Work progress 0.990

I take it that the infrared map of Titan is a temporary feature of this version? From what I have seen of DoctorofSpace 's work on  planetary palettes, photorealism seems to the aim of the engine when simulating planetary features. It seems a bit unrealistic to have a infrared map of Titan while eve...

That is indeed sad. He was one of the few level-headed ones (as far as UFOlogists go ;)).

28876 Stellarator, do you find having authority figures a good thing? Yes I do, but we must be aware of their limitations and create laws or regulations that curb their interests so that they are doing what is best for society, not themselves or their peers. "What is good for society" is ...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

Summary: The most well-known conspiracies of our modern age are catalyzed by a crisis of confidence in so-called experts, and seem keen on undermining your trust in authority rather then seeking out any truth, however misguided the premise of that search may be.

28843 What makes you say that it's chances of supporting life are minimal? Perhaps it is my inner pessimist, but even if the planet is the perfect mass, has an atmosphere, and is within the HZ of it's star - that does not automatically mean it will support advanced biological life (by advanced, I d...

Upcoming Astronomy & Science Events - and YOU

Today was the first time I ever heard of " Asteroid Day ". It marks the eve of the Tunguska explosion, widely held to be the work of a bolide. It is a global resolution maintained by the UN in order to raise awareness about asteroids and what humans can do to protect the Earth from a futur...

28838 There's a candidate planet that may be close to confirmation. It's a 1.1±0.1 Earth-radius planet in a 365.4 day orbit around a 0.97 solar-radius sun. If it is confirmed, it would be the _first_ true Earth-analogue. Discovered by Kepler but no ID yet, maybe will be Kepler-16nn. Located at 2MAS...

Unless there was a significant presence of dust or aerosols in the air, a heady atmosphere of O2 and CH4 would be colorless and visibly indistinguishable from our "normal" air of O2 and N2.

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

28760 Blind speculation with no evidence to suggest they would. Indeed. I am not realistically saying that they would, but rather invoking the possibility to be in line with the discussion of a future civilization on this planet discovering our ancient remains. The time period between civilizations...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

28744 So to burst your bubble, if a future civilization happens, nothing we have done is going to be detected and they will be just as blindly bumbling as we are. I agree with you on the blind and bumbling part. But as for whether or not a future civilization could detect our past presence on this ...
