* {{DuctTapeforEverything}}: EAS-4 Strut Connector - basically KSP equivalent of duct tape. This is the only thing that holds most rockets from falling apart.

*** Space shuttles are usually even harder to design and fly than regular old space plane VTOLS. However unlike space planes, parts are typically expended launching them.

** The Kerbal solar system and its planets are around 1/10 the size of the real ones. This would make many aspects of rocket design a lot easier, except that Kerbal rocket components tend to be less capable than real ones to compensate. For example, Kerbal fuel tanks have a much higher ratio of dry mass to fuel mass, while Kerbal engines have lower thrust to weight ratios. The main net effect is to save the player time. It takes 2-3 minutes to guide a rocket to orbit, compared to 10-20 minutes for a real one. Since you'll probably be re-doing your launches over and over until you can figure out what's causing those pesky explosions, it's a welcome respite.

* NoodleImplements: Stuck in space with no fuel, [[DramaticSpaceDrifting so tantalisingly close to being able to return home]]? Why not ''literally get out and push''? Just take an EVA, and push your spacecraft in the direction you want! You can get an unlimited amount of delta-V like this, if you could be bothered constantly getting in and out of the ship to replenish your EVA fuel (plus, this process is extremely slow).
