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 ...

28724 Right now we have a superbug infestation going on in our local hospitals (Candida Albans) that's resistant to all antibiotics and the state is worried people will find out what hospitals have it so they refuse to reveal the info and the media isn't even covering it outside of one station (WAB...

28704 Few weeks well spent, planets now look like planets and not cartoons Thank you so much for this. These planets look absolutely awesome! As someone who has a hobbiest's foundation in geology and spent years researching comparative planetology as a personal obsession, I can assure you that they...

New Members Introduction Thread

28700 Hi All, Although I'm new here, I use SE since years, what shows that I am quite fond of it and is my favorite astronomy software to date (though I used Celestia and Stellarium since their early days for quite some time). I am also a metalhead - my forum name is a reference to the song "T...

Suggestions & Feedback about the Website and Forum

Hey, erm, I'm having a weird problem. Yesterday I had posted twice on the forum, once in the "Your Space Engine Videos" thread and once in the "Future of Humanity & Intelligent Life in the Universe" thread. When I checked in today both posts are missing and there is no histor...

Your SpaceEngine Videos

Yeah, that is practically documentary-level material. In fact, it IS documentary level, since I've seen some otherwise top-notch astronomy films with absolutely terrible graphics. It yet again proves that SE has amazing potential for educational or entertainment applications.

Science and Astronomy Questions

28629 Is it possible to have planets with fresh water seas instead of salt water seas?.... And if so, how difficult would the circumstances be? To answer this, you must know why Earth's oceans are salty. The salt in ocean water is a mix of the minerals sodium, chloride, sulfate, magnesium, calcium,...
