Hi !

I'm back here ! The new website, the work progress, lots of improvements. Good job team !

Sorry for the long absence, I have a new job, and time for adaptation was quite long for me, but I'm back, and I'm still working a bit on new mods. I will post soon my mod page again !

Great to have you back! Can't wait to see your mods. :)

I went to the March for Science today in Washington DC. I got to see Bill Nye and Derek Muller (Veritasium) aswell as many other scientists and performers. It was an interesting event.

I went to the March of Science in Copenhagen, somehow it felt like 30 minutes although it probably was something like 2 hours long :)

Saw it everywhere, all over the world :)  Any idea why they combined Earth Day with Science Day? It might have created more impact to have the two marches on different days ;-)

Hopefully none of the corporate "scientists" involved with creating DDT or other dangerous pesticides, or the ones who work for the fossil fuel industry and were doctoring climate change research (or doing similar things with pharmaceutical industry research)  or involved with making nuclear or other weapons or the ones the food industry employees to make fast food or soda/diet soda addictive, or the ones who harm animals were involved.  I like the climate change and environmental scientists who actually want to make the world a better place for all species- animal, plant and otherwise.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE science- I just don't like "scientists" who work for big corporations or the military and put selfish considerations ahead of protecting the whole planet.

Looks like I may have an opportunity to do astrophysics research over this summer, using visible and x-ray observations of galactic clusters to help test the Lambda-CDM model of cosmology.  Neat!

Most people don't realize it, but they actually launch a new space station every few weeks because this keeps happening.

I know it is not off-topic, but...how do I create a decent inary star system? I followed the tutorial in the manual, but it just does not appear. Can you help me or at least upload an example script or something?

Here you can find a 'A very simple tutorial on how to create a solar system'.

If that does not help, post your script.

I only copied your codes, but the StarBaryCenter itself appears as a blue hypergiant...
