Last week at PAX, we had the opportunity to speak with the creators of Kerbal Space Program about the genesis of the fascinating simulation. During the conversation, we learned a little bit about what's coming in the next update. Today, the team at Squad has released a preview video.

The .22 update will introduce research and development, a key component of KSP's campaign mode. Instead of launching players into a sea of parts, the new game type will streamline progress using a science and tech tree. By collecting data and conducting experiments, players will be able to expend "science" as a currency to unlock new parts. 

Additionally, .22 will introduce a new way to save smaller builds and move them between vertical and horizontal hangars. This will speed up the experimentation process, which should terrify the little green men (and women).

The new update will be coming soon.
