Hello! I'm new here and I absolutely love Space Engine! happy I first saw it on a Youtube video about a month and a half ago and decided I wanted to try it and I got hooked on it ever since. During my journeys, I've encountered many beautiful planets as well as some terrifying ones especially one that was orbiting a brown dwarf. It looked scary from space because it had a blood red atmosphere and looked like the worst place to live, especially from the view from the surface. Anyways, today I decided to head over to the Large Magellanic Cloud and I came upon a particular system that had 2 planets with life. So I thought, "Cool!" and traveled to that system. To my surprise, these 2 planets were orbiting each other! surprised Now I have seen double planets such as gas giants or terras but I have never seen double planets that contain life, let alone both of them! Maybe this is not new to some people but it is to me. One of them has a lot of land mass but no ocean and it only has a few seas and lakes while the other planet with the thicker atmosphere has oceans. Also, both planets have solar eclipses every day that cover a very large portion of the planet. Both planets rotate and are not tidally locked unlike our moon.

So I want to is if this could even be possible in the real universe. Would the gravity of both planets have a negative effect to each other? I know that our moon affects the tides here on Earth but a planet this big and this close to it's neighbor, won't that cause the tides to be extremely large like giant tidal waves? Also, won't volcanic events be more frequent as well as earthquakes? I'm no astronomer or geologist but I'm just a little curious of the circumstances if life would evolve in such a planet such as these two.

Technically in the engine, it says the planet on the outer edge is the moon of the other one but they are very close in size. Both planets are a little larger than than the earth by diameter. The one closest to the center with the thicker atmosphere is 13,092.36 km in diameter and the one on the outer edge is 13,0001.8 km. Plus, both planets rotate.

Wouldn't it be fascinating to live on one of these planets. Everyday you can look up at the sky know that you are not alone. smile I took some screenshots to show the beauty of these 2 planets.



Kind of looks like a mountainous jungle.

My favorite snapshot from this world. smile














Here is one snapshot with an eclipse.

Welcome to the forum MGL567. Nice find! Can you post the location code of this system?

Sorry but I don't have the coordinates. sad I knew I should have written it somewhere knowing how special this was. But the good thing is I found 2 other planets similar to these only they orbit each other much closer than the ones above. I just clicked a random galaxy and star. The star said it had 2 planets with life so I went to it and BAM! there they were orbiting each other. I was a little shocked to see how close they orbit each other. I took some snapshots of the planets. smile

Temperate Oceania With Life: RS 0-1-7-1601-25147-9-61491883-4 3




















I made this one my desktop background. cool

Look back in your log (Tab key) and find the system there.

When you find a place you like, save it in your Places in the F6 menu.

Also, you can take screenshots with the HUD displayed using Ctrl-F11

Remember the past times when we looked to Mars and we saw canyons, and we conclude that this is a planet with Life.

To have a planet with life in the sky could be amazing. Imagine if the two planets are civilised, they can exchange light signals before they build probes and computers ! They can discuss without seeing them !





Want some music of mine ? Please go here !

I can imagine plenty of bloodshed if they are like humans (or humanoid type race) and both worlds have resources (oil, water etc...) sad

I found a binary planet with life close by in the Milky Way, around a relatively nearby catalog star. It is one oceania and one terra.



The terra is slightly smaller than Mars, slightly more massive, and has a 10x thicker atmosphere, though still too thin for humans to live in.
