Generating a Star System

Within the procedurally-generated galaxy, our in-house “solar system generator” allows us to generate stars which use an accurate type-density system, and seed planets that are condensed at naturalistic constitutions of elements and atmospheres from accurately captured gas over a complete stellar life cycle: from proto-planets to barren balls of rock, soon to be destroyed in the death-throes of an ancient star.

Billions and Billions

“It’s hard to talk about the Cosmos without using big numbers. I said “billion” many times on the Cosmos television series, which was seen by a great many people. But I never said “billions and billions.” For one thing, it’s too imprecise. How many billions are “billions and billions”? A few billion? Twenty billion? A hundred billion? “Billions and billions” is pretty vague. When we reconfigured and updated the series, I checked—and sure enough, I never said it.” ― Carl Sagan, Billions & Billions: Thoughts on Life & Death at the Brink of the Millennium   How many billions? 400

Galaxy Generation! — Tuesday, December 8, 2015

UPDATE TIME Hello Mjolnir fans, followers, and supporters. It’s been quite a while but we’ve got a series of great updates for you. We’ll be making a few more update posts over the course of this week following this one, each one slightly bigger than the one before. Several months back we began exploring methods for generating the massive playable galaxy for our main project, Galaxy In Flames. We’re proud to announce that after a lot of stress testing, iterations, hard teamwork, and ingenuity are starting to finally pay off. We had a great start with a billboard quad based

Double time-reversal asymmetry could explain weird material behavior

Double time-reversal asymmetry could explain weird material behavior From ArsTechnica:   “One of the fundamental ideas in physics is the existence of broken symmetries. One famous broken symmetry is the Higgs mechanism, which leads to the prediction of one or more Higgs bosons. In materials, broken symmetries of different sorts lead to magnetism, superconductivity—and a bit of strange behavior that has puzzled physicists for three decades. In one particular material, electrons behave as though they are much more massive than usual, and respond very differently to magnetic fields.”   Read the rest here >>>     The article ends with:
