General suggestions for SpaceEngine

It looks like Björn Jónsson has created a new high resolution texture for Jupiter combining Cassini images with Juno data from polar regions. If I'm correct this is currently the largest Jupiter realistic texture available right now So It would be interesting to add this to SE main addons maybe. The...

Science and Astronomy Videos

I loved this video where comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko and its dust trailes are tracked for a century. D3LMSDj6GA0 In 1959 67P changed orbit after a very close ecnounter with Jupiter. Numerical simulations show a close aproach distance between 0.040 and 0.020 AU (depending if you are considering o...

Watsisname , Just... excellent, as always. You took some time to do the work and I only can appreciate that (I was going to answer in a very concise and probably not very illustrating manner but waiting for this was a better option). Slowly this thread is becoming a reference for some google search...

The Gaia Mission

Those are amazing news Vladimir! Expanding the ability to load much more star would be just one of the most awesome features ever. 20268 To represent a star, SE need its 3D position, luminosity, and spectral class (SE must know what to render: a main sequence star, red giant or white dwarf). GAIA do...

I was going to write about some Gaia DR2 news but since I'm still quite busy and since today PBS SpaceTime released a very good account for all that is happening right now I will just add the video here :D I will explain some of these and other very interesting things that are currently going on wit...

The Gaia Mission

19943 Could Gaia shed light on the dark matter/energy questions?  I mean, it's also a mapping of the gravity of the galaxy, besides a mapping of the visible stars of the galaxy, since it has much data on the movement of stars. Yes, indeed. For dark matter an ESA press release said: By watching for ...

https://i.imgur.com/ilh7vC0.jpg Today we had a very busy day here at the European Space Agency (ESAC center) in Madrid, as you can imagine. It has been a mind-bending experience for me. I'm very tired right now and tomorrow we would have to work much more, so don't expect any news from my side righ...

19927 So, the question is: who's interested into making a program to request the features from the release, and compile them into SpaceEngine data ? I am not an expert of astronomical data, but i now SQL and python, so i can do the automation part. We have talked a lot in the past about this. I mad...

Science and Astronomy Questions

19638 How sure are you that Earth formed life only once?  Suppose that life on Earth succeeded in developing independently tens, or even thousands of times.  In what ways would this scenario lead to differences from what we observe, and how easily should we expect to be able to find them?  How conf...

19611 This here is also an interesting read. Worlds around F stars would have blue skies, much like ours but more so. Very interesting indeed! 19611 How long would F7-9 stars last? 5-8 billion years? That sounds like a decent amount of time for life to evolve on a planet around them. Not so much I ...

19576 Are hotter brighter suns able to support life as we know it? F stars? A type stars? Even brighter ones like B and O, or subgiants? Well, in the last post, with White dwarfs and Neutron stars I had a fairly optimistic approach but just because we were in a very exotic situation and thus the on...
