Intergalactic stars!

14699 I assume we can't move time forward and see the hypervelocity stars zooming away can we? A-L-E-X , as always, no. We have discussed about this in the work in progress thread and in the Gaia mission thread several times (we = you and me). There is no stellar motion implemented in the code of S...

Qr Bbpost I do not really like intergalactic stars. I think that there is something missing in them

Please expand your idea. Why you don't like them? And why does that matter considering SE has to be realistic and not another representation of our missconceptions?

So, since its the Sputnik aniversary (aswell as the 100th aniversary of the Russian revolution) I wanted to share some space images with you. In this case we have images from the Indian Mars Orbiter Mission that celebrates also it's third year in space. I've downloaded some raw images and made some ...

Mods and Addons - Requests, suggestions and ideas

14325 Has there been an attempt to animate gas giants? It'd probably take a lot of processing power, not to mention speeding up time to actually see it, but that'd be really cool to watch one day. Especially with the palettes mod. Indeed it would be beautifull. This has been suggested several times...

Unrealistic stars.

14193  it would be possible that our galaxy had stars like that when it was much younger too? Thats right!

Unrealistic stars.

14156 It makes me wonder how did R136a1 happen if it is such an outlier? And there are others in the same cluster of a similar mass? And how come the LMC has it and none have been found in our galaxy or Andromeda M31 which are both much larger? Even if vast parts of our galaxy have unknown stars du...

The Gaia Mission

14067 I could see some sort of mass extinction event occurring here The scientific paper I linked before is full of details about the event. The star is moving quite slow and that are very bad news since its gravitational influece would last longer and is going to increase our issues with comets. T...
