Ted "Piece of Shit" Kerman is a Kerbal Astronaut who qualified for the Viking Space Program in late 2014/early 2015. His earliest mission was the J.E.R.K.I.T Program where he tested the prototype SSTO Shuttle, but decided to waste billions of Robert's funding for the project when he clibed into the escape module and detached the Shuttle and crashed it into the VAB. This earned him the title "Piece of Shit" by Robert. Ted and Bob share a close relationship, being buddies after the J.E.R.K.I.T Crash. At the sight of the crash, Bob violently attacked Ted before agreeing to leave him alone.
