Qr Bbpost I wondered if I could actually resolve the spectrum of a plasma using nothing but an old audio CD-R. Turns out, yes! Sometimes high-tech problems have low-tech solutions.

Just amazing. Do you mind if I show it to some collegues?

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

34820  I dont think you can make that kind of comparison in any kind of intellectually honest way I mean, unicorns are quite plausible in this universe, they don't violate any physical laws and make quite a lot of sense in biology. Even in our planet evolution could have brought them, they are just...

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

34804 I just wanted to know approximately how frequent updates were released. Many new users ask this same question. You can find even in this thread some examples. The answer is always the same. It will be ready when it is ready. I know it sounds rude, but bare in mind that this project was starte...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

There are many "multiverse theories", which one should be picked? Also if what you want is just a new bunch of galaxies outside the square cube of SpeceEngine this is not such an improvenet anyway. The multiverse is an hypothesis (many in fact) that has yet not been supported by any eviden...

The Gaia Mission

34667 Thanks, this explains the different sizes of the add-ons, as I have them all saved.  The original DR1 5 million star add on was 400 MB, while the DR2 5 million star add on was less than 200 MB. This is not possible. Let me clear some possible misunderstandings (If there are any): Gaia DR1 (da...

The Gaia Mission

34639 Hi, whats the difference between these and what I downloaded from Phunnie?  I actually tried both his 30 million and 15 million star add-ons and while I found the 30 million add-on workable, there was some graphics flickering from time to time so I switched to the 15 million star add-on which...

The Gaia Mission

Well, as many of you might know by now, we broke the 3rd Gaia Data release in two pieces, the first of them, EDR3 is now scheduled for December 3 at 12:00 CET , and the full DR3 release will happen somewhere in 2022 (the date is still unknown). What should we expect from the December release? Well, ...

Last night I was able to capture some images of Mentor-2, an american classified geosynchronous satellite used for illegal espionage on European citizens. I've been trying to catch it for a month now and I finally got it. We know about the existence of the satellite because of a group of amateur sat...

33915  I hope that is a kind of reasoning that doesn't make it through peer review. Indeed it is surprising. I love these kind of speculations but when the authors publish them in the corresponding journal and with the corresponding premises (like explicitly explaining this is wild guesses). The fa...

Indeed it has been published in the ASS. If anyone is interested, their research can be read here . Taking their assumptions they get a final value of 36_{-32}^{+175} extraterrestrial civilizations in our galaxy. 33908 the Brits ran some sort of cosmic evolution program on a supercomputer No, they d...

33299 I believe in alien abductions, the supernatural and all that. If you disagree with me, that's perfectly fine but this is what I believe. I've just added the last answers to the spreadsheet. It's perfect with what you answered Cantra . The aim of this poll is not to know the truth about the is...

Qr Bbpost Big thanks to Kexitt for making the diffuse and height map of the Earth of this era and his permissions to publish the mod.

This is a beautiful addition. Thank you so much. I've been waiting to learn how to properly do a texture pack for several eras of Earth history. This is great

Perfect. The poll is also on imgur right now and I'm going to extend it somewhere else so this is just to tag from which community each answer came from (not to make any elitist disctinction because that's nonsese) just in case we reach enought answers to have some in depth results about where peopl...
