HD 26965 b aka Vulcan

Not bad at all. Looks comparable to this shot taken during last week's flyby.

What are your own personal ways of dealing with anxiety and depression?

You might pick up a copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It might give you a little insight into the state of being human. I believe a lot of anxiety and depression is because of the Pressures we create for ourselves and Society creates for all of us. I had quite a bout of it during my...

A bit touchy-feely practicing their decent towards Ryugu last night. Hayabusa2 "The first operation rehearsal for the first touchdown of Hayabusa2 began on September 10 and during September 11, the spacecraft descended towards Ryugu. Today (September 12), the spacecraft was approaching the plan...

the worst thing that has ever happened to you

I just ended a 12 relationship with a woman I had planned on spending the rest of time on this planet with. You can imagine the investment of the best years of my life being tossed into the void. She was the only person who knew who I was. For the first time ever I'm glad we didn't have any children...

22722 how to create a cube planet That's easy. Use a cubed Cube-map for the Bump-map. Each side of a cube has edges higher than the center when placed around a sphere. A radial gradation of greys from low (dark) to high (white) will fill one square side of a cube, making it a square shape when used...

My only guess was intergalactic red giants previously ejected and finally going nova with a whimper, all alone out there. Or something similar to "galactic Oort clouds".

Time, but of course, not just because Alan Pearson's antique clock chimes, like gravity waves, can be heard clear across the Galaxy, it's that lately I've quietly been hanging on... Running out of breath... waiting for something to show me the way.

Very cool Stellerator! Very informative post. I can understand how heavier elements can be detected in these extremely hot and diffuse clouds but how in the world did atoms created within earlier generations of stars end up in between galaxies? Please don't tell me the tag along Dark Matters is to b...

Hahahaha - Don't worry though, I'll get it right some time this weekend, and post my first share. But... it has to be perfect! Grrrr It was pretty cool the first time I ever created nearly a trillion star systems! Wow! scr03233.jpg I think my alpha channel is clean, it must be on R, G, or B. Probabl...

General questions about SpaceEngine

Thanks again Watsisname!

The distance noted on the left side of the screen to other galaxies is the distance (time) light has traveled or is it a comoving radial distance for right now? Meaning, is the expansion of the universe included? Also, is the Space Engine universe flat or open?

General questions about SpaceEngine

Galaxies are known to move some quite fast. I've noticed online some Galaxies have multiple positioning data. I guess I should assume all locations in SE are based on the frame j2000?

I believe you'll notice in the two different sources there's conflicting data, since revised and most likely will be revised again before going public.

One last quick thought: It was a super Earth with a very very short orbital period and semi-major axis that got blown in half and has been yo-yoing for millions of years since, without any other planetary object to perturb it? I can't wait to learn more too. Only a half dozen Pulsar planets have bee...

I'm figuring a perihelion of 0.336 & Aphelion of 16.464 with an aspect ratio of 0.28 A pretty thin sliver. I have no idea of the solar mass for the pulsar, but they are pretty dense, about a billion tons a teaspoon. Whip it! Whip it real good! Formula for Precession - (Torque-induced - Classical...
