Quotes about Universe for loading window

Some intriguing ones: "Man follows only phantoms." Pierre-Simone Laplace "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown" H.P. Lovecraft "We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas...

13024 Wow FastFourierTransform, thanks for your kind words! Sorry for a long delay before reply, I was at a vacations :) Thank you for your detailed responses Vladimir!! And excuse me for the delay. 13024 I am pretty sure that JPL has a data files for hundreds of asteroids which they had modelled t...

SpaceEngine TODO

This is probably even imposible to do realistically. Even there's going to be dispute about space civilizations been a realistic idea in the first place.

13536 Not really happy about the plutonium contamination- plutonium is the longest lasting toxic substance we know of.  I guess that's better than bringing it back here though A-L-E-X , in order to assertain this you need to get in depth with the orders of magnitude involved. How much plutonium we ...

How exactly did you managed to open a new thread without posting even once before? Also hacking the forum?  :D

Recreation Image Dump

There was a thread in the old forum with a lot of recreational images. I'm going to post all the ones that where made there so it doesn't get lost, if all of you are ok with that. Also consider that in the old thread the restriction was not to edit in any way the shots. FastFourierTransform Voyager ...

Density of Planemos

Have a look at this thread from the old forum . Here we talked about rogue planets before those where included in Space Engine. I think there is a lot of usefull information there Making it short: Lower bound: 1,8 Jupiter-mass planemos per main sequence star of the galaxy (that means around 450 bill...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

13124 Oh and the reason I posted 4 x 10 (40) images was because I was trying to show stellar and galactic motion on different scales over long periods of time.  I made videos which would have shortened everything to one post (and are probably more elegant than posting single frames) but couldn't fi...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I suggest adding the next: Retrograde circumbinary objects That's right, we know that in binary systems there is a very compact region around each star where there is stability to harbour planets for geological time-scales, you can't be further from the star or the gravitational pull of the other wo...

TRAPPIST-1

So, this is quite off-topic but I think this is the best place to put it. There is a homeless senegalese inmigrant in Spain that got quite famous some years ago because of a rap song he did where he compared himself with santa claus (refering to the situation when had to run from police with all the...

It could be, at least an early version of it. Have a look:

11844 It will be interesting to see how well this prediction matches up with the reality. Finally we can! You can open both images in separate tabs and see the difference alternating from one another. First, the prediction (color adjusted): http://i.imgur.com/URfW3nD.png http://i.imgur.com/URfW3nD....

Patch 0.9.8.0e

Ups, one more thing; I saw that you have implemented TASS 1.7 for the Saturnian system; the orbital theory that acounts for the perturbations over Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, Hyperion and Iapetus. Is there some solution for the rest of the moons of Saturn? I think is important we c...
