In the old days of KSP (as seen in old KSP videos by KurtJMac), they used to be a Crew tab in the VAB. It didn't do anything, and never did. Currently it doesn't exist anymore.

There is a memorial to the late Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, somewhere on the Mun. If you'd like a hint, highlight: It's placed at the latitude-longitude coordinates of the actual Apollo 11 lander.

Minmus has an inclination of exactly 6º, and both of the moons of Kerbin along with Kerbin itself have 0º eccentricity around their parent bodies. Gilly has a surface gravity of 0.049 m/s^2. Ike has an inclination of 0.2º and has a mean anomaly of 3.14. Kerbin has a radius of 600 km and Jool 6000 km.

All from memory, no wiki used.

those tiny cubic struts? NEVER EVER use those. They ruin EVERYTHING if you have any of them on your ship and dock. I've lost entire ships to them. I think they ought to be called "The Kraken's little angels"
