Avogadro’s number is about twice the number of stars in the observable universe.

:O

I love coincidences like this.

This was actually a very interesting read.

Covers predictions from 36000 years ahead, all the way to 10^10^10^10^10^1.1 years into the future.

Our universe. 

I’ve probably posted this before but it deserves re-posting every time. 

Search the sky like you would with your eyes, binoculars, or a telescope!

It’s ridiculously dynamic, you can see the constellations, the constellation’s art, different star cultures, you can see the major satellites around the Earth, nebulas, and more!

It starts with a “basic” set of stars to view, but going in to the configuration menu (by pressing F2), under the Tools tab you can download new catalogs and new stars to look at.

This is literally the best thing I’ve ever downloaded :D I recommend this to everybody. Go get it. Right now.

There’s an Einstein Cross out there somewhere, I just hope it’s in this software and I can find it :d

Other good programs include Celestia, and Space Engine. Both are available on their respective websites, or on SourceForge.

New Theme, Perhaps?

Anyone aware of any cool space related themes? (Edit: Doctor Who themes definitely welcome ;D)

I’m kind of bored with the theme I have right now.

Space is all big and shit, yo. I know most people are already aware of this, but sometimes you just need to put things in perspective.
