Unrealistic stars.

if 300 M stars are only theoretical but present in the program then we should also have the theoretical quark stars too :P

General questions about SpaceEngine

I have a question, when looking at the sky at night (from Earth or any planet) is there a way to center on the Zenith?

Space chats with your friendly neighbourhood anthropologist!

A-L-E-X - it sounds as though you must have a pretty rounded set of experiences and perspectives! Personally I tend to think that breadth and variety can be really helpful in approaching any topic with nuance, and I agree with you there - there are lots of really interesting people here with so man...

The Gaia Mission

hmmm I wonder if this star has any planets and what will happen to them?  I could see some sort of mass extinction event occurring here since those seem to be periodic anyway- hopefully we are a space-faring civilization long before then! FFT any idea when we will have accurate star and galaxy prope...

With that said, I do find that some scientists tend to be egostistical and give their fellow scientists a hard time when they make discoveries or come up with theories that challenge the paradigm (I hear this complaint quite often.)  There is also the question of monetary influence (this mostly appl...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

Wow thanks FFT!  I wonder if that galaxy add-on will work in the new version?  And I remember we discussed the Gaia catalog awhile back.

Science and Astronomy Questions

Back on one of the other science forums I frequent we're talking about signs that the volcano Agung might erupt in the near future and the possibility of it causing a (temporary) cool down in the climate because it's near the equator and it's usually low latitude volcanoes that do that.  Would proba...

Unlikely but definitely possible, and that is an absolutely crazy thing to think about.

I think it's more likely that life doesn't exist anywhere at all, and we are all just part of a collective dream :P

Politics

I have to agree with you that I despise neoliberals like the Clintons- they are the disease that caused most of the problems with their greed.  Trump is a symptom of the problem, not the cure but also not the cause.  I consider myself a progressive and a libertarian and prefer the Nordic Model. Nor...

Lighting mechanism.

Thanks guys.  I thought it was a driver thing, I do most of my tweaks using the Nvidia Driver or a  nifty program called Nspector

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

Nice video, Doc!  "Black Hole Farming" is an interesting concept.  I've seen an idea of using mini black holes to power space ships used before in sci fi stories, I wonder if we will do that one day.

Show off your work

I was in Beijing this week.  I had to present a paper to get it published (IEEE/ICIP2017).  So I went to see a section of the Great Wall, which is compulsory, I guess.  The hike along a non-restored section of the wall was actually much more enjoyable than the restored section which was just crowde...
