* 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).

** While you can't do it with just a Kerbal anymore, you can still make craft that that have the Kerbal reenter without a pod. All you need is a heat shield, a motor, a parachute, and a chair.

* HumanResources: The "Kethane" GameMod comes with the KE-WAITNONOSTOP-01 Kerbal Unreconstitutionator, which can recycle Kerbal astroanuts into kethane (to refine into fuel)



Due to the vast community, there are plenty of mods that greatly changed how the game function from stock. Listed below are some examples:

* InterplanetaryVoyage: Some mods, such as KSP-Interstellar mod, added advanced thrusters and even Alcubierre Drive -- yet they are still based on theoratical physics instead of any science fiction science, and may require even more resource management just to wrap to a different planet.

* EscapePod: doable to various degrees, but can easily result in dead weight. Implemented as a mod by Umbra Space Industries: the [[FunWithAcronyms Deployable Emergency Reentry Pod]] is an inflatable one-man shelter atop a miniature propulsion block. It's still less insane than the real-life General Electrics [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOOSE Manned Orbital Operations Safety Equipment]].

It's still less insane than the real-life General Electrics [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOOSE Manned Orbital Operations Safety Equipment]].



* OrionDrive: Via a GameMod [[http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/sealofapproval.php#id--Computer_Simulation--Kerbal_Space_Program--Orion_nuclear_pulse made by]] the webmaster of the hard science website ''Atomic Rockets''. In true Kerbal fashion, the first test fire of the drive caused the command module to go flying off the top of the ship like a cork on a wine bottle.

* ExpospeakGag: A few of these have crawled into the fan vocabulary from [[http://rocketry.wordpress.com/2011/11/13/rocketry-euphemisms/ real-world rocketry]], notably "rapid unplanned disassembly"[[labelnote:Translation]]The rocket suddenly breaks up in mid-flight, usually because something exploded[[/labelnote]] and "lithobraking."[[labelnote:Translation]]The rocket "brakes" by hitting the ground[[/labelnote]] The latter [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithobraking is a legitimate landing technique]] that [[http://i39.tinypic.com/ofdb8.gif can be used in-game successfully]], but most of the time the term's used in the ironic sense.
