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...

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...

Added Sirius Sector from the game Freelancer. I've been working on it for quite a while, so I hope you enjoy it. :) Here are some highlights. Not enough to spoil the addon, hopefully. https://i.imgur.com/uTVNedI.jpg Planet Houston https://i.imgur.com/lk5gTNv.jpg Planet Munich with a ringed wormhole ...

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...

Watsisname , there is probably no error in your equations. I used 10 nanometres wide rectangles, but the difference should be negligible. The thing is, that our specifics for the variable star itself differ. My temperature waves between 2400 and 2700 K and radius goes from 349 to 481 Solar radii (W...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Watsisname , according to several of my uni teachers, the spectral distribution function is not integrable for definite bounds. Meaning, I cannot hope to form the integration using elementary functions. So at first, I approximated it for visible spectrum (390-700nm) by cutting the distribution func...

Science and Astronomy Questions

So I chose to plot a curve of a variable star for homework at university before realizing that it may be more complicated... Star's radius and temperature changes in time. I know that the surface temperature is highest about the time of the smallest radius.  I am talking about  Chi Cygni  here. It's...
