Our Solar System is somewhat “boring”, in a way – one star that barely moves, and the vast majority of planets having nearly circular/low eccentricity (still elliptical) orbits.

Since I already had the framework for simulating the Solar System, I decided to simulate the binary … Click To Read More

Solar System Simulation Series: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

As was promised in the previous post, an explanation of how my program’s logic worked was upcoming. Without further ado:

First, I needed code to actually generate the asteroids. I also wanted each asteroid … Click To Read More

Solar System Simulation Series: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

Like almost everything in this universe, nothing is perfect, including the planetary orbits of our solar system. Though some are more circular than others, all of them are ellipses/ovals, instead of perfect circles. My program … Click To Read More

Recent Announcement for the Detection of Gravitational Waves
