quiet fun actually, managed to shoot a ship in space for a couple of years, in orbit around the sun. I was aiming for a round trip to the moon
LORD HELMET:  I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's
former roommate.

LONE STARR:  What's that make us?

LORD HELMET:  Absolutely nothing. Which is what you are
about to become. Prepare to die.

YaY i crashed on the moon   ;D
Got proof i was closing in on the moon.



with the actual ship i was trying to land (i was around 1000-2000 KM away from the moon there happily crashing into it with a speed of around 750m/s, should have fitted actual retro burners)



And the big ass ship i launched to get there

Not just rockets, but huge rockets that spin out of control and killing the poor Kerbalites piloting it

I finally did it, i put Kerbanauts on the Mun! of course they will starve there because technically i crashed, but who cares about minor details! The brave Kerbanauts are alive, and on the Mun, so they landed there!
On small step for Kerbal, one giant leap for Kerbalkind.

and i got pics to prove it so it did happen!





you can even see the debris of the lander on those pics. And the names of the Kerbanauts!
Brave Camler Jonbert and Kelvey! may they live on forever!

One small stap for Kerb, one giant leap for Kerbalkind.

We landed on the moon and can actually get back again (so not a soft crash this time)




we won the space race. hurray for me. (next stop the other moon, minimus)

look at that cute Kerbalnaut standing next to his ship right before i got back in.
(and than i miscalculated his trip back home. He is now in orbit around the sun. He will never set foot on Kerbal again)

I was about to suggest a slingshot manouvre, but alas...

I picked this up on sale. I tried following the tutorial and was wondering why my rocket wouldn't do anything. Now I'm following a beginner's guide and realize that a) zomg you need lots of fuel and b) you need to press space.

Edit
Death toll: quickly stopped counting. We shall forever remember Bob who went on an eternal spacewalk after I forgot to add a parachute to the rocket and only discovered that error when I was in orbit.
