Kerbal Space Program Part Four



Our team landed on Minmus during this project, and other teams landed on Duna and Mun. All of these landings and moonwalks have me thinking about the future of space exploration for humans. For example, I have heard a lot of speculation about a manned mission to Mars recently. There are even some talking of colonizing. It was watching the Kerbals jump so high on Minmus that I realized I will never buy into that theory. Mars' gravity is less than half of earth's, at 3.711 m/s. I cannot believe that prolonged living at that gravity would do anything but destroy a body, a slower version of the decay astronauts experience in space. So while visiting Mars may one day be a novelty trip for 23rd century earthlings, a house on the red planet will always seem silly to me.
