** Former Astronaut Ed Lu played the game with Scott Manley, [[IDontKnowMortalKombat Ed's first flight crashed in less than 30 seconds, the second got into space, but not into orbit.]]]] Despite not making it to orbit in-game, he still described it as "fun to play", which is pretty fair praise, too.

* NintendoHard: The game is pretty harsh and unforgiving if you don't know what you're doing. And even if you do, a single mishap can ruin that epic Jool mission you poured hours into.

* NintendoHard: The game is pretty harsh and unforgiving if you don't know what you're doing. And even if doing; most new players take a while to achieve their first orbit, partly because of [[https://what-if.xkcd.com/58/ common misconceptions about how real rockets reach orbit]] (you don't need to go up very far, but you do, need a tremendous amount of ''horizontal'' velocity). Even if you've mastered the game, a single mishap can ruin that epic Jool mission you poured hours into.

** Update 1.05 overhauled how buoyancy is treated in the game making it possible for some parts and even entire craft to sink. It is possible to build submarines and underwater bases, there are even contracts a records for them.

* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Science Kerbals have no specialization, they are all experts in generic [[HollywoodScience Science]]! They can clean out and refurbish otherwise expendable experiment modules, enhance the degree of science gained from experiments, and staff laboratory modules to conduct longer-term research. ** Then again they might have the right idea, since taking notes about space travel and observing "mystery goop" somehow contributes to the development of rockets.

* AcePilot: Pilot Kerbals can enhance the control of vessels, allowing them to point to particular vectors and enhancing their existing stability systems, getting that much more mobility out of craft. The more experienced they are, the better they get.

The more experienced they are, the better they get. Although, once you unlock the probe cores that can do everything a veteran pilot can, they become somewhat obsolete.

** The 1.05 update made water, while not soft, at least soft''er'', by giving the simulation a new buoyancy model. Craft that are properly shaped and hit the water at the right angle can certainly survive at velocities that might shatter less aquadynamic designs. Even seaplanes are viable if built right!
