Science and Astronomy Questions

12810 Though supposing that the moon goes a few cm away from earth, wouldn't it get a few cm closer to earth instead? And eventually collide? Exactly right. :)  The Moon's gravity raises tidal bulges on the Earth, and those bulges also pull back on the Moon.  The Earth's rotation drags the bulges a...

What if the moon orbited the earth in the opposite direction?

Bit more accurate representation for how big it would look on the sky, in the sense that the Moon is like a pea held at arms length, and you can't quite see the craters on it.  But you could still (barely) spot the bands on Jupiter. http://i.imgur.com/tnPOD1Q.jpg Other interesting thing to remark o...

Science and Astronomy Questions

That is indeed amazing. I could imagine that in this alternate timeline that Jupiter or whatever the humans on that alternate earth my call it, will take interest in it. Incorporate it into their religions. I can imagine that humanity could possibly reach orbit and beyond more sooner due to enlighte...

Science and Astronomy Questions

What if Jupiter formed in the place of Mars? First that went through my head was that Earth would have much more meteors passing by. You know how Jupiter is just 'pulling' objects more than any other planet in our solar system. So, you want to say if Jupiter switched places with Mars at the beginni...

11110 And also: Does the Moon looks like it travels from west to east during the eclipse because it travels slower than Sun on our sky? Because a lot of people have trouble answering this question. i think I got that right. Well, that's what I would answer if someone asked me. That's correct. :)  B...

Thank you for your answers. Lets say we had a piece of wood, about the width of a 2x4, a lightyear long somehow. Lets say it was in space, and you were in a spacesuit with some form of rocketpack, you turn it on and push the piece of would. Would the entire thing move as you push 1 end? Thatd break ...

Lets say that if we somehow built a very tall tower on the near facing side of the moon, this tower would probably need to be miles high. Would it be possible to get internet connection on the Moon?

Why are there so much carbon dioxide on life planets?

This is because of the way the algorithm that generates the atmospheres is. Atmospheres in space engine are still a new thing and I won't be surprised if it is changed in the future. But youve also gotta keep in mind that these are alien worlds, to them Earth's atmosphere would be poisonous, not eve...

10957 Moon has almost 0 Axial tilt. You would just see a thin line across the sky and never see much of the disk.  But what if you add some really big rings. Like you did to Mercury adding Saturn rings. Or even some larger rings that could be more visible in the sky. :) If that was the case we woul...

Thanks for the images! :) I don't have some requests right now. Maybe I will find some later. But, as I am writing this, I will use this chance for one more. What would it look like on our Moon? And if it is just big, try also using some smaller rings. And what would it look like from Earth? I did ...

Wow, good demonstation! :D But, if you add rings much further away, like those that Saturn has, what would it look like? And I also added rings like from Saturn in Universe Sandbox 2 and balance lasted in less than a month as I said in earlier post  :shock: And then it would deforme in some shapes ...

Science and Astronomy Questions

You imagine well. Water and ice rings would just melt for a week probably. Maybe for even few days. As you said, rocky rings could work. But, maybe they would work for even longer than just 2 weeks. Maybe for one month before being so unstable that they wouldn't even have a normal orbit.  And I hav...
