Solar System dynamics discussion thread

it is even possible for an object to orbit around... something that has no mass at all!   (Here, there be dragons  Lagrange Points). Could I place the Moon (or a moon in general) to the Lagrangian point between the planet and the parent sun so it casts a permanent solar eclipse shadow on the planet...

20886 Is the Moon more strongly atracted to the Sun than to Earth? Reading this question, I though that the obvious answer is no. Moon should be more attracted to Earth, since it orbits it, instead of the Sun. So I checked the  gravitational force calculator . Moon is attracted to Earth with the fo...

What if giant planets were closer to the Sun with other planets as their moons? The answer is 12 terraformed worlds, one artificial and Earth tidally locked to Jupiter, with the farthest point from the core, Chimborazo, having Jupiter directly overhead. Added to my database.

SE Object Extremes

In most cases, neutron stars and black holes seem to be accompanied by a brown or red dwarf if in a binary system. The rarest binary star arrangement I stumbled across once was a neutron star (or a black hole) with a main sequence F class star. Has anyone ever found a multiple star with more than on...

Unusual weather

It also lasted long. Formed in the German Alps and over the night, traveled about 700 kilometers northeast before dissipating in the morning.

Unusual weather

I woke up to this today. Thunderstorms are not unusual this time of the year, but this is definitely one of the stronger ones.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Sometimes while editing a planet and exporting, canyonFraction drops to 0. Then I have to rewrite it manually to canyonsFraction and add the value I want (I believe plural form with s to be correct, since the other two parameters for canyons use it). It mostly happens to me while editing deserts and...

Science and Astronomy Questions

20650 In an unrelated question, do all Earthlike planets orbiting G-class stars have to have green plants? This is a fascinating subject and you might enjoy checking out this thread from the old forum. :) I think it is far from certain that all plants on planets orbiting G stars must be based on gr...

Freelancer-Sirius Sector minor update: I have just added 8192x4096 maps of the dyson sphere in an additional link. The base version of the addon only uses 4096x2048 textures, because my SE crashes everytime I try to use bigger ones. Just replace the old DS maps in addons/textures/planets.

Space chats with your friendly neighbourhood anthropologist!

Hello there. I am a soon-to-be 22 years old student of applied physics. 6715 Why space? What does it mean to you? Why does it interest you? What inspired you or sparked your original interest? It is not easy to elaborate why am I interested in space. It is like when people ask me questions like why ...

So the Vandor-1 planet in Solo, while sharing the exact same name as the planet in the EU, is not in the Coruscant system but somewhere in the mid-rim. How are you going to deal with duplicates like that? Objects can be named the same, if they have different parent bodies. For example, asteroids S1...

the worst thing that has ever happened to you

Well, got hit by a car when aged 8 at the end of my first grade in elementary school. Two broken vertebrae accompanied by a much less serious pelvis fracture. It took me three weeks in hospital (where I observed my first and only Venus transit, 2004, so there is at least some light in it) and the re...
