I can’t seem to get my rocket into orbit. How do you do it?

Games Guru: First, you have to fly over 70,000m to achieve orbit. Also:
1. Launch straight up until you achieve 10km
2. Adjust Pitch to 45° east. The engines should stay on — until your Apoapsis is above 70km
3. Adjust your pitch to horizontal shortly before you reach the Apoapsis
4. Burn at Apoapsis until your Periapsis is above 70km

    Actually, going straight up will decrease the efficiency of your orbit. You want to do a 90° gravity turn by the time you hit 80,000m. Think of it as an arc though, not a sudden turn. Arc your way to victory!

    I have ksp and so many youtubers do it and one tip that i learned was that one of the most efficient ways to get to the mun is use the asparagus form which is putting liquid fuel engines in a formation (use the #5 symmetry) and keep building out. It is a great way to get to far away places.:)
