    The Kerbal Space Program Total Sperg Zone

    Probably my best KSP screenshot so far, or at least, my favorite. I dorked out and decided to write a little blurb to go along with it. Please do not take it seriously. "MoonLab represents our first base outside of the Earth's Orbit, and in that regard it's certainly a remarkable achievement. You'll hear the Skylab guys talk up the fact that they have the nicer facilities where they can get the real science done, but don't pay any attention to them. They've had it easy. When we went to MoonLab, me and the guys spent the first two weeks living out of the Command Module. You see, while Skylab was launched more or less finished, MoonLab is a Wet Workshop. The Labs, Wardroom, Control Center, all of that had to be unpacked or outright built in those empty LOX and LH2 tanks. When you take that into account, you can see where Skylab has the "nicer" facilities. By comparison, yeah, we had to 'rough it', I guess. At least in the early days. That didn't mean that MoonLab was some sort of waste. We successfully proved people could live and work for months at a time away from even Earth orbit, even build a station, if they had to. We've taken up the ALSEP Mission, and performed detailed orbital observations of the Moon. We're just itching to get someone like Schmitt up there. Ultimately, you have to understand, there was just this kind of rivalry between the Skylab and MoonLab crews. They'll never say it, but they're just jealous our guys were the first back to the Moon. NASA tried to smooth it over by giving them the nicer station, but I guess it didn't work." - MoonLab 2 Mission Commander CDR Ryan Hale (USN), June 1976

    MoonLab SIVB Wet Workshop, from Stephen Baxter's Voyage.

    I'm building the interplanetary vessel Ares from 'Voyage' by Stephen Baxter. Once completed this will be my largest KSP vessel. It was fun to see that my earlier Eve vessel was very similar. The crew and MEM are next up along with refueling this beast. The CSM pictured is the attached construction vehicle. I had some difficulties lining up the SII fuel tanks with the main body of the vessel. This may take a rebuild.

    Adventures in KSP Pt Whatever Space Probe Argonaut VI arrives at Eve to conduct a scientific survey. MOL Variant Docking test. This is heavily inspired by the USN MOL from Mike Jenne's Blue Gemini series. Another Gemini MOL

    NATO Gemini Missions, 1964 RAF Gemini being launched by a Blue Streak and a USAF Gemini Titan II. The Blue Streak in the Commonwealth Rockets pack is a weirdly beefy rocket. Although I had to beef it up with an upper stage that's a Titan engine mated to some Blue Streak fuel tanks. It's kind of cheese, but it make for some interesting screenshots.

    Everything broke in KSP! So today I have a montage of effecting repairs. An Apollo Block V Delivers a habitation and secondary solar generation plant to Skylab. Station wigged out and pointed the wrong direction, and in the process lost all power. Maiden Flight of Big G on a Saturn Multibody. The Big G is serving as a rescue vessel for stranded Kerbonauts. In this particular case a CSM's heat shield exploded, annihilating the service module and sending the command module spinning out of control. The crew of the destroyed Apollo craft, plus a KSAF Space Rescueman. All of my missions were successful, although I'm left wondering what I did to provoke the Kraken....

    Awesome! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    Today in KSP "What if Land" I put up my first permanent Space Station (on this playthrough), Skylab. For fun, I took some inspiration from the actual Skylab B and docked a Soyuz. Alas, Skylab B never flew, but it can be seen (and walked though) at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.

    Everything you ever wanted to know about the USAF Manned Orbiting Laboratory but were too afraid to ask. So I have an absolute love for all things 1960s and Space. Apparently in 2015 (because I was too busy with work) I missed that the NRO and USAF declassified a bunch of materials on the MOL. Fascinating reading!

    Did my first interplanetary mission today! The first image is of the spacecraft shortly after arriving in Eve's sphere of influence. JJ Abrams lensflare shot of the Mothership, Aphrodite. It's heavily inspired by the Apollo Applications Program manned Venus flyby vessel. Mine has an added habitation module, and a lander slung under the vessel. Arethusa on the surface of Gilly. This...wasn't really needed other than to gather some science off this one biome. Mission was accomplished though! Rendezvous was a bit tricky. I had the pilot jump and fly over on an EVA pack. The lander served it's purpose anyway. MechJeb went screwy and said I had way less fuel than I thought I did. I ditched the habitation module to gain some extra DeltaV. Beauty shot of Ishtar after a successful Kerbin capture. The mothership was claimed by the Kraken on the way back from Eve. She's adrift somewhere over Kerbin. No fuel or power. No doubt a later project for me.

    Latest shots from my Minmus Missions! I loaded up KSPRC. Upside is it makes the game look absolutely amazing. But my system is having a hard time of it. I may need to go a different route for visuals.

    Woomerang Ballistic Missile Testing Range, North Kerbistan, 1965 HGM-25 Titan I undergoing sub orbital testing. Warhead reached target area in the polar region. SM-75A Thor moments after liftoff. Extensively modified HGM-25 Titan I. Third stage added with additional fins following a few launch accidents. This was the result of a desperate need to perform Munar and Minmus satellite missions. A modified Atlas wasn't quite the rocket for the job. This thing has a staggering 7,600 m/s of Delta V, twice that of a Titan I carrying a Mun/Minmus Payload, and considerably more than a Titan II with a Gemini spacecraft. It also looks rad as fuck. I used the BlueDog Design Bureau pack, which has a pretty comprehensive collection of US rockets, probes, and spacecraft from the 1950s-70s.

    So, I'm getting the hang of RB. The tanks that I was iffy on in Arcade have become some of my favorite. The Soviet Tree really shines in RB. I submit this as photo evidence, I hid in a forest and ambushed some poor unsuspecting Tigers. I really took them by surprise because I took down 2 in the time it took to reload. Then I did some mean things to an RU 251, and a Ferdinand, then another Tiger and some SPAAGs. Eastern Europe went from one of my least favorite maps to my favorite bar none. Also this screenshot is horrifically misleading. I had a string of really bad losses that I won't share pictures of, because I was raised with decency and have a sense of shame.

    B-29 complete with a bomb bay modified for a Tallboy. Alas this did not satiate the USAAF's lust for destruction, and instead a B-29 was modified to carry... ...TWO Tallboys. Just looking at this I've been both shocked, and awe'd.
