Science and Astronomy Questions

36247 Could the universe then conceivably be a brain for some much higher being? That's a cool idea, but the speed of light limit would make any transmission between the computational elements of this brain so slow that not even a single though could be made. Brains need to be compact, that's almos...

36204 Wow, nice work, and congratulations with a new discovery! Thank you Vlad :D 36204 I am still far from implementing of a whole GAIA catalog support. Athough I think that SE will not use all 2 billion stars, because it can render only stars with a good parallax, luminocity and color data. Yes, ...

36201 wow the first video was made in space engine?  how? I loaded our entire dataset as an addon in SpaceEngine, making sure that all stars had unrealistically low magnitudes (so they could be seen from intergalactic distances in the animation). I turned of procedural generation of stars and erase...

So, a few weeks ago we published a research paper about a new map of the Solar Neighbourhood using OB stars (which is the most precise to date as it seems) using data from the Gaia mission (don't worry I will make an addon for our cataog in summer when we release the second iteration of this researc...

Science and Astronomy Videos

Recently a few YouTube science videos have been released that have some outstanding visual and conceptual beauty. Some of the best ones I've ever seen in my life. The first one is about slime mold simulation. Is from a programmed I follow but there's no need to understand the code here, just the bas...

The Crab Nebula has now been mapped in 3D. It would make for a nice addition to SE.

Astrobiology Poll

35987 I thought I would just ignore this recent discussion but I can't resist anymore: If it's so hard to normalise a scale to whatever personal preference, the poll must be lacking a question about terrestial intelligent life. :lol: :lol: :lol: 35982 You do not get to raise a fuss about things you...

Astrobiology Poll

35974 This will be a picture of how pop-culture taught people to think and they have no knowledge, they have Star Wars and reptilian conspiracy stuff instead. This is exactly what I'm trying to learn here. What people (with their socio-cultural context) expect. You don't need to express yourself in...

Astrobiology Poll

35972 The wording of the survey with all this indistinct testing is seen to me as overloaded, meaningless and collapsing under its own weight. Roy, the idea here is not to have an accurate representation of what each one of us thinks really but to have a Jelly Beans in a Jar kind of poll, a crowd w...

Asteroids, meteors, and meteorites

35944 Maybe some parts of the planet are more favorable for these?  Has any research been done into that I wonder? A lot of research indeed and everything seems to corroborate that they indeed fall everywhere on Earth. Since the fall of a meteor doesn't depend on the particular point of Earth's rot...

What and outstanding job Vladimir. This code is a piece of art. There are many things that might be of interest here that I don't know where to start. Kudos to you and the entire SE team.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

35922 I remember talking to Vlad about the H-R diagram and he liked the idea of including a small H-R diagram for stars in the field of view and when you mouse over individual stars it would highlight its position on the diagram and you could also mouse over a speck on the diagram and it would high...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

35838 In my opinion, respecting what the HR diagram tells us on the evolution of the star is quite imporant. It would greatly improve the consistency of the SE universe. It would indeed, but there are several reasons why this is currently an outstanding scientific endevour. It would result in publi...

Programing this is a truly amazing feat. Thank you, as always, for such an incredible job. I'm concerned with the mutual shadowing of the different objects in the rings. That might be a fundamental feature of such scenes in real life, but possibly a CPU killer and an imposible programing goal. I Hop...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

I now see that most of the points addressed by Captain Disilussion and Phil Plait are taken from this thread: https://www.metabunk.org/threads/fake-ufos-casting-shadows-on-the-moon-ovni-sur-la-lune-2020-03-26.11185/ In my opinion the sudden stop of the atmospheric perturbations is enough to end this...
