Product description

This ground-deployed sensor contains very delicate, sophisticated accelerometers meant to detect and analyze the precisely calibrated seismic shock waves generated by smashing rocket parts at high speed into whatever planet or moon it happens to be sitting on.

Note: Please allow trained Scientists to deploy for best results. Needs a deployed power unit & central station to operate.

This is the only deployable science module which doesn't send science points through time. Instead, it works by impacting objects near the seismometer.

Scientist bonus/malus

The science points multiplier formula is as follows: base value of the module (1) · kerbal level multiplier · body surface science multiplier

The table for the kerbal multiplier value is the following:

Level Value
Not scientist 0.05
Level 0 0.25
Level 1 0.35
Level 2 0.45
Level 3 0.60
Level 4 0.80
Level 5 1.00

For example a level 3 scientist deploying a seismometer experiment on Mun gives 1 · 0.60 · 4 = 2.4 science points multiplier
