The Kerbal podcast for the Kerbal Space Program

The Kerbal Space Program

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.

Although inhabited by comic Kerbal characters, the underlying physics of the rockets and spacecraft is very realistic and accurate. (See the recent TMRO interview with Scott Manley who has created numerous tutorial videos for KSP.)

The KSP is becoming increasingly popular and has its own Kerbal Podcast. (It’s also available on YouTube.)


They just posted their 35th program. Here it is on mp3:

Program topics:

– 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!
