New Horizons Pluto flyby July 14, 2015

July 14th, 2014 (07:40 am)

One year from today, July 14, 2015, the NASA New Horizons space probe makes its Pluto flyby, with some ashes of Pluto discoverer Clyde Tombaugh [1906-1997] aboard - the first human remains launched towards interstellar space (Artist’s conception).


Which is why, 10,000 years from now, aliens send a clone army of Clyde Tombaughs against us.

Kerbal Space Program: Launching a gigantic soccer ball to the Kerbin Antarctic

July 13th, 2014 (07:11 am)

In tribute to the World Cup, Kerbal Space Program released its first official mod:
Kerbin Cup, which adds big soccer balls - Kerbal-sized and rocket-sized, to the game.


What can one do with a gigantic soccer ball in Kerbal Space Program? I thought I'd try to launch it to the Kerbin South Pole.

A little homage to old Burma-Shave signs.

SATISFYING TREASURE!

YOU SHOULD FEEL GREAT
YOU HELPED KITTY'S FATE
WITH LIVES, ONLY EIGHT
WE THINK YOU'RE FIRST RATE
RED ROCKET FARM

Kerbal Nostromo

June 22nd, 2014 (07:15 am)

The crew from Alien (1979) Kerbalized.


Done with The Kerbalizer (Full $2 version) with a few additions.

Ok, this didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped, but I am kind of proud of Harry Dean Kerbal's Hawaiian shirt.

And Yaphet Kerbal is rockin' that blue headband!

Kane, Lambert, Dallas, Parker, Ripley, Brett, Ash.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Kerbal

Since Time Immemorial, Kerbals have stood on the shore of their ocean and thought, "How do I get to the bottom of that thing?"

I attempted to be Kerbal James Cameron (Or, if you're Old School, Jacques Piccard and Lt. Don Walsh in the bathyscaphe Trieste in 1960, to Challenger Deep at the bottom of the Mariana Trench [wikipedia]), in Kerbal Space Program and dove to the deepest part of the Kerbin ocean.

Kerbal Space Program: Climbing the Mount Everest of Kerbin, the Kerbal Homeworld

Hey, why should we go to the Kerbal Moon, when there are still so many problems to solve here on Kerbin?

Thus far thwarted in my efforts to get to orbit, let alone the Kerbal Moon, in Kerbal Space Program, I've taken to exploring Kerbin, my Kerbal Homeworld. I've basically been geocaching.

I thought I'd try to scale the highest peak, the Mount Everest of Kerbin. It's across an ocean from the Kerbal Space Center, up near the Kerbin Arctic, in a range of mountains equivalent to the Kerbin Himalayas. Mount Keverest?
