How do I get to Mars in Kerbal Space Program?

  1. Enter Kerbin orbit (using mechjeb)
  2. Do long burn to enter Mun orbit (using mechjeb)
  3. When enter Mun SOI, do a \’whip around\’ the Mun and fling into escape trajectory.
  4. When at the correct Mars altitude then burn so that you\’re in an orbit around the sun, at an altitude similar to Mars.

Is Duna Mars?

Duna is the fourth planet from Kerbol and the fourth-largest planet. It is the Mars analog for Kerbal Space Program. It has one tidally-locked and large natural satellite, the moon Ike.

How much Delta V do you need for Duna and back?

You will need at least 2000ms Delta-V for the orbit and return, you can test this by seeing if your lander is **almost** capable of reaching Kerbin orbit by itself.

How much fuel is needed for Mars and back?

First there is the 66,770 gallons of liquid hydrogen fuel, 19,359 gallons of liquid oxygen, 260,000 gallons of liquid hydrogen fuel, 80,000 gallons of liquid oxygen, 318,000 gallons of liquid oxygen, and 203,400 gallons of kerosene fuel. This amount of fuel could possibly even triple or quadruple to go to Mars.

How do you go interplanetary in KSP?

To go to the inner planets (Eve, Moho), put your maneuver node about ~45 degrees past sunrise. Pull the prograde vector in your maneuver until the dotted yellow line crosses the orbit of your target planet (you might have to zoom out).

What is the easiest planet to land on KSP?

Duna is often the easiest planet to achieve encounters because of a low orbital inclination.

Does Ike have an atmosphere?

Ike is a moon and the only natural satellite of Duna. Ike has steep, rocky slopes and no atmosphere.

How much DV do you need to get to Duna?

With proper aerobraking, a round trip from Kerbin to Duna’s orbit and back requires roughly 1700 m/s of delta-v, less than a round trip to any other planet. Duna is often the easiest planet to encounter because its orbital inclination is low.

Can you walk on Mars without a spacesuit?

The atmospheric pressure on Mars varies with elevation and seasons, but there is not enough pressure to sustain life without a pressure suit.

Can you make rocket fuel on Mars?

Microbes could help future Mars explorers make rocket fuel and oxygen on the Red Planet. Future Mars astronauts could make rocket fuel on the Red Planet using air, water and sunlight, a new study finds. The technology could fuel the astronauts’ flights back to Earth.
