is a game where the players create and manage their own space program. Build spacecraft, fly them, and try to help the Kerbals to fulfill their ultimate mission of conquering space.

They just posted their 35th program. Here it is on mp3:
– Oh, Eve. You cruel temptress! It’s our progress in the game.
– Your letters and the latest Kerbal news in this week’s Mission Briefing
– Is the Moon a star? Yes, someone on TV is actually confused about that!
