In SpaceEngine, the star CHI Aqr is also called Situla. However, the name actually belongs to KAP Aqr.

[quote="Gakko"]About KOI-3891.01, are the textures for it messed up for you too?[/quote]
Yeah... So are most of other "planets" that are obviously way too big to even make sense.

FW Tau is a binary star system with a gas giant orbiting both of them. The gas giant takes 11421.023 years in Space Engine. The problem is that both stars orbit each other at wildly different orbital periods. One of them has a orbital period of 24.376 years, while the other is 11421.023 years, exact...

Dreams you've had

One of the dreams that I remember the most is pretty straightforward, but it's one of the weirdest.

Oh, and there's also the Beagle Boys from the Donald Duck comics that were in ...

Hi!

In Space Engine, Rigel Ba and Rigel Bb orbit each other with an orbital period of 9.86 YEARS.
In Wikipedia, they are supposed to orbit each other with an orbital period of 9.86 DAYS.
Fixing it should be easy. Just divide 9.86 with 365.24218985 and overwrite the period value with that.
