cylon basestars from the tv series Battlestar Galactica.

badass series
User avatar #108 to #92 - waffies (07/19/2013) [-]
i never knew where to start with that show! Is it just "Battlestar Galactica, season 1" or was there a show just called "Battlestar"? i know they made "caprica" as a prequel series....
User avatar #115 to #108 - umaya (07/19/2013) [-]
it goes battlestar galactica then galactica 1980 then battlestar galactica, then you can go on to watch caprica. i highly recommend bsg, then newer series, the old series are good but there isnt much of them, galactica 1980 is bad but you only have to suffer 10 episodes if you want to watch it too.

What game is this?
User avatar #50 to #48 - thelastamerican ONLINE (07/19/2013) [-]
Kerbal space program. It's worth paying for.
User avatar #60 to #50 - vincetacular (07/19/2013) [-]
I'll give it a shot, thanks!

My low kerbin orbit is just littered with junk it's really very, very annoying.
#41 to #22 - anon (07/19/2013) [-]
you can fix that by setting junk to 0 in the options. It doesn't add much to the game anyways and it only looks bad.
User avatar #73 to #41 - biomedic (07/19/2013) [-]
Yeah I like to play with as much realism as I can. If I cant design a system that leaves no debris then I should suffer from my ****** planning.
User avatar #51 to #41 - thelastamerican ONLINE (07/19/2013) [-]
It only adds realism to the game. If you wanna destroy the junk you gotta clean it out. You can do this by docking a satellite with an ion drive to the junk and burning in retrograde until it de-orbits.
User avatar #38 to #17 - gobnick (07/19/2013) [-]
i have multiple un-manned craft orbiting the sun...though they do not transmit....and they won't be on trajectory to re-enter kerbin's atmosphere...also, i launched a 3 man craft the other day....4 years and not a single pass close enough for re-entry.....2 looked worried....1 was screamin his head off in fascination all 4 years

Most of those aren't even functional. just broken scrap metal and spaceship parts.
#28 to #10 - sondrw (07/19/2013) [-]
sorry to say, but those are the ones that are actually functional, 3000 sats, if you consider scrapmetal and spaceship parts there are about 25 000 parts

I wish humans would slinghshot rocks in space so our planet could have a neat ring.
User avatar #31 to #30 - sondrw (07/19/2013) [-]
if we keep doing what we are doing, we're gonna have a ring like saturn, only with satellites and not rocks, high tech eh

Then Greenpeace ************* will come and start cleaning space and ruin the whole thing.

after a while i gave up trying to get to the moon. i could break out of the atmosphere, but that was it. In my intense boredom and large amounts of free time, i have mastered the art of the multi-stage intercontinental missile. I'm waging war against nothing.

Anyone else think of the scene from Wall-E where there where all the satellites orbit?ing earth

With the technology we have just now (If everyone stopped competing for their own systems) we could probably half the amount of satellites.

Since there are loads of satellites that aren't in use any more ("satellites orbiting the Earth today is around 8,300. Of these, about 3,000 are not operational"-Wikipedia), lots of duplicate satellites doing the same job (Just for someone else) and most technologies that are being used in them are from between 70's-90's.

It seems like a waste of time to do it just now though, considering the size of the Earth and the very little chances of a spacecraft colliding with it after launching from Earth. There wouldn't be a need to start cleaning up the orbit until Space Travel became more common, like sending people to orbit Neptune for a holiday etc.

And I still get no signal in my house.
