Kerbal Space Program 'Asteroid Redirect' update hits

In what must be one of the greatest gaming collaborations in history, Squad and NASA (yes, the real NASA) have worked together to bring us the 'Asteroid Redirect Mission' patch for madcap launch-em-up Kerbal Space Program.

The update adds a veritable sea of space rocks to be found in orbit, along with new parts to try and capture them with. The new equipment is influenced by real-life NASA gear, but won't cost anywhere near as much - fortunate, since you'll probably spend most of your time accidentally flying it into asteroids.

Other additions include a much-requested quicksave feature, and a new joint system for sturdier building. Theoretically.

The update is live now for all owners of Kerbal Space Program.
