Interesting, looks like Vsauce is becoming it's own meme

Hello everyone! I hope everyone's had a great day so far. I would like to get some input on some questions.
1. Is the developer working on iMac support? I am really anxious to play this, but I cannot :(
2. If he is, any approximate guess for release? 
3. Lastly, the goal has been reached, yet mac support is not there, any answers?
4. Here is my system information, is it be good enough to run Space Engine?
Processor: 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 1024 MB

I am using a late 2013, 21.5 inch iMac. 

*I know I can't get SE, but still, I would like to know if my system is strong enough to take on the current requirements smoothly. 

THANKS:)!

Hi cavingada,
1. Mac and Linux porting will start when previous goals mentioned in Funding goals page will be completed, probably after version 1.0.
3. Again in Funding goals page:

Please note: these are approximate funding goals and some implemented functionality (marked with color). When a funding goal is met, it means that there is enough money to pursue that goal, not that the features of that goal have been implemented.

Unfortunately SpaceEngineer it's the only coder and there are still some features to be implemented as prerequisite before porting, not to mention that it makes more sense to start porting source code with a completely stable release than multiply the workload by developing from scratch a program for different platforms at the same time.

4. Given your hardware's capability, I assume you would be able right now of enjoying latest version of SpaceEngine, provided you're able to install Windows 7 with Boot Camp.
My very old Mac Mini with Boot Camp it's the best Linux machine I ever had.

Me too, although pigs will fly long before the date SE looks like that  :P

Anyway, it was so weird when I've seen that the second city was Verona. I've seen that road like everyday for five years without even caring, but I never though someone could find it so interesting to worth a travel of thousands miles just to see those things that seems so normal to me.

Not only is I Portoni della Brà a nice sight to see, so is most of Verona! I will never forget entering Piazza dei Signori and seeing the statue of Perseus holding the head of Medusa or is that the Piazza della Signoria? lol Maybe I must go again so I can remember a little better :)

I would guess more along the lines of 2030-ish :)

Most certainly not in 2017. Probably 2018-2019-ish ;)

I was just scavenging the Cassini data and I found this from 2009:

Two years ago today and I still don't think another eclipse can top this one.  Except perhaps the next one on 20th April 2061.

Sadly, while the eclipse happened it was cloudy weather in Copenhagen, so i didn't see it  :(

Partial eclipses aren't that bad to lose.  The difference between a 99% and 100% eclipse is greater than the difference between a 1% and 99% eclipse.
