Totally off-topic thread

I hope I didn't break any April Fools rules lol but yeah I wanted to make sure everybody woke up to a fascinating news story before they realized they've been fooled, or were on their toes after getting fooled by other things. :)

I LOVE the artist rendition of the exoplanet.

Help with creating Mods and Addons

It's always nice to delete the cache when adding or modifying custom Planet scripts, each time you start the program.

Not that it works in your case exactly, but it did for me in similar situations many times.

Help with creating Mods and Addons

I made The Cosmic Eyelash galaxy add on. Download it and look at the whole package. There are notes in the script that might help. There's also a tutorial in these forums that's nearly required reading. Basically it is just a texture with each of the color channels representing stars, clusters, and ...

Well I don't consider Twitter a source for real info but it was by Dr. Jessie Christiansen on twitter.

I wonder if anybody has heard about research on a pair of binary supermassive black holes with self microlensing events periodically, from Kepler? Another microlensing event on the schedule for 2020. A nice fit to a light curve previously studied.

The Search for Planet 9.png Since we first heard about the Planet 9 hypothesis to explain the clustering of the periapses of numerous long-period detached Kuiper Belt Object orbits, many new objects out there have been found. The sample of objects has approximately doubled, and consequently the con...

Do you think we are alone in the Milky Way?

I don't mean to sound as if I am espousing the Rare Earth Hypothesis, that we are alone because the circumstances needed for life to occur happen so seldom that only once every billion light years we would find life. I'm not even considering what else could possibly be out there. My only argument is...

Do you think we are alone in the Milky Way?

27309 For the sake of argument, what would be the core message of your resistance? Perhaps I've been watching too many Ancient Aliens TV episodes. Yes indeed, we have only one example of life, but what can we extrapolate from it? What conditions are necessary for us to exists and why are the constr...

Do you think we are alone in the Milky Way?

Out of the countless factors and filters in any calculation for the probability of life being within the range of detectability, if a single one is 10 times less likely that could potentially place it not only outside of our own galaxy but outside the small group of galaxies that will remain within ...

OPPORTUNITY has been spotted, apparently on the Jawa Black Market. It does come with a new warranty however. No it doesn't speak Batchi or the binary language of moister evaporators, unfortunately.
