What are some theories you/other people have on the biology of kerbals?


Recommended Posts

I’ve seen a few different ideas around the forums about Kerbal biology (Kerbiology?) including that they reproduce by spores, hence the grey cloud that gets released when they *ahem* lithobrake a bit too enthusiastically, or that they can survive on photosynthesis alone but will atrophy mentally without eating (brain food taken to an extreme).

But if you’re talking Kerbiology, you have to mention @KSK’s theory that Kerbals are in a symbiotic relationship with semi-sapient contact-telepathic trees capable of large-scale biogeoengineering, and the entire space program is just a means to start an interplanetary tree-planting initiative.

It almost makes sense when you put it like that. :)
