Science and Astronomy Questions

Has the Milky-way ever been or ever will be considered a Quasar? Is any galaxy with enough activity at its center labeled as a Quasar, and do they oscillate between the two definitions over enough time? Why is it we only see Quasars at extremely far distances (long ago)? Have we witnessed one flare ...

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

Thanks. I love the idea that anything is possible, but also like trying to keep it in the realm of physical possibilities. We humans understand the laws of nature, physics, math, chemistry, etc well enough and should be able to predict, with the help of computers, what possible ways energy transfer ...

Help with creating Mods and Addons

I'm having a little trouble understanding the proper use of tags and the settings for using CubeMap & IrfanView 64 to create custom textures. The instructions on the Forum are helpful, but a bit confusing or lacking certain clues. I've never had much trouble creating 8bit RGB PNGs and converting...

Haha great now I can think through this properly. My first thought is frame-dragging might destroy the portals but perhaps they are indestructible somehow

Could it be possible that they are bowling balls rather than cannonballs perhaps?

Science and Astronomy Questions

Yes, those things keep me up at night after reading too much Wikipedia. Is not Gravity the force that keeps the bowling balls from becoming larger? Gravity has also been keeping all other matter from being ripped apart, ever since the expansion rate started accelerating 7 billion years after the uni...

Convert Cubemap to Equirectangular or the reverse with this simple web page

More great free software.  NASA's Global Map Projector is free to download. Add overlays of your choice to a globe and save the file as one of over 120 different map projections. Uses Java 8. Wow! :shock: List of supported map projection types: Adams Hemisphere in a Square, Adams World in a Square I...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Can gravitational lensing be correlated with galactic rotation, both being caused by Dark Matter, rather than two separate observations of phenomenon?
