General suggestions for SpaceEngine

One other thing I was wondering about, does SE account for proper motions of stars and planets through the years? So let's say I wanted to see what the stars and planets look like from Earth in, say, 1 million AD (or BC), could I get a fairly accurate approximation? Or will SE be able to do so once...

UFO Sightings and Possible Explanations

I also have one UFO story to share here, but I will see if I can find more info for it since it isn't mine. But, I can share one short sighting. So, it happened many years ago in the early August, probably 2nd. I was coming back from some event that was happening there every year and it was evening...

Whoops! I thought black dwarfs were 100% confirmed! Actually you can't confirm something that doesn't exists because it didn't had time to form yet.  :) We imagine the universe as something that was there by a lot of time, but 13.7 billion years are still relatively a small amount of time compared ...

Astrophotography

Today's partial lunar eclipse from Ostrava, Czech Republic. It's so sad that I've noticed it but I didn't care about it since I though it was just covered by clouds. Media should definitely talk more about these things, I know it happens very often to see a lunar eclipse before a solar eclipse but ...

Can my PC run Space Engine?

Up in space it's usually in the range 10-15, unless you get close to some planet Weird. My old card was an ATI Radeon HD 4650 that is just slightly better but I had 30-40 fps in space, maybe it's the "new" star rendering that is very heavy. Are you sure you didn't deactivate galaxy/nebula...

No matter how fast you go, c is still faster, by exactly c!  This is weird but true, and for it to be true other weird things must also be true, like the relativity of time and space. The weird part of it is that logic would say "so if I'm travelling at 0.9 c but I'm considered at rest so c is...

And not just electromagnetic signals, but any conceivable signal. msVuCEs8Ydo Quite hard to understand because of my poor english, but I kind of get what he meant. Very very interesting! I always considered "c" velocity as a consequence of space-time "friction", as much as you r...

Science and Astronomy Questions

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? Just if you deactivate your bluetooth. You can already have internet connection on the Moon, in the ...

What about his water? I think in the "planet video" he used a water that is very similar to the one SE actually use. If you mean that wonderful water with waves and stuff of the other videos it's probably very complicated to be implement in SE, also because it requires real-time reflectio...

Photoshoped Image Dump

This is an old photoshop of mine, I was showing how would SE look if it had 3d clouds.  :)

I don't have the original image though, and it is very unrealistic now that I see it again.

Idea about new info table (photoshop mokeup): new into mokeup.png Info table becomes a window, which is fully transparent (invisible) in normal mode, showing only text, but appears when user hover mouse cursor over it. It could have an expand/collapse buttons, to show more/less detailed description...

Finding clear evidence of an exomoon would be amazing. Our instruments and methods are not powerful enough though, there is too much measurement uncertainty to say for sure it's not an artifact...

Could we hope to directly observe one of those with better cameras?

Advertising SE?

For that we need new content that is attractive enough to attract a steady amount of players into SE which a portion of could make mods to maintain a large and steady community- like with Minecraft. Problem is the rate of updates, which are adversely affected by the rate of donations. Yeah, you're ...
