25390  I have rarely seen slow bright meteors with Perseids too but it required observation over three consecutive nights to see just one- that one actually had a tail and dropped somewhere over the Ocean to our south I think. Meteor showers have particles with a distribution of sizes, and even the...

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

Thanks Phunnie, do I need to replace the files I downloaded lol (800k, 2M and 5M) or are those the same as before?  I downloaded them on the same day I made that post thanking you- 12/8 or 12/9 I think. I see this in the changelog- also there is no 28M star file.  You can go higher with stars than 5...

Is that why the Geminids have way more fireballs (because they come from asteroids?)  I have rarely seen slow bright meteors with Perseids too but it required observation over three consecutive nights to see just one- that one actually had a tail and dropped somewhere over the Ocean to our south I t...

I love Twilight Zone (the earlier seasons of course) - one of my favorite episodes was 'Time Enough at Last'. With how much I love reading, i could totally see myself being that guy haha. I also loved Monsters on Maple Street and the hour long one where he tries to go back in time and stop the Linc...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

25337 volumetric clouds is a must these days I second this. 25053 What atmospheric gasses should be looked for to find the most colorful skies? I forgot to answer your question A-L-E-X, excuse me: Ignoring other factors like incoming light-wave length variability, a high chlorine content in an atmo...

@Vladimir , just curious if a distance measure feature will be added in this version? Like, point and click to know the distance to the mountain you're looking at or to see how deep a canyon is, to kinda get a perspective of distance and scale in numbers. You probably remember me asking before abou...

25308 How many real exoplanets are in the new version of the program as of right now? It is a 1.5 years old, 3566 confirmed planets, 1804 candidates and few dozen of manually tweaked ones. 25345 I think one day,those jets will be volumetric too,just like those nebulas. They are volumetric, like com...

100 meteors per hour!  I thought the Perseids were the most faithful and consistent meteor shower but Geminids are right up there too!

It does, thats why I advocate trying to keep scientific advancements separate from military ones.  Daniel Ellsberg is amazing, he was one of the first whistleblowers and also released The Pentagon Papers! I think I might have read the same book, or an interview done with Ellsberg about that book you...

Of all things I am uncertain, except that I must be uncertain by at least half of the reduced Planck constant. :) Added: I removed a post containing a bunch of links.  Please, on this forum, do not just make links to suggested reading with very little else for context and call it a post.  I view th...

Yes he and the whole team have done a magnificent job!  One other suggestion I thought of, what reminded me was the new gridding system on planets which will be very nice for navigation- can we also have compass points on planet surfaces?  So for example when we go in a certain direction we know we ...

Oh ok, just making sure. :)  A year or so ago I read a fairly thick tome reviewing the development of the first atomic bombs .  For most of the book it goes through the development of the physics by the scientists at Los Alamos in great detail.  It was surprisingly fascinating.  And then at the end...

To be clear, I never meant that nuclear weapons are not terrible. 25297 In the far distant future perhaps, the ultimate source of energy will be matter-antimatter interactions which will result in a 100% conversion of matter into energy. Probably not, because you have to put the same or even more e...

25252 I know it is being released on Steam but will it be released on the website at the same time? I like downloading things from here. No. This would require implementation of DRM protection and auto-update system. Maybe in future, if I decide to go out from Steam. 25252 Two suggestions for a lat...
