Cannon fodder, all necessary for the glory of Kerbin.

Edit: Typo

I don't know how to achieve orbit around Kerbin.

They tend to go flying off into orbit around the sun.

Erm launch then keep a stable throttle usually around 250 km/s and then aim for a good height which is around 10 km ish.

Then slowly tilt towards the the horizon, in the direction of the planet's rotation. This is usually the direction that space planes take off from on the runway thingy.
Then by around 30 KM, you should be flying at at least 45 degrees ish
and after 50 KM, you should be flying at at least 20 degrees ish

ALWAYS look at the damn map

Once reach an apoapsis of 75 km or higher, cut your engines. If you see that your apoapsis is rapidly falling, apply a little power to keep it up a bit.
Wait till you reach the apoapsis (Watch in the map view, speed up helps a bit)

You should be pointed slightly above the horizon, when you reach the apoapsis.

Once you're at the apoapsis, start your engines up again.

If you are going past your apoapsis, point your ship higher up to bring it back to you, if the apoapsis is moving ahead of you, point your ship downwards until you start to catch up.

Stay on the apoapsis like this until you raise your periapsis to 75 kmish . You'll be able to tell when the PE and AP markers suddenly flip around.... quite violently.

If they aren't perfect it really doesn't matter... you just need a circumference a good distance from Kerbin.


Then boom goes the dynamite, you got a baby... uhh orbit.

I tried very hard to understand what you said and apply it to the game.

But I must say that I studied history in college, not rocket surgery.

Put the thing in space and then hope it doesn't explode.

This guy is the best...

also rocket surgery is serious business.
