This made me think: does it matter which way the tail fin is, other than it's in the way while landing, and that there's an f-load of stuff in front of it. But the hull and the wings can be arranged so, that the tail fin has a steady airflow through it, right?

In hydrodynamics we have to work with incompressible fluids and very hard numbers that allow us to figure out flow rates because volume has to remain the same.

I guess in Aerodynamics, particularly kerbal aerodynamics.... you just have to wing it.

And its not a therory- its a proven fact: if you put some body english into your board, you turn it.

Thanks for building stuff like this! I have actually watched a lot of your interesting designs closely, as I'm ALWAYS afraid to overlap wing pieces and have parts clipping into each other because I assume it'll just make it explode. But like with the tail control surfaces you have overlapped here I see again that I can be much more liberal with constructing things than I allow myself to be.
Keep up the Science and Gaming, thanks for the vids!

Hey scott, i think all you have to do when your kerbals are "paralized/dead in seat" is switch objects because it counts as out of the chair, and the control comes from the probe core, not the Kerbal. (a theory correct me if im wrong)

kasuha - 7 years ago
Cool idea :)
The reason why he turned backwards during reentry is because Kerbals have low drag coefficient (0.1) so the drag was putting the ship's lowest drag part (the Kerbal) ahead of center of mass. And the rest, including fair stability in that position was due to how aerodynamics of control surfaces is screwed up. A control surface flying backwards acts in the opposite direction than where it should.
I hope this all will go away with 1.0.

Too fun "Silver Surfer Kerman".  Adding some batteries aft might help w/ center of mass vs center of lift, and also provide power for control when the solar panels aren't facing the sun.

I was watching the video, and then this happened:
3:23 Scott: "My wife actually bought me a Hawaiian shirt, and I just thought it was cool-looking, it was kind of white and gold, and I thought 'oh, that's a pretty nice-looking shirt'. Only once I was sitting at the side of the pool did I notice that it actually was --"
Me: "-- BLACK AND BLUE!!!"

(Also, this was one of your most awesome videos ever, Scott.)

So, after watching this, I went back through your archive of KSP videos to check, and, it's confirmed.  This is definitely the silliest thing you've ever done in the game.

Could be totally wrong but I thought water was totally uncompressible. Save for those hypothesized planets that are purely liquid and have cores of solid hot ice from the density of the water above it

Jon Deal all things can be compress the reason we say liquid is not is because it is out side of human capabilty

If I remember correctly, water was found to follow the ideal gas law as if it started around 20,000 atmospheres.

+Tobias L. 1. yes we don't know, 2. a theory doesn't mean what you think it does and 3.  not being able to observe does not mean we cannot know, take mathematical models of black holes as an example. there. besides, earlier you claimed to know what was beyond the event horizon, your faulty reasoning surely applies to that as well? singularities are a well established theory (a hypothesis stacked with evidence) and black holes are generally considered to have some form of singularity at their core, a sizeless object with infinite density.

Tobias L. - 7 years ago
+Quinten Messemaker But we don't know exactly if that is true. Everything about what's inside black holes are just theorys. Light can't excape them, so we can't really get any data from the inside. So we can't know what really happen there.

+Quinten Messemaker I don't think black holes don't have a size. That would mean they are massless.I think the core of them is like normal plnets or stars. Just much more dense.

Quinten Messemaker - 7 years ago

+Jon Deal You can compress everything. Some things are more compressible than others though.

In the depths of the Mariana Trench the highest measured pressure was 1,086,000 Pascals making the density of water (at 277 K) 1048 kg/m³. Compare this with the density of water at 1 atm which is ~999.98 kg/m³.
Physwe - 7 years ago
Everything is compressible. Compress water sufficiently and you get funny kinds of ice that are far denser than Ice I (the ice we all know and hate)

+Jon Deal you can compress it, but not by much, increasing the pressure by 1 atmosphere decreases the volume of water by about 0.0046%

Most people actually seem to think that water is totally incompressible. Which is why they still cling to that old and tired myth that it has the consistency of concrete when struck with sufficient force.
This is obviously wrong, and while you can certainly die horribly by hitting water from high enough up, water never actually becomes as hard as concrete.
Also, while it's less compressible than air, it still compresses in a very similar way.

Not really related to the vid, but I'm sure you've heard of the new Thunderbirds that came out this weekend.  You should totally try and do a KSP version of them!  Or at least of Thunderbird 1, that might be do-able.    Like... a rocket that can land on it's tail or on it's side.  With wings that can pop out using insane robotics or the attachment system.

Thunderbird 2 would also be really cool, bu it would probably require cheats.  Being able to land something that big with just 4 dinky little ventral thrusters might be too much of a stretch.

I realized that KSP has the same part rotation/translation scheme as Solidworks (a 3D modeling program) when you are doing exploded views and motion studies and things like that.
