What is KSP? "The game places the player in control of a nascent space program operated by Kerbals, a race of small green humanoids, who have constructed a fully furnished and functional spaceport (Kerbal Space Center, or KSC) on their homeworld Kerbin. What they lack in engineering expertise and common sense they more than make up for in enthusiasm and willingness to furnish any materials needed to become a spacefaringcivilization, up to and including a seemingly endless stream of volunteers for manned space missions."
