Can someone help check my math? Hitting 40 mile wide reentry corridor on return from Moon (~238,900 mi away) = hitting a 2cm postage stamp from 100m?

I believe Apollo 11, as one example, had 3 midcourse corrections on the way back from the Moon, with the last only about 3 hours (roughly 10 000km?) from re-entry.

That's more like hitting the 2cm stamp from 3m away, but I think the point should be that reducing it to a single improbable act fails to capture how it was really done.

My career mode space station is now an orbital refueling depot. The big tank in the foreground is almost entirely full.

Yeah that happens to me a lot. A quick return to space center and back fixes it for me, but still, annoying.
Station looks good though :)

Scavenger hunt: You should reach out to the folks at Geocaching.com. Do a Nerdfighter Adventure Cache! I know a couple of the founders. I know they'd dig it.

Video about workless society: Check out G. Harry Stine's the Space Enterprise, he talks about the Quaternary Economic Systems Technology (QuEST) work ethic, which amounts to people not working because they have to but out of a desire to do good works.

I know you probably wont see this, but I would regret not shouting it at you in the digital ether.

Using the same first stage and a very similar upper stage, I launched a lab module up to my growing space station. The plan is for the automated upper stage will remain in orbit as a space tug. I now have two Kerbals slowly processing science onboard station.

Yay! Does this mean videos are finally going to be posted for us out-of-towners to watch!?

Last weekend to take photos of flying things for the Spirit of Flight photo show at The Museum of Flight in Seattle.  #photography   #aviation  #birds 
 
Photographers of all things flying, the Museum of Flight in Seattle is accepting entries until May 28 for its Spirit of Flight Juried Photo Show. Accepted submissions will go on display in the museum from September through the end of the year, and photographers have a chance to win a museum membership good at hundreds of partner institutions across the U.S.
The Museum of Flight is once again accepting submissions for its annual Spirit of Flight juried photography exhibition. Exhibit participation is open to all photographers, and photographs need only reflect the photographer's interpretation of the "Spirit of Flight". A jury of museum staff and ...

Also, you should make a video response to Macaulay Culkin eating a pizza... for the nerdfighters.

+Mike Aben We were just talking about "orbiting" Minmus at altitudes under 100 m, for the sake of racing along a flat at about 180 m/s, right?

Turns out Cupcake Landers made that into a sport, called Minmussing. And now I want to try it.

1st successful rendezvous and docking mission in KSP 1.x career mode. I now have the very basic core for my first space station in orbit.

The rocket I built gets to orbit with plenty of fuel to spare, as long as you follow an efficient trajectory. It's especially important to build up the horizontal velocity before the 1st stage runs out, because the poodle-powered upper stage doesn't have the muscle to do it on its own.

I suspect this will be my standard model for a space taxi for a bit.

+Geoff N. MechJeb does have tools similar to Kerbal Engineer Redux, so it might be worth your while to get it sooner rather than later. The delta-V calculator alone has been an immense help--aside from spotting weak stages as +Darrell Shannon suggests, I also use it to set an optimum thrust for SRBs, so I can get as close to terminal velocity as I can.
