It's not rocket science! Wait a second - yes, it is. KerbalEdu lets players build and fly beautifully complicated ships, but if they want to get off the ground, they had better start doing the math.


Closely entwined with calculating angles and fuel capacities are the physical realities of space travel. From Newtonian laws to high-level astrophysics, KerbalEdu covers an impressively broad curriculum.


KerbalEdu is not a game for those who fear failure. Success calls for an true rocket engineer's mindset, and iterative design is a concept students will get familiar far before they even leave orbit.
