Total Solar Eclipse 2017

11844  It will be interesting to see how well this prediction matches up with the reality. Wow, this is amazing. http://i.imgur.com/129132H.gif http://www.predsci.com/corona/aug2017eclipse/results/q_map/images/tricol_Full_log10qavg_101_labeled.png Maybe SpaceEngine could have one day this kind of c...

11718 earth = 9.807 m/s2 that's faster then light? Acceleration has little to do with speed. In a classical sense you could say that light is not accelerating at all but has the highest speed possible for example. I could be accelerating as crazy but having zero speed in this instant. Don't confuse...

Not even comparable to the scientific realism of Space Engine in fact. Elite dangerous is just a game, SE is way more

11653 And this is why Antifa is bad. Precisely because of this is why antifa is something needed in my opinion. Nazis march in your country as proud as they can be, thinking of themselves as superior beings, capable of crushing every obstacle they encounter because they think they pertain to the mo...

The Gaia Mission

The implementation in Space Engine so far: The discussion begun 4 years ago in the old forum. These are quotes from Vladimir Romanyuk (Space Engineer), the developer of Space Engine. "Currenly SE uses this data per star: Coordinates (XYZ or RA/Dec/Dist) - 3 floats (12 bytes) Lu...

11504 I will check the thread out :-) Thank you. I will apreciate if it usefull for inspiring people to know more about GAIA. 11504  I have a free program called YoWindow which does it very well for locations around the world I mean, Yowindow is not an accurate nor a usefull source for SE as I can ...

The Gaia Mission

"Gaia provides the detailed 3D distributions and space motions of all these stars, complete to 20th magnitude. This allows our Galaxy to be mapped, for the first time, in three dimensions. Some 10 million stars will be measured with a distance accuracy of better than 1 percent; some 100 millio...

11440 OMG that is going to be AMAZING!  I had never heard about this Gaia project before.  So we will be able to 3D plot the vast majority of stars down to Mag 12 or so? :D you never heard of that? It's going to be a leap in the history of astronomy. The European Space Agency doesn't advertize as m...

The Gaia Mission

Hi everyone! Many times in this forum we have talked about gaia without having a proper thread for this. Now we can talk about one of the most important missions of history, Gaia mission (of the European Space Agency). The results are going to make a huge impact in astrophysics and therefore in the ...

11423 Can we add Tycho 1 and 2 catalogs as well as USNO catalogs?  I know the distances aren't known but can't we guess those based on spectral class?  It's better than procedural stars- catalog stars actually exist That would make sense if there where reliable spectral classifications for all thos...

11305 Whoops! I thought black dwarfs were 100% confirmed! The universe is not sufficiently old to have Black Dwarfs yet. Those are white dwarfs that have radiated the vast majority of their residual heat and are no more visible in the visible spectrum. The oldest white dwarfs known are from the inf...
