Request for planet creation etc....

Post #1by kristoffer » 14.11.2011, 12:49

could someone maybe create the planet Cybertron from Transformers?

First info:
Cybertron was located in Alpha Centauri, but was later thrown out of orbit and sent wandering through the galaxy
maybe we can create an xyz, and show that it is flowing out of Alpha Centauri system

here some pictures:

Moved it to here as this is the more appropirate forum for such a request. The other forum was about Celestia Program Development.

Okay will remember it, the other times, I am posting requests

Kepler telescope has confirmed the first habitable planet. the planet orbit the sun-like star Kepler-22, and the planet is 2.4 times the size of Earth. It is inside the "habitable zone"

Here's a very rudimentary add-on for the star and it's planet. Unzip to your extras folder, and go to Kepler-22. (If you like, you can also compare it's orbit with those in our solar system by removing the .DIS extension from the extra SSC.)
Kepler-22.zip

Note that, although this planet is in the habitable zone of it's star, if the estimates given so far regarding it's Mass ( < 34.9613 X Earth) and radius (2.6832 X Earth) turn out to be accurate, then this planet would certainly not be "habitable" by us, as it would have a surface gravity of nearly 5g's.

It would need a radius more like 6 x earth's in order to be a comfortable place to live. (Don't buy a ticket or stamp your passport just yet! :wink:)

So, possible habitable for other races, not humans
That would be exciting

Hmmm....
... Not sure if I'd like to meet up with a race that has evolved in 5 g's (given the human race's propensity for getting into fights! )

If there was no complex life, could the g-forces possibly be negated by spinning the planet faster? Or would spinning at that speed tear the planet apart?

Does someone know where the Pangaea map is?

The map of the Earth 250 million years ago?

Has someone created a map of it, so I can use it in Celestia?

Cassini has found atmosphere around Saturn's moon Dione. It has oxygen




A NASA spacecraft circling Saturn has discovered a wispy oxygen atmosphere on the ringed planet's icy moon Dione, but you wouldn't want to live there. For one thing, you wouldn't be able to breathe — Dione's atmosphere is 5 trillion times less dense than the air at Earth's surface, scientists say.

Dione's atmosphere was detected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, which spotted an ultra-thin layer of oxygen ions so sparse that it is equivalent to conditions 300 miles (480 kilometers) above Earth. On Dione, there is one oxygen ion for every 2,550 cubic feet (90,000 cubic meters), but it's still enough to qualify as an atmosphere, Cassini mission scientists announced Friday (March 2).

I'm maybe going to make a texture of Earth, how it looks like in the year 2149(inspiration from the tv series Terra Nova)



This is how it looks like in Terra Nova

Maybe I can do it with photoshop or something
