While it's cool they're remaking a classic, I have to say this pales in comparison to Kerbal Space Program. This makes no mention of actually designing and flying the rockets yourself, or any sort of flight simulation involved as what is a core feature of KSP. KSP will also have the management side of things too before the game is officially launched.

Still I suppose this is cool if you're really into historical management sims.

Does Kerbal Space Program actually let you do anything besides build a rocket and launch it? This game sounds like a huge sim that involves building launch facilities, building up scientists, research and tech trees, etc. KSP seems like a one-trick-pony compared to this. It's a really nice pony, granted, but it's a limited pony.

Well, to start KSP is in alpha. And yes there is more to it than that. When it was in earlier alphas that would have been a good description of the game, but isn't any longer.
I would also say KSP just sounds more interesting in terms of what they want the game to be when its a finished project. Trying to make it to another star system sounds exciting and daunting. The end-point on this game is Mars, and there are no mention of space stations...the scope seems a bit smaller

It doesn't sound like this game won't be doing anything that kerbal already doesn't do (or is planned to do.) Take into account that Kerbal allows for modding, (It remains to be seen if this game will allow for modding.) and I think it definitely gives it a leg up.

IF it handles physics better it might have something going for it. Not that KSP does a terrible job, but its not perfect!

Edit: This might end up being more 'authentic' but KSP (I think anyway) will end up being the better game, and is still an excellent sim. Sounds like its been a while since you've checked out KSP, I suggest you give it another look-over.
