About Kerbal Space Program
Create your own spacecraft, launch it into space to explore the galaxy, and visit a vast amount of planets; assuming you can get it off the ground! Once you’ve made it to deep space, KSP lets you capture asteroids, launch mining programs to find resources across the furthest reaches of the solar system and build space stations around planets you discover.
Kerbal Space Program offers three game modes:
In Sandbox, where you’re free to build anything your imagination can come up with;
Science Mode lets you perform scientific experiments and advance the knowledge of Kerbals to unlock new technologies;
Career Mode, places you in control of every aspect of the space program including crew management, reputation building, as well as embarking on side missions called ‘contracts’ to earn funds and upgrade your space center facilities.
