You read Elon Musk's Twitter too?

For a while now, I've been considering making some kind of High Frontier tutorial - whether this is a run through of the rules, a (basic!) run through of the physics (what hohmann transfers are all about, and how this applies to pink circles, brachistochrone curves, why aerobraking is important, etc.) or some combination of the two, I'm not sure.

I do have a vague plan, but there's little point in doing anything before I have my hands on the 3rd edition.

Oh yes, but I meant a video. I have a vague idea about illustrating bits of it with KSP (and appropriate parts), since there's a difference between seeing "radiators" and understanding quite how large high powered radiators would have to be, and translating burn spaces into a visual hohmann transfer would seem to be fairly useful- this stuff is reasonably esoteric for space nerds, even, since you're talking about mostly hypothetical stuff.
