SE Object Extremes

Alright folks, it's here! The largest star - RS 8403-452-0-0-75, weighing in at 161.1 AU across! There's a nice view of it and its home galaxy from a nearby orbiting body:

Patch 0.9.8.0e

Mouthwash , we have talked about this in this thread long before (and also in the Work in progress thread): FastFourierTransform: 12059 I've just saw the precession of Mercury's perihelion. It's beautifull. But the problem is that it uses the DE436 theory that goes from the year 1550 to the year 25...

Patch 0.9.8.0e

Look more carefully. Rotation rate is just 9,5 arcminutes per century, ie on a valid time span of the DE436 model (1000 years) it rotates for just 1,5° I don't understand what you're saying. It's two million CE and the orbit hasn't visibly budged at all. I remember that at max speed (prepatch) it m...

Patch 0.9.8.0e

It is not, in a valid time frame of the orbital solution model (years 1550 to 2650). I don't see any change whatsoever in Mercury's orbit even if I run max speed. Which is strange, because before the ephemerides patch, the perihelion and aphelion rotated around the sun at regular intervals. Which i...

Work progress 0.9.8.1 = 0.9.9.0

Am I the only one who found some of those images actually realistic? The canyon ones and rocky terrains were especially realistic to me. Would it hold up as a modern game setting (aside from lack of vegetation/objects)? w4IulV7OW4I 5U4UicIIz9k In my opinion, no. But it's getting close (and hey, it'...

"Virtual particle pairs in the vacuum are generated and self annihilate never violating mass/energy conservation.  On the edge of a black hole's event horizon one of the virtual particles falls in and the other does not, this means the black hole loses a minuscule amount of mass in this intera...

"Because procedural generation of realistic textures of rock, pebbles, grass, sand and others is way too and expensive"

"Matter inside an event horizon will never escape.  No particle inside a horizon ever leaves the horizon.  Quantum mechanics does not  say that this is not true.  If you fall into a black hole, you will not come back out again.  Nor will an electron.  Or a photon.  The uncertainty principle do...

How galaxies/nebulae actually look.

Huh, looks like I was wrong. After looking in the search browser, it appears that the stars above and below the bulge are actually an order of magnitude sparser than the stars in the disk. They looked almost identical when I was flying around them. :?

The most ambitious simulation game ever.

A few years ago, I came up with the most complete simulation game of human interaction ever conceived, inspired by this thread on Civfanatics about what the perfect game would be. I believe that politics can be simulated completely in a 3D setting, with a real, emergent civilization consisting of in...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Answer me this: there are several arbitrary values that allow the universe to have complexity, structure, and life. It seems incredibly unlikely that we stumbled upon the right ones the first time. The only alternatives are that (A) some higher entity created/simulated our universe or (B) there are ...
