Found this children's Soviet era geographic atlas among some books that my wife has from her childhood:


OMG this is my first "scientific" book. It certainly made me interested in astronomy, I was very sad what "space" pages have so little information.
BTW, I really thought that those Interplanetary Stations "Mars" and "Venera" are actually stations, like train station, and me with my parents can visit them smile

Interesting, but I'm still a bit skeptical. There's a working "hoverboard" on Kickstarter:


Oh lol. I better would lite to donate for flying cars and pizza grower from the "Back to the future" smile

I'd prefer seeing "Mr. Fusion" getting funded instead. And we're running out of time. It's supposed to be on the market next year.

I saw recently a soviet masterpiece of animated science fiction.
The fact is that it's quite emotional and profund.

It's called "There Will Come Soft Rains"
There is a lot of good soviet short animated films in the internet:


Jeez! That was rough going.

Implemented a week or so ago, but still not finished (you may notice the old stars). Thin rotating accretion disk around the black hole at different exposures:


vs Interstellar movie:

Somehow SE future version(s) and this movie are soo connected cry

Thank You Space Engineer! You are truly awesome! And thank you Mr Nolan: You are truly awesome too! Imagine what SpaceEngineer could do if he had Nolan's team, NASA scientists and budget at his disposal surprised

I think that has more to do with reality than anything else. Such an effect has been known about for quite some time.

Yeah, the light ray pathing is not new at all. Interstellar's rendition isn't fully relativistically accurate either (no gravitational redshift, doppler shift, beaming, etc). But it still looks damn nice and is the closest to a realistic depiction we've ever had in a major film. It's cool that they hired a big name in space-time physics to help them out rather than just wing it or rehash what we've seen before in other popular media.

Also Kip Thorne from the wormholes in Contact (Carl Sagan)!

It's visually pleasing and all that, but I think there are some premises for that movie that I don't quite accept.

Even more dumb commentators than on youtube. I did not think this was possible.
