Kerbal Space Odyssey

Kerbal Space Program is a space program simulator by an indie developer currently in alpha state that allows you to construct rockets from parts, Spore style, and then send that craft to a bold mission into space to tumble, break and crash in flames under accurately simulated orbital mechanics.
Its brave crew, a trio of green muppet aliens that react to the circumstances and the stress of space flight, each in their own way.


This piece was done as a speedpaint inspired by these intrepid Kerbalnauts and obviously a bit of an homage to one of the more famous scenes in science fiction cinema. The overwhelmingly positive feedback it's gotten prompted me to clean it up a little and refine the framing. As of Version 0.8.5, it is visible in the game as a loading screen.

Ah yes, fond memories. Haven't touched the game in a while now, but this is the loading screen that always pops up every time I load :)

Are you happy that it's now a loading screen for this game? Because it makes me think of a scene near the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
