Asteroids, meteors, and meteorites

35944 Maybe some parts of the planet are more favorable for these?  Has any research been done into that I wonder? A lot of research indeed and everything seems to corroborate that they indeed fall everywhere on Earth. Since the fall of a meteor doesn't depend on the particular point of Earth's rot...

What and outstanding job Vladimir. This code is a piece of art. There are many things that might be of interest here that I don't know where to start. Kudos to you and the entire SE team.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

35922 I remember talking to Vlad about the H-R diagram and he liked the idea of including a small H-R diagram for stars in the field of view and when you mouse over individual stars it would highlight its position on the diagram and you could also mouse over a speck on the diagram and it would high...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

35838 In my opinion, respecting what the HR diagram tells us on the evolution of the star is quite imporant. It would greatly improve the consistency of the SE universe. It would indeed, but there are several reasons why this is currently an outstanding scientific endevour. It would result in publi...

Programing this is a truly amazing feat. Thank you, as always, for such an incredible job. I'm concerned with the mutual shadowing of the different objects in the rings. That might be a fundamental feature of such scenes in real life, but possibly a CPU killer and an imposible programing goal. I Hop...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

I now see that most of the points addressed by Captain Disilussion and Phil Plait are taken from this thread: https://www.metabunk.org/threads/fake-ufos-casting-shadows-on-the-moon-ovni-sur-la-lune-2020-03-26.11185/ In my opinion the sudden stop of the atmospheric perturbations is enough to end this...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

35770 Actually a pretty well made video.  What gives it away, besides the extremely unlikely suggestion that spaceships several km in size fly over the Moon, is their speed. Indeed it is a very well made piece of fakery. Captain Disillusion did a very good video explaining and reproducing this one....

Future of space engine

35768 I have a baby, so can't work 24/7 like before:) Congratulations Vladimir! Such good news. Also thanks for all the hard work as always. Having a team is a complicated thing indeed; teams are good to make things quicker and to allow for improvements in the workflow, but first, the team has to l...

How to make maps for Earth (Like I did with Hawaii or like Klud with Grand Canyon)

Khorrah ,This is an astonishing work! Thank you so so much. I've been waiting for a tutorial like this for a long time. No wonder no one could replicate Klud's outstanding mods. There are so many small details and steps that have to be correctly executed.... Thank you a lot. I hope this inspires ot...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Those are some really bad news. I hope that the mortality rate is not also higher (as is been concluded for now), but still it might yield more deaths that the previous coronavirus. Hopefully the vaccines work also for this variant and hopefully the people that had the first variant gain some inmuni...

Wowowow! That was awesome. Congratulations.
For some reason the intro reminds me of some "analog horror" clips like the ones from Gemini Home Entertainment.

Space; How did you get interested in it?

35373 Hello everybody! My story is not as romantic as stargazing in nature or anything like that. I just accidentally saw a few articles and videos on YouTube that hooked me with something. It was only about 6 years ago. But now I'm 30 and I try to follow the news from the space industry. I guess I...

Science and Astronomy Videos

I started to watch this YouTube series about general relativity with some skepticism. The goal of the series is to give a somehow accurate view in just 8 videos (of less than 15 minutes each), with intuitive and simple examples. I watched the first two videos and thought: either he won't make it in ...
