The “Mohole” is a hole located at the north pole of Moho. When the game first came out, it was caused by a terrain glitch, although anomalous forces around it would cause vehicles to accelerate toward it. Eventually, it was given its own dedicated biome and became a permanent part of the game.



On Vall, there is a stone formation at that resembles Stonehenge.


Crashed UFOs

You can find a crashed UFO on the northern ice cap of Kerbin. There is also one on the Mun.


Nye Island

The “Nye Island” station might be a reference to Bill Nye.



If you destroy a level 3 Astronaut Complex, you’ll be able to see a toilet in the rubble.


Tut-Un Jeb-Ahn

There is a temple/pyramid located on Kerbin. If you crash into it, you will see that its name is Tut-Un Jeb-Ahn.


Neil Armstrong Memorial

If you go to the Mun, you can find a memorial to astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, who died in 2012.


Face on Mars

On Duna, there is a giant Kerbal face in the sand. This is most likely a reference to the “Face on Mars,” a hill on Mars that resembles a face in certain images.


Sagan Sea

The “Sagan Sea” biome on Laythe might be a reference to scientist and author Carl Sagan.
