Science being a social construct is an interesting idea though.  I've has this discussion on here and other forums, talking about the differences between science and nature.  Nature= what IS (whether we know it or not) vs Science (our modeling of nature, which will always be to some degree imperfect...

Science and Astronomy Questions

In a multiverse one could perhaps argue that the past, present and future are fixed and predetermined, but our path through the multiple universes of the predetermined multiverse is not, perhaps fundamentally indeterminable. It does make me wonder, glad to see you thinking along the same lines :) W...

Thanks, I guess those are the two add ons I am waiting on :) I also wanted to see one for that cigar shaped object that was journeying through our solar system but I think you were waiting to get more specifics on that object.

Thanks Jack, what's a good resolution and LOD setting to use for it?  4 GB RAM of which 1.7 GB is used for Video Memory.  Can a resolution of 1024x700 be used with LOD of 0? Is that what you use?

They could be, but I'm not aware of anything that convincingly pushes favor towards or against it besides personal philosophies and wish-casting.  Like (or even highly related to) the various interpretations of quantum mechanics. :)   Yes, there's so many of them it's bewildering.  I know Doc favor...

SE 0.971 works reasonably well. At the moment, I'm mainly working with this.

So Jack, if she gets that version she can see planets and land on their surfaces and stuff?

18209 Wat, that looks like something Einstein might have scribbled It is not the longest calculation I've ever done, but it is definitely one of the most "oh god, the symbols..." reaction inducing ones.  :P   The calculation is basically just verifying that the expectation value of the en...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Hey I need to ask a question for my friend who just installed SE....she can't see planets, what could be the reason for that?  Besides that the program runs fine.  Is there a specific group of settings she needs to use to see planets?Setting LOD to -2?  Reducing resolution? She had it set to 1024x70...
