The Cupola Module's main purpose is to provide a good outside view from space stations or bases. It is heavier and larger than the other command pods and cockpits which have a crew capacity of one, while still being lighter than parts with higher crew capacities. It is also quite fragile, has higher drag than most other parts, and has a relatively high energy capacity.
|“|| The PPD-12 was developed to provide a high visibility control room for orbital stations, and a place for thoughtful Kerbals to contemplate the beauty of the cosmos.
