The Aerodynamic Nose Cone is a cap that fits to the front of an aircraft or rocket.

Usage

This nosecone has a lower drag coefficient than most parts, potentially making rockets more stable. However, with KSP's current drag model nosecones only add to a craft's mass and drag, essentially making them useless. It still looks good, though.

Product description

Aerodynamic, lightweight and mostly non-explosive. As a reminder to all personnel operating nearby, this part is really sharp and it'd probably hurt if you fell on it.
