Lawnchairs in Space!

You likely are aware that I’m a fan of the Kerbal Space Pro­gram, a very cool and fun way to safely explore the pro­cess of design­ing, build­ing, launch­ing, nav­ig­at­ing and land­ing space­craft. Yep, cool and safe.

Totally unlike real­ity. Earli­er today I stumbled across this video that, while hos­ted by a Kerbal Space Pro­gram fan, goes into a lot of detail about LESS, the Lun­ar Escape Sys­tems.

Lawn­chairs + Rock­ets. That’s it! No com­puter. Nav­ig­a­tion handled by the Mark I Eye­ball and stop­watches.

Wow.
