Do you learn with SE & its community?

17781 I'd love to see that incorporated somehow as well. As amazing as Space Engine is I always have to remind my self that it is the work of one developer. It's pretty amazing we have what we have but yes, more science please. :) Hey jadestar! I know, it's hard to believe one person can do so much...

Do you learn with SE & its community?

17278 SpaceEngine doesn't have yet many standard planetarium tools, but they're in the TODO list. The recent implementation of analytical models for computing Solar System orbits it's a big leap in that direction. As for accuracy, well it depends. I still giggle from time to time for this post (fro...

Thank you for sharing your story RE recommending SE as a teaching tool, and I appreciate you providing examples of other resources that you might also consider in similar situations.

Talk to me about SE as a community

14667 I heard a bunch of people got sick!  I wonder if it was the food?  Also heard there is some big news coming out of the ESA, though haven't read exactly what yet. This is the kind of thing I had in mind. http://revolutionarygamesstudio.com/ Space Engine is also delving into the VR arena, and t...

Space chats with your friendly neighbourhood anthropologist!

A-L-E-X, You make some really great points about the different ways in which using social media affects or feeds into our awareness. I thought about what you said in terms of these key words - do you think this is a fair distinction? ⋅ Accessibility (we can access more different content fr...

Talk to me about SE as a community

Hi A-L-E-X! Oh my god did I catch the con-plague. Completely wiped and sick as anything for over a week now, phew! While it didn't look like anyone was able to get very close to Elon (and no question-time this year either, he shot off stage as soon as the presentation was done), I think everyone was...

Space chats with your friendly neighbourhood anthropologist!

Hi A-L-E-X - it's always so wonderful to hear your thoughts and perspectives! 14068 I think we're entering a new era of awareness, with access to so much information, you get a better idea of what's going on and can better prepare for the future.  Humanity has had to learn that rather than fight the...

Space chats with your friendly neighbourhood anthropologist!

13964 Were you ever on either of Paul Carr's podcasts (The Wow! Signal or The Unseen Podcast)? Your name sounds familiar.  BTW: I told you this in response to your community survey but I'm an astronomy undergrad at the University of Washington who hopes to become an astrobiologist and also a woman ...

Hi ettore_bilbo, A-L-E-X, & jadestar! Thanks so much for the messages! Apologies for the delay in my response - the IAC opened yesterday, and things are all happening very fast! Wish me luck in catching Elon! Also a pretty cool announcement - Australia is *finally* getting its own space agency! ...

Talk to me about SE as a community

Hey Salvo, Thank *you* for your kind words as well! I'm hoping I can keep learning and improving with you all as I go! I take your point about the different ways of using (and probably frequency of use as well) different platforms to supplement SE experience & participation. I'd love to know wha...

Talk to me about SE as a community

Hi Salvo & Doc - thanks so much for the amazing responses, you've raised some really interesting points and given me lots to think about! It seems like there is a sense that SE is a small community - because the program is not very widely known yet, and also because it is a very small group of p...

Hi guys! Danielle the space & new media anthropologist here to pick your brains about space, SE, and how you use it! If we haven't met yet, I'm a researcher exploring the use of social and new media for various projects in the space industry and in its networks and publics, and Space Engine is o...

Do you learn with SE & its community?

@Salvo - That's fair enough! Are there other videos or content creators that you do follow or like, that are more focussed, or more scientifically accurate, or more educational? What works for you and why, what's interesting and engaging, is all super interesting!

Space chats with your friendly neighbourhood anthropologist!

A-L-E-X - it sounds as though you must have a pretty rounded set of experiences and perspectives! Personally I tend to think that breadth and variety can be really helpful in approaching any topic with nuance, and I agree with you there - there are lots of really interesting people here with so many...
