Where was the Kaboom?  There should have been an earth-shattering Kaboom.

Too bad its not quite as easy as just editing your persistent.sfs file to remove all the junk your prior attempts have left up there.  Built a speedy little Mun roamer last night using the faster wheels, even stuck some of those tiny rockets and fuel onto the back for a turbo mode( don't go past 60, the tires burst as I discovered :P).  It struck a dip and did a brilliant slow-mo corkscrew flight before landing upside down and self-destructing.  Great, two more Kerbals stuck on the damn Mun.


maniacbastard: Space exploration is dangerous and that is why we shouldn't do it!

You space nutters are going to get killed in the hard unforgiving vacuum of space!!!!!

Space exploration is BAD!!!

Am I doing it right?

Its a standard that you also need to shoe-horn 3D printing into the rant.  Maybe something about how those printers will never be able to make parts for spaceships or something.

Fisty Bum: FARK rebel soldier: Hadfield? Isn't he the Canadian who went on Reddit (his son set it up for him) for an AMA?

Yup.  He's been tweeting and Facebooking all sorts of awesome pictures from his stay on the ISS.

@Cmdr_Hadfield is one of my favourite Twitter feeds.


I don't follow any Twitter feeds, but boy am I glad when some of the stuff migrates down to Fark. Commander Hadfield is pretty damn awesome.

I Ate Shergar: Relatively Obscure: I like that he clarified that the stone was from the universe.

Well, you know how it is in space. There's always stuff coming through from other universes, and it's nearly all dangerous.
(Unless Star Trek, Babylon 5, Red Dwarf, Andromeda, Doctor Who, and probably every other sci-fi show ever - with the possible exception of Firefly - has lied to me. But that couldn't happen, right?)


Pretty sure Babylon 5 didn't deal with other universes.

You can look at it as a failed exploration mission, or do as I do and call it a successful start of a Mun base.

With a laser pointer.

And now you are being buzzed by UFOs with searchlights, right?

I've just been looking at a picture tweeted from a space station. Meanwhile, religion is panicking in case the wrong sorts of couples get married.

Frozboz: Is the damage the top part with what looks like tin-foil ripped up?  Or is the damage that small hole in the panel itself, on the left hand side?


Both. It was from a shotgun.

Met him once, back when I was an active rocket head, and ran a tiny aerospace company.

The shot is taken facing the Earth and what looks like 'sky' is in fact, a cloud.

It is a polite universe. That's we're the only ones making a racket in the radio spectrum. Some species use that to try to think.

Oops forgot that part.

So if you space nutters are going to waste money to die horribly you should bring a 3D printer because a bag of assholes or something.

\This is fun.
