Asclepius is a small, sandy, and fissured world, possessing a very thin oxygen atmosphere that only gets thick enough for planes to fly (or chutes to work) deep in the canyons!

Meant to be an easy to get to and fun planet to liven up the early game. Science values reflect that, and are low compared to other planets.

Asclepius  Orbital information

  • Asclepius orbits between Kerbin and Duna
  • Has 0° inclination. (same plane as Kerbin)
  • The optimum transfer angle from Kerbin to Asclepius is 23.2 degrees.
  • First departure window happens about 121 days into the stock game.
  • A skilled pilot can get an Asclepius intercept for 970 Δ/v from low kerbin orbit(LKO).
  • Circularization @ 50km into Asclepius orbit = 440 Δ/v (without aerobrake)
  • Ascent from Asclepius sea level to 50 Km orbit = 1355 Δ/v
  • Transfer from 50km Asclepius orbit to Kerbin intercept = 425 Δ/v
  • Orbital velocity @ 50km = 853.2 m/s.
  • Escape velocity = 1337 m/s.

Asclepius Atmosphere information

  • The atmosphere on Asclepius starts at 22000m.
  • Very thin to begin with, but suddenly gets thicker at about 4000m.
  • Contains oxygen, and jet engines will work in the thick parts of the atmosphere.
