What did you do in KSP today?

My first manned mission didn't go as smooth... The capsule made it home but poor Jeb died due to excessive G's during reentry. Mission control planned a much too steep reentry trajectory :(

 

Some nice, big rockets you have there... Where did you launch that crewed mission from? Is that Omelek?

Getting the right perigee for a return trajectory from the Moon is a real pain. No-one gets it right first time, except NASA... :D

I had fun downloading KIS and building an awesome cargo rover, just to find out that @IgorZ hasn't been able to cleanse the terrible sin of the 1-liter bug from existence, since it has the will to live that is almost unbeatable.

The bridge is ready

Really like the "Silk Road" concept!

I wonder what Bon Voyage would make of the bridge, too?

You've also got me thinking about ferries for vehicles to drive onto.  (Bridge is more efficient, though.)

EDIT:

Crossing the bridge 35 m/s (125 Kph) took me 9 minutes 45 seconds ! :confused:

Okay, I gotta know: This is part of Dakar 2019?

Nope, I was planning on doing Dakar 2017 in 2019 but flags from the old savegame kept disappearing in 1.6 . . . <_<

It's part of something much bigger, but I'm still not sure if I'll do it :

I've had a nice quick-transfer window for Niven, and decided to add a proper space station to the fleet of vessels sent.

Launching this monstrosity was rather problematic since even autostrut couldn't completely fix the wobbliness of 230 ton station + 2 transfer stages, but somehow I got it into low Gael orbit in one piece. And then...

The first transfer stage ran out of fuel just 120 m/s shy of completing the burn (mostly because a noticeable portion of its fuel was spent on getting the whole assembly into a stable Gael orbit in the first place), so I had to switch to the second transfer stage, which was using a nuclear aerospike rather than a more traditional hydrolox engine.

Either way, the station had successfully departed for Niven and is scheduled to arrive there in 74 days.
