Random Planet Finder?

I know very little about the code used in SpaceEngine scripts, but I was wondering if there's a straightforward way to either select a random star (for example, by picking a random right ascension and declination, traveling a random distance, and picking the nearest star), or generate a random RS/RS...

Strange sightings

I guess life on all the other planets is not intelligent enough to have fire or electricity, yet. Perhaps in a future version of SE they will have evolved enough to create their own night-side lights. lol I'm hoping at least for, perhaps, procedurally-generated cities or settlements, or at the very...

I think IC 1101 is my favorite galaxy in Space Engine (even though I usually prefer cool procedurally-generated stuff). It's got such an enormous central black hole that you can find things like RSC 10389-10378-4-2706-294 6, a very hot (>200 C) terra with a thick (> 1000 atm) atmosphere, and multice...

Strange sightings

Found an object with strange, terraced, grid-like tesserae, like on Venus. Except, the "terrain" is the plasma of the photosphere of a red hypergiant.

Science and Astronomy Questions

I wonder how people would react to a black hole suddenly appearing and beginning to slowly devour Earth. Hopefully nobody would try to jump into it. I can quite easily imagine small fanatical black-hole-worshipping suicide cults. Heck, I still remember hearing about that cult suicide when Hale-Bopp...

Lakagigar , yeah actually, I think it's either 5 or 10 posts. If you have any more questions, post them in the appropriate thread  :D I was wondering about that. I couldn't figure out how to edit a post or create a thread. For a while, I thought I was going crazy. Then I realized it was some sort o...

SE Object Extremes

On and off, for the last year or two, I've been searching for the hottest procedural planet in SpaceEngine. This is RS 0-7-936228-949-7-0-0-15 B2. It's a scorched desert at 1,440 C and a somewhat Venus-like atmosphere of water vapor and carbon dioxide. It orbits fairly close to a 10-solar-mass blue ...

Hello everybody! Hobo Sullivan here. Not much to say. Slightly obsessed with astronomy, and SpaceEngine feeds my obsession nicely.

That's a nice volcano. Mine are always so bland and uniform. Yours has snow! Here's a planet I found. I call it the Poison Sea: it's a temperate oceania. Its atmospheric pressure is 0.12 atmospheres. Its atmosphere is composed of (in order of percentage): hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, carbon dio...

4693 I'm currently hunting for the fastest-rotating rocky planet I can find. So far, the fastest I've found is RS 8591-173-1-5-111 1,which rotates in 8 hours and 46 minutes I love that the planet has approximately 1300 times the atmospheric pressure of Earth, 14 times the atmospheric pressure of Ve...
