Description

A self-deploying hexagonal space station, attached to a launch vehicle. The space station spins in order to simulate gravity, exept for a stationary center section where the solar panels and a docking port are mounted. The idea for the deployment mechanism came from an old NASA study.

How to use: Make sure that you have Infernal Robotics installed, and launch the rocket. There is plenty of extra fuel so getting into low kerbin orbit should be relatively easy.

To deploy:

  • Discard the second stage by staging once.
  • Hold down 1 until the telescoping spokes are fully extended and movement stops.
  • Hold down 2 until the station assumes its final form and movement stops.
  • Press 3 once. This activates the separatrons which spin up the station, deploys the antennas and deploys the solar panels.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.4.
