Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

As mentioned before, it may be worth looking at Norway and Sweden which have chosen different strategies.  Norway chose "the hammer" shutting down just about everything, whilst Sweden chose to keep most things running focusing on isolating the vulnerable.  Sweden in blue and Norway in pin...

33111 give everyone $1,000 to stimulate the economy after this horror ends. A $1 trillion stimulus package From where?  Tax increases?  Borrow from China?  Banknote printing? Generally speaking, these emergency funds are from governmental contingencies established prior for these situations, or set...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

33137 The virus does not have some intrinsic transmission coefficient or mortality rate. Both depend on how we respond to it. This is important.  When all this is over, the mortality will say less about the virus itself than it will tell how well we are able to protect the vulnerable.  Complete loc...

33180 For example this planet here has an unrealistic orbital period. All of the others do aswell. You're right. I had forgotten that, but due to a bug in SE 0.980, SpaceEngine calculated the orbital period incorrectly when the objects orbit around a barycenter. I have made a script for SE 0.980, a...

Wonderful!  Is this add on both for 0980 and 0990?

Help with creating Mods and Addons

33164 I am having trouble with creating planets in the castor system. I can't make planets orbit around the barycenter. Could someone please make an example solar system around the 3 pairs of stars in the system for me so I could make planets around it using that as a base line? Which barycenter? I...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

And also, I noticed that when clouds have negative velocities, the spinning direction of clouds doesn't change, they just spin backwards. I think this needs to be fixed in later versions, because this would also help in creating procedural cloud textures (textures for Venus for example). maybe we c...

33142 The economy doesn't matter at this point. Remember that there is a percentage of the population that is alive thanks to a well economically developed society, and we can't allow that to change.  We need to be pragmatic.  We want to avoid triage in healthcare, and trade that for temporary tria...

Alarming (but not yet robustly verified) news. It appears that the strain of the virus spreading through the US  might be more dangerous in younger age groups: https://i.imgur.com/PqOFXJX.png I'm hoping that this could be due to biases in terms of people who have the most travel and contact with ot...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

“It had only killed 41 people” isn't a good metric. A virus that’s infected, say, 500,000 people and killed 41 is quite a different thing from a virus that’s infected 42 people and killed 41. The mortality rate of this virus is 41 in 4,000 cases, or about 1%. Doesn’t sound like a lot, right? By...

It also has a tendency to directly go for the lungs and result in pneumonia, fibrosis (scarring), and permanently reduced lung capacity. For some, recovery does not necessarily mean back to 100%, and that is also not always limited to the elderly or cases with the most severe symptoms. I've seen so...

33136 "Can" is also an important word. If treated, mortality does seem fairly low, and I wouldn't be surprised if it approaches that of flu when all the numbers are in.  If the healthcare system is overwhelmed, however, there can be little doubt now that it becomes a very dangerous virus ...
