Hello everyone, I'm a long time Space Engine enthusiast and amazed by how far the project has come so far. I'm really glad there are people out there who manage to put this together, it's so endlessly intriguing.

Hello everyone; I've always been a big fan of astronomy and for me space engine, since I discovered it in 2011, it was a dream come true. Since then I have been constantly following the software development and I am really happy to see how much progress has been made over the years.

If I select a random star from the screen, I can find information about it (by pressing "I" key), but that information does not include what galaxy the star is in.  How can I find that?

What? Do you mean the star browser? Because if you do, then the star you selected will be in the radius that the star browser says, you can change the size of the radius by typing it in on the top left of the tab. If you mean that you just selected a star just by clicking on it, then that star will be in the galaxy your in because spaceengine only renders 100,000 stars at a time and every galaxy has more than 100,000 stars in it, so if you click on a star, then you are clicking on a star that is in the galaxy your in. To find the galaxy your in, just zoom out and click on the center of the thing that looks like well, a galaxy. Sorry if I misunderstood your question, but that's what seems to be what your asking. (PS) the "I" key brings up the "wiki" feature so it pretty much only gives you the information for THAT object.
I'm good when it comes to Physics, Algebra, Relativity, Space, and SpaceEngine. But I could still use a LOT of help on the things I still don't know. So I hope I get a lot of help on how all that works, here!

Heyo folks, like so many others long time lurker over here. I decided to get a bit involved with the SE community, so here I am. At the moment I'm most interested in the possibilities SE offers as a game engine, and I'll be trying to explore that in the gameplay section. Greetings from Holland!
