I did the stationary calculation on this site, imputing the mass of the planet, and trial and error on the orbital radi. It is untested, so it might be wrong. (3185,5 km orbit gave the same ammount of seconds the plant day is, minus the radi' of the planet). It seems that the dunasync orbit is exactly the same as kerbins :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Djnekkid (talkcontribs)

Duna Gravity borked.

Someone, fix the Gravitational Parameter!

It's throwing all my calculations out XD Kahlzun (talk) 23:36, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

It looks like it was listed in km²/s³, even though the shown units are m²/s³? It's fixed now. UmbralRaptor (talk) 05:57, 17 October 2012 (UTC)


it appears like the infobox is broken. it shows weird values for a lot of parameters. can somebody please fix this? Koeopschoenen (talk) 04:24, 24 April 2014 (CDT)

Thank you, all bodies with atmospheres had this problem, except Kerbin. — xZise [talk] 05:22, 24 April 2014 (CDT)

Is this an Easter Egg?

When you take a surface sample of Duna from it's midlands, it says this: Unable to satisfy your Curiosity, you attempt to drill in the rock with your tool. You're thinking it would be a lot easier if you had some kind of pulsating drill thing on a robotic arm.

Notice how curiosity is capitalized? I think it means the rover. And the pulsating drill thing on a robotic arm also references to the rover? -------Mushroomian, 935 AM ET, 3/8/2015

Considering there is already the mast of Curiosity seen. There is actually a typo and it's “Curiousity” but I also think they mean the rover. If you want to add it, use list of easter eggs. — xZise [talk] 09:39, 9 March 2015 (CDT)
Oh and I'd appreciate if you could sign using four tildes (usually preceded by two dashes) like --~~~~. This ensures that it's formatted the same way (it might be obvious to you that 3/8/2015 is for you in the past and not in the future but that is not universally true). — xZise [talk] 09:59, 9 March 2015 (CDT)

Observation of Ike

retcon last statement: removing "observation of Ike"

replace with "I can't make that image smaller". Mr. Spink talkcontribs 16:17, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Atmosphere scale height

What is the source for the values for scale height for this and other planets? It's given here as 5700 metres, but that matches the data in the table pretty badly at most altitudes (reasonably close around 10km it seems). The page does note that since v1.0 the scale height varies with altitude, so perhaps (if scale heights aren't simply removed) the region where the curve matches the stated scale height should be made clear? I guess perhaps the scale height as a concept predates the v1.0 change, so maybe there's a good case for just removing it entirely. Neilski (talk) 19:00, 5 January 2019 (UTC)


It's trivial and I'd just fix it myself, but I can't figure out how to edit the info box on the right side. The possessive of "body" is "body's" - not "bodies". "Bodies" is the plural. Rmaine (talk) 16:56, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

You can edit this in Template:Infobox/Body/Dict. Thanks for the notice, this is fixed now and should soon show correctly. --ArnePeirs (talk) 19:57, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

Gallery Update

The screenshots from early versions of the game seem out of place, such as the old heightmap and the picture of a deep pit on Duna. This is probably relevant for articles of other bodies too. I think these old screenshots should be removed and replaced with more recent screenshots. Screenshots could also be improved with better lighting (Ambient light boost), framing (camera pan and FOV using middle-mouse-button), and content (no visible craft, focus on diverse views from Duna's surface or orbit). Also, most of the bodies have updated surface textures now, so I think screenshots should include that. Making updated screenshots would probably be a team effort. --Electrollama (talk) 18:39, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
