The One Where Wonderduck Weeps Uncontrollably...

...but in a good way!  As you may remember, I went through a phase there where I was playing Kerbal Space Program pretty much constantly.  Rest assured that I still am, for I have yet to give up on rescuing Bill Kerman from (ahem) Mun Base I.  Anyway, I'm a member of the KSP subreddit over at Reddit.com, and let me tell you, they're totally insane over there... if there's a group that's coming up with more inventive ways to terminate flights to debris, I don't know about it!

However, every now and again, someone comes up with something truly beautiful.  If you've played the game, you know the KSP Theme... after all, it plays the moment the game boots up!  It's lovely, if you like snare drums, but I always thought it could be better.  How?  Now you're asking me for details that I can't provide... but it could be better!  Then someone proved me right:

The first time I heard this, I broke into tears at 0:21... or when Kerbol first comes into view in this video.  It had been a bad day, I was tired and pissy, and then... this.  It was glorious.

I wish there was some way to add it into the game... and there's every chance that if the folks at Squad like it, it'll end up there eventually.  They're kinda awesome like that.

I want some pancakes.

1 This is awesome, too: A rocket built out of a slinky, I guess.

2 A friend of mine apparently managed to build a space station so large, it kills the game. :-(  I haven't played in a while, but then, I haven't played anything in a while.
