Work progress 0.990

So how’s the update coming along? Anything new for 2019? (you can answer at your discretion)

Science and Astronomy News

In brief, measurements using the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation place the value of the Hubble constant at somewhere around 67km/s/Mpc, while a an analysis of type Ia supernovae place it higher, at around 73.5km/s/Mpc.  There are error bars associated with both of these values, but they don't...

All of the news as of late has been headlines saying “Universe expanding faster than thought” but after a few days and many sites later, including nature, none of them has said this new rate. What is the measurement! I have to know!

Work progress 0.990

Are the rings generated pseudo-randomly or is there a check to whether there exists valid orbits around a planet for rings to form, and they do. Since all large planets have rings that we have had the opportunity to check, right? And do the new equatorial ridges on ringlets happen 100% of the time o...

Work progress 0.990

In the upcoming release, will there be more customization for clouds? As in, specifying cloud coverage per latitude? Say, from the pole to 30 degree, coverage 90%, and tropics 10%? Or would that be in a future release (perhaps avoided entirely by accurate climate approximation?) Secondly, you stated...

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I actually have to disagree here, I don’t think planets will look the same after a while in reality. Every single object in our solar system is unique, and full of anomalies. Even asteroids can be told apart (kinda). The point is, if the universe is just a little more diverse than our solar system (...

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I do have one wish for the final release: make the game constructive instead of destructive. Make it a game of colonization, not one of destruction. Have planets become developed, not destroyed. I love the planetarium and exploration aspect of space engine. My personal biggest fear is if space engi...

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I am so excited for the upcoming release, especially that it is starting to resemble a legit program (you know what I mean). But I do have my concerns, and I feel it negligent to not report upon them, it is not ready for first impressions, and that needs to be made clear. People who haven’t followed...

18904 exact same system with a rotated coordinate system. Got it. Well thanks! Sorry if I barraged you too much with questions, as I have so many and know so little people who are willing to answer them. And this honestly was the first time someone actually answered my questions, and kept answering...

Science and Astronomy Questions

18871 In general, points (t, r, φ) on the orbits will not be mirrored with points at (t, r, -φ).  So it is not symmetric about the time axis. It won't be mirrored in a sense, but wouldn't the outcome be the same? 18871 This graphic Woah! I was close, but I measured things differently. My graph curv...

18860 Rewind the clock on a system that dissipates energy, and it will look very different in the past than it does in the future. I wasn't really referring to a forwards-backwards time symmetry, rather a left-right symmetry. If I graphed out two inwards spiraling planets, colliding into one object...

18840 provided there are no damping mechanisms How does that break the symmetry? I'm gonna guess, unless I am wrong, that you mean a changing orbit over time. Wouldn't two spiraling-inward planets still have this symmetry regardless? 18840 The geometry of space-time is Minkowskian.  This is not in ...

18810 It was theorized as a solution to an outstanding problem in the standard model, and it was verified by experiment.  That's as close to necessary and reasonable as anything gets. My concern is that all they did was predict a particle and observe it, and did not verify its properties. So far wh...

18708 This model (The Higgs Mechanism) has been verified by experiment, for which the team won the Nobel Prize.  It may seem like it makes no sense, but it correctly describes and predicts nature! My problem with it is that it both is unnecessary and unreasonable. If particles were to "natural...

18663 so I can confidently say that wave-particle duality is real. I would not doubt the reality of wave-particle duality, however, it does get me thinking... If a particle is a wave, and a wave a particle, shouldn't it be neither? As in, if you define a particle as something that isn't a wave, and...
