Can't wait for what the seasons look like on other planets

Starting with Mars!

General 0.990 Discussion

Is the new version going to allow us to play around with atmospheric composition on procedural planets?  For example- will it allow us to change the composition and percentage of each element or gas to see what the results are?

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

hmm I found the galaxy M87 in Space Engine, but no listing for the black hole itself.  Unlike M81, where there is a listing both for the galaxy and for the black hole. You can select it by clicking one of the orbiting stars around the black hole, clicking the system button to get a list of objects ...

Thanks for the graphs!  I've always wondered what shadows would look like in multiple star systems- especially with different colored stars!

3 facts maybe you don't know about antimatter

28295 Maybe that's the big filter. (Fermi paradox.) I find that unlikely, since a civilization advanced enough to make quantities of antimatter sufficient to deal any real damage to their planet would also have sophisticated space-travel capabilities and the required magnetic storage facilities, lo...

It's amazing to think that all the gold and silver in the world was formed by neutron star collisions (or possibly supernova explosions?)

Science and Astronomy News

Yet more space news concerning exoplanets (this week has been a busy one!): A second planet some 6 times the mass of Earth may have been spotted orbiting our closest neighboring star, Proxima Centauri. Remembering the false-detection of a planet orbiting Alpha Cen. B, I remain cautious about accept...

28240 but mathematically it's possible to construct a dual universe model with arrows of time going in opposite directions (relative to each other but both always forward relative to the constituents in each universe), if (again relative to the first universe) one universe has massed particles that...

Science and Astronomy Questions

A thought while watching a video about quantum entanglement: If quantum entanglements really exist, that is only possible in my opinion if space is not what we think. If what we see as space is only an illusion, if what we see as distance does not exist in reality at all. Thats correct.  I remember...

The first black hole photo

28238 Question- why did this have to be kept secret for years (even from family members)?  On news reports, the MIT scientist who formulated the algorithm said she couldn't tell anyone, not even family members. I think this is excellently explained in the press conference, in the segment from 19:43...

The fascinating thing is, one clearly single causal event cant be attributed to most of these mass extinction events, even the K-T event may have been accelerated by multiple events, including the Deccan Traps.  If any one of these events had occurred alone maybe it wouldn't have happened. Getting b...

Well I was referring to photons because (call it intuition) I feel that photons are one thing that all universes should have in common.  I was referring to light and e=mc^2.  We are delving strongly into theoretical physics, but mathematically it's possible to construct a dual universe model with ar...
