Script to find distances between one world and others?

At least that first option agrees with what Space Engine says so that's good. But yeah unfortunately without a list that's no use to me.

Script to find distances between one world and others?

yeah i'm basically doing that. I want to get the distances of all the planets relative to eachother on certain dates, and clicking them all or typing names in is too tedious! I was just hoping there was a way for a script to just display the distances for all of them at once directly on the screen a...

Script to find distances between one world and others?

OK thanks - that seems a bit too fiddly for me though (the view is harder to control and it's full of asteroids). So far I'm just going to the object I want distances from and bringing up the solar system display at the top and clicking on each planet there and writing down the distances. I was just...

Script to find distances between one world and others?

is there any way to make a script in SE that shows (or better still, outputs) the distance between planets in a system at a certain time (e.g. the date the in-game clock is currently set at)? e.g. if I want to know how far Jupiter is from Sol, Earth, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune on a ...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

At this stage, there's no excuse for not being safe. On one hand, the stupid ones will literally die out because of this, since they'll be more likely to get the disease and die from it - on the other hand, they're going to spread it around before they die and more people will catch it. And unfortun...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Seems to be evidence now that the virus can be carried in aerosol form and linger in the air (i,.e. is airborne), not just in droplets - so masks are not redundant at all.  If people want to risk dying or suffering really bad after-effects from a serious infection and potentially killing others by s...

I miss these - tidally heated binary planemos that were so hot they illuminated the moons around them (up to a certain distance anyway). They were around in 0.980 (you could find them by searching for planemos that had temperatures over 500K) but I don't think they exist anymore in 0.990. :( The com...

Some pictures of Darwin IV

Nice, is that pink area the Amoebic Sea? (i'm assuming this is the Darwin IV from Expedition?)

Strange sightings

RS 8474-1353-8-11843531-674 is a planemo with 3 moons, the weird part is that it is being lit by its closest moon. I even bookmarked as "How?" This is a 0.980 find by the way. Tidal heating probably. The closest moon is hot enough from that to glow and that illuminates the rest (out to a ...

Possible bug: Incorrect calculation of radii/luminosities of procedural B-type stars

Not sure if Red Giants follow that the Mass-Luminosity relationship, I think it only applies to Main Sequence stars?

Possible bug: Incorrect calculation of radii/luminosities of procedural B-type stars

If you knew anything about astronomy (obviously the larger luminosity value was the more correct one, plus the Mass-Luminosity relationship used in the calculation is even actually explained right there on the website and is quite well established) and could have been bothered to do a simple search ...

And what data supports which calculation?

Actual science and reality?
e.g. B0 V star - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tau_Scorpii
either way, their Luminosity should be in the tens of thousands of sols, not hundreds.
