This kerbal space program papercraft is designed by misterxman. The Command Pod Mk1houses the Kerbal crew during their mission. At least one is required to build any kind of rocket.
Generally placed at the top of the rocket, the aim of the game is to get your crew into space and land them safely again back on the surface of Kerbin.
You cannot create a launch-able rocket without the original command module, created after opening the VAB at this juncture; due to the fact that it creates the first stage. Any command module bought after, however, can be deleted or sold. This was before .12, but in .12 and later, you can pick-a-pod.
