Start is the first node in the tech tree, and the only stage 1 node on the tree. It is the node the player starts with, and includes seven basic parts, most of which are essential to play the game. This node doesn't need to be developed.

Available Research

There is only one tech node that directly require this one:


The Mk1 Command Pod is the only essential part required to start the game. This is because the second tech tree node, Basic Rocketry, only costs 5 Science, and that can easily be supplied by making Crew Reports, EVA Reports and collect Surface Samples. However, if the player wants to gain more science, using these starter parts, and explosive decoupling, the player can make an orbital or sub-orbital rocket and gain more science from space, using the Communotron 16 to transmit excess data.
