king of nowhere Posted September 5, 2022 Share Posted September 5, 2022 (edited) It's my fault, I admit it. I already have 3 long challenges running, but I stumbled over the speedrun challenge and couldn't resist picking it up. As the name says, the purpose is to complete all objectives in career as fast as possible Quote 1:Flag on every celestial objects EXPECT JOOL AND SUN 2:Return from every object‘s surface EXPECT jool (high atmosphere is enough)and sun(low space is enough) 3:Catch an astroid and bring one to kerbin orbit. 4:Do these all above in shortest IGT(in game time) IN CAREER MODE That's quite a lot of stuff to do, but most of that is irrelevant because it can be done simultaneously. The slowest thing is the mission to Eeloo. Now, I know from having done it in my DREAM BIG mission, it is possible to make the Eeloo-Kerbin trip in one year with 10 km/s deltaV. So I figured, a fast ship with lots of xenon can have 30 km/s. 10 km/s to eject from Kerbin, 10 km/s to capture around Eeloo because that kind of trajectory will have a tremendous intercept speed, then 10 km/s to return to Kerbin followed by hard aerocapture, it is possible to make this mission in less than 2 years. Similar considerations go for Jool; Jool is a bit closer than Eeloo, but it requires more stuff to do once you're there. Everything else can be done while waiting for the two years of those missions. As for farming the science required - which includes ion engines and rtgs - it can be accomplished by biome-mining Mun. I bet it can be done in a week. So here's the objective. Starting career, land everywhere and return in two years. Edited September 5, 2022 by king of nowhere Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
