodmund, @Nightside, @Servo, and @woeller.

 

And, as always, thank you to @adsii1970 for making this month's badge! Feel free to wear it in your signature with pride.

I've spent a week waiting for somebody to point out the misspelling here, and now I'm worried that it's actually some sort of forum in-joke that I've managed to miss out on.

But, to be fair, Mr. Hadfield does rock a good hat.

I told him about that. I thought he fixed it. :/

I don't make mistakes, so there was nothing to fix. He changed his name from Hadfield to Hatfield when I posted.
