* Quite a few fan-made short films exist to showcase briefly just how awesome the game itself is and what ambitious players can dream of accomplishing in it. Shaun Esau's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkDOOsGg-9I Build, Fly, Dream]]" seems to be the quintessential example, and has inspired many others that follow in its footsteps.

* Though most of what he does is usually in the Funny end of the spectrum, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Danny2462 Danny2462]] can, and does, pull off some awesome stunts from time to time. Two of the best ones are probably getting a kerbal to the Mun without a spaceship (it had run out of fuel in orbit) and landing on the Mun on the next flight, all with the most basic parts that a single flight's research can afford you.

* Scott Manley's reusable space program was an epic series that involved multiple space stations across the Kerbin system, as well mining operations on multiple planets/moons. And he kept to his reusable program promise for an extremely long time, until a minor failure caused a part to break.
