KSP doesn't have to be all explosions and silliness. Here's an atmospheric video of a nice little plane put together by Dirk Larien:

May I suggest this as a very good example of what can be done with KSP

You know all those jokes along the lines of "in the event of inclement weather, the airshow will continue inside the Antonov"? Well somebody had a go at it in KSP:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10MlunC2rMk#t=125.828934

Video by ShadowZone. Much other entertainment on his channel. :thumbsup:

Cupcake Landers does some gorgeous KSP videos. His craft are super 'cheaty' (full fuel tanks clipped through other full fuel tanks) but you just have to take it as sci-fi not simulation.

This is the one that persuaded me to post it (partly 'cos of the music):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GHVF-fY_uo

There are many others, with many other styles of music though. Check out his channel here:

Excerpt from Scott Manley's livestream where he built an awesomely silly dragon plane in v1.1:

In Scott Manley's latest Kerbal Spaceships are Serious Business video, he suggested that someone should re-write Homeward Bound by Simon and Garfunkel to suite KSP, so I took that as a challenge... :wacko:

Kerbin Bound
by Simon and Karfunkel

I'm sitting in the Minmus Station
Got a rocket to my destination
From Vall's cold ice to Duna's sand
my spacesuit and my snacks in hand
And every burn precisely planned
for a Kerbal who can never land

Kerbin bound
I wish I was, Kerbin bound
Kerbin where my thought's escaping
Kerbin where my music's playing
Kerbin where Valentina's waiting silently for me

Every day's an endless stream
Of ullage burns and hydrazine
And each world looks the same to me
The craters, plains and dark valleys
And every biome that I see
reminds me that I long to be

Kerbin bound
I wish I was, Kerbin bound
Kerbin where my thought's escaping
Kerbin where my music's playing
Kerbin where Valentina's waiting silently for me

Tonight I'll run the science again
Do crew reports, and hit SEND
But the only words sent back to me
are acknowledgements from KSC
Just functional, not poetry
I need someone to comfort me

Kerbin bound
I wish I was, Kerbin bound
Kerbin where my thought's escaping
Kerbin where my music's playing
Kerbin where Valentina's waiting silently for me


This is the video BTW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkQsWAACqOI&feature=em-uploademail

Scott Manley's done a presentation about how Kerbal Space Program helps science educators by engaging and enthusing kids. Really worth watching for anyone engaged in physics or science teaching.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogC6ds81gek&feature=em-uploademail



You see loads of comments like this under KSP videos, particularly Scott's. It's really amazing the effect good science-based games can have.
