Axelord FTW Posted November 25, 2021 Share Posted November 25, 2021 (edited) While launching a craft with anti-matter in the tanks is ridiculously expensive (both in money and science), making your own AM on the ground is not so bad. I'll have an AM producing plant going on the runway, an AM-tanker truck, and an AM silo not too far from the launchpad. When I'll need to get AM in space from Kerbin, I'll transfer some from the silo to the ship on the launchpad and launch right away. AM is also costly in EC to keep contained. I can launch LH2 easily enough to fuel up the Frisbee engine in orbit, but I'll wait until the last possible moment to make the necessary AM. Most of the time I had was spent designing an autonomous construction facility (Extraplanetary Launchpads &Keridian Dynamics) which I'm looking to put down on Ike. The upcoming Duna mission will probably see a huge redesign, in fact. Here's the silo. While I was checking up on a few crafts in orbit, I chanced to take a pretty damn good screenshot of the Duna Explorer 2.
