DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the scientists and engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab are self-confessed obsessed players of Kerbal Space Program? At the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo, casually known as the E3 Expo, they said that for them, the appeal of the game comes from the lack of consequences and responsibility. Within the game, players can create their own rocket ships without thinking about resources such as time and money. In the game, they can try out ideas that they would never try in real life because of the possible consequences. Elon Musk, a self-taught rocket scientist and the founder of SpaceX, has also announced his love for the space flight simulation game.
The game is not a perfectly accurate simulation, but the physics behind the game has been lauded for being scientifically correct. The game employs Newtonian mechanics and Keplerian laws for orbits and maneuvers. The inaccuracies in the game, such as the scale of the solar system, are the result of the developer’s considerations for making the game not too highly technical and the limitations in computing power of the players’ computers. There are also user-created mods for the game to add new ships, new parts, new functionalities that make the game more entertaining to play.
