If you have been keeping in touch with me while I’ve been experimenting with kerbal space program, you’;ll know that I am utterly terrible at the game, but at the same time I’m still trying my best to progress and to finally land on the bloody mun! Surprisingly enough, after watching a YouTube video by the nerdcubed, that shamed me enough to finally make some real progress to get to the mun because he described himself as terrible, but at the same time I never made it into space as easily as he did. So I thought, enough of making a tit of myself and making stupid rockets that go nowhere, its time to finally make really progress into exploring the solar system!
The hardest part me for is transferring the orbit from Earth (Kerbin) to the mun, because the habit is boosting the your rockets so much that you end up out of the orbit of Kerbin and the Mun and you end up floating aimlessly in space. So I think that I can finally change the Deathtrap moniker of my initial space flight program to the explorer, or something less deathlike or having the impending sense of doom that having a rocket called the deathtrap entails.
Such as the explosions at the launch pads or mid-flight, while not as bad as it used to be, will never be dealt with completely! Either through impatience where I might accelerate too much so that the engines break apart, or that I run out of fuel to early, a multitude of things that could go wrong generally do!
My utterly awful attempt at making an orbit around Kerbin that will allow me a good chance to transfer my orbit to the Mun, but as you can pretty easily figure out, I failed miserably, but this screenshot can maybe give you some idea of how excited I was at this moment in time, before I failed miserably…..
Even after this setback, I am determined to finally make it to the mun, not necessarily orbiting the mun, but at the very least making a successful landing. Watch this space!
Wish me luck guys! Because if I fail this time, I may just cry my eyes out at this latest failure!
