The starting tech tree, with the first tech unlocked.
The science archives of the facility. Wernher von Kerman can be seen.

The Research and Development Facility is a structure added in version 0.22. The building is used to unlock new parts in the technology tree in career mode. Unlocking parts requires science. The facility contains multiple buildings, but it is not possible to go inside each individual building. The R&D facility is the largest building in the KSC.

Additional to the technology tree it is possible to browse through the archive of already executed scientific experiments. There are several filters available to limit it only to a specific body, situation, biome or experiment.

Secondary buildings

The Research and Development Facility one of two structures containing multiple buildings, along with the tracking station. The R&D facility has a telescope and contains a structure of 3 cylinder tanks containing an unknown substance. Several barracks can be found on-site, as well an overhanging passageway between two buildings. There are three main buildings, which are all inter-connected.


If a player tries to enter the R&D facility in sandbox mode, a message will appear saying "The research and development facility is closed".
