Rather than post these on separate threads, I thought I'd make a central repository for them. Even if you don't play the game, they still make interesting/funny viewing for an aerospace-oriented audience.

First off, a pretty tidy X-15 simulation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWdyYc45L6Q&feature=em-uploademail

If you are interested, here's the game's website: https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/

Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Epic Mars mission by Chris P. Bacon based on a book which is, in turn based on a real proposal from the early 1980s. I particularly like the "Jacqueline B. Kennedy Space Center"... ;)

Not a video this time, but an infographic showing the relative sizes of fictional and real planets including some KSP ones:

(it's WAY too big to hotlink to, of course)

I only wish I had a video of this, but...

I just crashed a ship on the mun (a prototype rescue ship, ironically), then launched another modified rescue ship, successfully touched down near the first ship, picked up the pilot and got him back to Kerbin safely, all in the demo game.

That may not be very impressive to players doing grand tours of the Kerbol System and it may mean zip to people who don't play the game, but DAMN it feels good to me! ;D Give it another ten years and I might be get half good at this.... ;)

Know what I forgot to do in the excitement? Take a damn screen shot, that's what.... ::)
