Conspiracy Theory Thread

6706 The Curiosity camera has a tough time seeing them at all, not enough atmosphere to give a view like we get. Hey, you know that pesky thing called exposure which was recently implemented in SE? It makes it so that if you want to see stars, you have to oversaturate everything else, which makes i...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

Well, if I am going to be a conspiracist, I may as well go all the way. I claim the Sun nor anything else is visible from Cislunar space, from outside of the Earth or Lunar atmosphere, as it is an atmosphere that creates visible light. The only people who know what the view is like from Cislunar sp...

6526 With an alternative model of just what is going on out there as far as visibility of the heavens, I certainly expect and indeed welcome challenges, though I'd prefer science instead of insults. It happens when most "alternative models of just what is going on" are based on the assump...

6470 The Hipparcos instrument was not a regular camera connected to a telescope, and plus, you will not find any pretty photos from it Dude, the Hipparcos was made to stare at mundane stars to measure their parallax and proper motion, not to take pretty photos. Pretty photos are exactly what the Hu...

COMMUNITY ADDON - Catalog Fixes for SE

PH1 b (aka Kepler 64 b) is an exoplanet in a quadruple system that orbits the AB pair, but in SE it orbits the whole system's barycenter instead.

Science and Astronomy Questions

6409 I don't understand why only NASA can do it, and that no other space capable nation has a space based telescope. Maybe because USA is about the only nation that can afford pouring billions of dollars into making one? Also, they let other parties take turns at using it, so what's the point of wa...

Without an atmosphere similar to Earths to convert the UV to visible

Sorry, what?!
Where did even got something like that? Unless I'm missing something, air isn't capable of magically doing that conversion. UV is almost completely blocked by it.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Greetings, this is my first post, and I am posting due to an error I am having with the star browser. In short, it is ignoring all but a few planets. I am searching for a temperate terra with multicellular marine and terrestrial life around a g-type main sequence star, basically another Earth. I ha...

Going 150000 light years away from the Milky Way and turning up the magnitude limit to 15 really puts into perspective the distribution of calatog and procedural objects in it.

Real planet brightness?


For the SE pic, yeah. I know it is not realistically calibrated in the public version, but I prefer it over "constant illumination until an abrupt cut-off around the scattered disk".

Strange sightings

This peculiar semi-procedural (as in I only input period and mean anomaly) moon is from a gas giant of my custom system. scr00003.png Besides the curious purple-colored lowlands, this moon is only a bit smaller than Earth, yet very slightly more massive (and dense) despite being listed as an ice wor...
