Odd trajectory.  Surely that's enough delta-v to reach orbit?  Not that I know anything about the planet...

You should d/l the demo of the game, Kim. Much fun to be had building experimental rockets to try and reach orbit!   :)

I know a dangerous time sink when I see one.  I think it's best left to EldestCub.

Anyway, that looks a fair bit more advanced than the Bristol Rocket Enthusiasts' Altitude, Speed and Trajectory Simulator...

Whatever happened to the likely lads? 

I don't know and, frankly, I don't care.  Just wish 4extra would stop cluttering the airwaves with the drawn-out answer.  >:(

I just mentioned to said Cub that 'some people on the forum have discovered KSP'.

His response is "Awesome!".

He's a fan... although he's just moved on to obsessing about StarMade, which is causing frustration as he can't get it to run on his linux netbook and the graphics card on his brother's WinPC isn't up to it....

Don't tell me the answer!  I'm planning to watch later on the telly. ;)

Are you sure?  I can summarise in a sentence or two, leaving you time to do something useful, like watch paint dry or grass grow.

Some cringeworthy album covers.

There may be a reason why almost all the featured performers are unknowns.  Don't know what was behind he Beatles one (is it a pun on live cuts, as in live versions of songs)?  I remember being surprised at the time but never heard the record - I think it wasn't availabel here, then.

Shame about the Louvin Brothers.  They were great and inspired so many harmony singers, especially The Everly Brothers.  See if you can hear "How's The World Treating You?", written, incidentaly by Chet Atkins and Boudleaux Bryant, which latter co-wrote a lot of The Everlys' hits and "Raining In My Heart".

That was taking it's own sweet time to load up for me, so here's a museum of really bad album covers I found earlier:

6Music are doing a series at the moment called Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? about girl groups. It's really good. And it's on at stupid o'clock so I'm recording it and listening to it later. I recommend it.

Agreed.  I've heard some rubbish on 4extra but that 30 minutes would be better filled with a chorus of quacking ducks.
