  1. 1. Which Planets SOI's have you entered and returned safely to Kerbin?



Recommended Posts

There are many planets in KSP, and hopefully more to come, but how many have you visited? This thread is to show off which planets you have visited and maybe some of the spacecrafts you conquered them with. Vote in the poll so we can all see which planets have been visited the most! Thanks, and happy posting! :sticktongue:

I've been to them... Just haven't returned from them.

I've been to and from each one at least once; most quite a bit more than once. After this long playing KSP, it would be kind of amazing if I hadn't.

I have only been to the ones with atmoshperes, but tommorow I launch a mission to Dres with a station and prove I will leave there

At the poll you should include all the planets including the sun, aka went to interplanetary space but didn't manage to get to any planet and the option all of them and none, just orbited Kerbin. Given the title of the this thread i've been to every planet and back.

I've made it to every planet in the game, but have yet to return anything from Eeloo. I generally play career, and am big on time management. So, by the time anything could get to Eeloo, I'm mostly done with the science tree, and am just sending out a small satellite for the "return science from Eeloo" contracts. I need to add that to my list of things to do, maybe just do a sandbox mission so I can check that last one off. :P

Only planet I've been to is Duna. Sent a ship out there some months ago and attempted to land and botched it. The pilot was fine but his ship was destroyed.

Hoping to catch em all in my new save.

Duna. I've played 1500 hours and haven't returned from many places, but I've gone everywhere except eeloo and pol (well, went there, didn't land)

All of them except Moho. Eve, I've returned from it's SOI but I've not attempted a return from a landed spacecraft.

I was at Moho but as my probe managed just to crash into it at about 200m/s I count that as only saying "hi" to the planet.

Manned landings on:

Mun.

Minmus.

Duna.

Eve, (Once accidentally, once to rescue them).

Vall (This one wasn't legit, as I used hyperedit and I was testing a Jool-5 lander. But I'll put it here anyway.)

And finally Laythe.

Unmanned I've been everywhere.

And I have a base on Minmus.

Manned landing and return from all of them with the exception of Eve. Have put an unmanned lander there, but have yet to build a lander that I have confidence will be good enough to bring a crew back rather than strand them there.

"Oh, this is easy. I've been to so many planets-"

and returned safely

*selects Duna and nothing else*

So far I've been to Duna orbit (with kerbals) and returned. But I have yet to send a manned lander to it's surface.

My interplanetary vehicle would have had room for a lander, but I was worried the crew would go insane being cooped in such a small capsule, so I used all of the payload budget to give them extra rooms to live in for the long interplanetary wait... So they couldn't land, but they were comfy.

I've done a manned landing and return from every body in the game except for Eve and Moho, in stock. I have a ship which should be able to do Eve relatively easily, but I haven't gotten around to doing it. Not even tried to tackle Moho yet.

Manned Landing and Return:

Mun

Minmus

Duna

Ike

Gilly

Dres

Laythe

Bop

Pol

Manned flyby (no landing, either because didn't bring the equipment or can't) and return:

Kerbol

Eve

Jool

Tylo

One way orbit insertions:

Moho

Eeloo

Vall

Those of you who know, where should I go next? Moho, Eeloo, or Vall? I don't have the spare time to conduct an Eve or Tylo mission.

I have tried to land on Duna before, but it always ends up with something going wrong at the last minute (Example: I was 50m from the ground at Duna when my lander flipped out of control. The lander disintegrated, but the science data was fine. I planned to launch a rescue mission until I had the bad idea of flying a Kerbal to another biome and get more science. He smashed into the ground while carrying all the data.)

EDIT: I finally completed a Duna mission!! (no screenshot, sorry)

I never bothered to visit Moho, the space meatball, or dres, The lonely space rock, or Eeloo, the deep space snowball. Dumping atmospheric probes on Eve since .23.5, more in .90 (Biomes), and landed a few contract probes on Gilly. I have a base on the Mun, loads of ditched ascent stages in minmus orbit, and tons of rovers and descentstages on minmus's surface. two decommisioned rovers( Broken wheels) on Duna and a crew SPR rover and a habitat, all currently unmanned, in Duna orbit. i inally gave Ike a visit when one of my "sample return" missions was cought in Ike's SOI during a duna departure back to Kerbin. I've had probes visit jool and mostly end by plunging into it's thick atmosphere, but i recently launched the surveyor-J5mission, which will land a small probe on all it's moons other than Tylo. I have a larger lander for Tylo. Oh, and i crashed a old space telescope thati happened to put a parachute on into laythe's oceans in sandbox, which is in a alternate parralel universe thanmy career Jool colonization save, where supposedly Jool is in Orbit arouund a black hole and the KSC know almost nothing about Jool.

I only have one craft that went in Eve SOI... and it didn't return. (I'm kind of new to non-kerbin orbit flights. Sorry if that sounds nooby.) :blush:
