  1. Following the death of poor Valentina Kerman on Duna, Nicholas Enterprises has had a lien placed against all future rocket purchases. This lien will be lifted when a full eulogy for Valentina is published in this forum. This eulogy must follow the strict format of an English sonnet (see details here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fixed_verse )
  2. Definitely worth doing a bit of research on orbital maneuvering and how to dock... it's not particularly straightforward.
  3. Looks like you're making progress, but hopefully your pilot doesn't have to test out his parachute next time. Looks like you're having some trouble embedding pictures... please see me or one of your classmates for the next mission reports so we can see a visual record of your triumphs!
  4. Fantastic work. That's quite an accomplishment. Are you headed to Mun or another stellar object next?
  5. Congrats on your first working satellite! Looking good...
  6. Great job. Looking forward to hearing about the docking mission!
  7. Congrats on the manned orbit and EVA!!!
  8. Getting dangerous with this space flight stuff!!! :-D
  9. Glad it worked out, but I'd definitely flesh out that in-flight plan in MUCH more detail for future missions.
  10. Sounds like you're well on your way to the outer reaches of the solar system!
  11. What happened after your pilot deployed his parachute?
  12. Might want to flesh out that pilot plan significantly further. For example, flying straight up won't get you into orbit. How will you intersect the moon's orbit. How will you burn to get into orbit around the moon? At what altitude?
  13. Nice job on the space station! $130K Achieved.
  14. I'd definitely hash out that pilot plan in MUCH more detail before launch...
  15. How about the plan for exiting orbit and returning? Might be important... at least to the Kerbal!
  16. Good pre-flight briefing, but I would recommend thinking through HOW to achieve a stable orbit, how to exit and re-enter, etc.
  17. I would also highly recommend looking a bit more deeply into how to use parachutes / separate the command module from the rest of the rocket. Additional fuel / rockets should not be required for safe re-entry.
