What do you think about the super flare of the star Proxima Centauri?

good points, indeed active flare stars are a problem, but i think that if proxima b had a magnetic field stronger than earth, those flares wouldn't be much of a problem

How do you think we can get to Proxima b?

Soo.. the other day I read that the Alpha Centauri system might have several exoplanets apart from Proxima b.. so I looked for info about the Starshot project and found out that the team launched in July a 3.5 x 3.5cm satellite weighing 4 grams.. this encourages me to believe that the project can a...

alfa015, if you're in tracking mode, you can still use the middle mouse button (Scroll Wheel Button) to change your view

thanks for your answer, the scroll wheel button just changes my speed

Definitely interesting, but I would not call it a "video game"...

EVE Online is a videogame, specifically a well-known sci-fi MMORPG. This seems to be just a little part that basically amounts to a minigame.
