  1. This mod adds the kerbalized version of the Gargantua System from movie Interstellar to your game! The main feature of the mod is the proper black hole/pulsar effects providen by a separate from Kopernicus plugin. So, let's take a look at the system! Kargantua - a supermassive black hole at 1573560320km distance from Kerbol. Gravity - 100g Radius - 80 000km Limmer - a large tidally locked Laythe-like planet. The 90% of the surface on this planet is covered with vast ocean, only The Great Volcano is exposed. Gravity - 1.4g Radius - 480km Namm - an icy planet without oxygen atmosphere but surprisingly covered with pine trees... Gravity - 0.62g Radius - 339km Pantagrool - a rapidly spinning pulsar Radius - 30km Gravity - 35.8g Admun - a desert planet with oxygen atmosphere Radius - 280km Gravity - 0.125g Jopa - a small asteroid that sometimes passes very close to Kargantua Radius - 5km Gravity - 0.0001341g Included mods: -Kopernicus -Scatterer -EVE DOWNLOAD: The mod: https://spacedock.info/mod/1255/Kargantua System [WIP] The volumetric disk patch: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bdsfwedxv5c25ji/VolumetricDisk.zip?dl=0 The license is CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 The DiskController plugin source: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dicbc5wfrhlay2j/DiskController.cs?dl=0 If you like my mods then you can leave a small donation, it really helps me out! Changelog: Hope you liked it
  2. What this mod does is add a black hole to your game! (Warp drive HIGHLY recommended.) Well. That's really it. Note that Kopernicus is REQUIRED: NOTE: For any fixes of the "Millers world." Please send me a message for the download. Aswell as the recompilement for 1.2 Download Link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B04xgDYdUNb0bWQ2RTZ4UDNTa28?usp=sharing 4GB texture download: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B04xgDYdUNb0RDdhM2dzSWs2aDA?usp=sharing
  3. amature therory proposal. BLack holes spinning through empty space until colliding with uncombined gases causin rapid heating resulting in the formation of new galaxy.
  4. Should I make a black hole mod? Or publish one in this case. Here is a image. http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/267224187171411630/1784154A2CA09F0D909787E7B4D616275A5C214C/
  5. Greeting Kerbals Reading stuff about space is kinda a passion for me, be it actual science discoveries, or sci-fi. A little while ago, I was tidying my house, and stumbled upon a 38 year old book, called "GREAT MYSTERIES: Mysteries of the Universe" By Stemman, Roy, Published by Aldus Books in 1978. Mind you, the book is 12 years older than me (it was a gift from my grand-ma) and while I strongly suspect it to be mostly "popular science" with some sci-fi toward the end, rather than actual science publication, it is still a great read. In this book, they relate theories about black holes, and one in particular caught my attention, be ready : "Scientist could possibly create tiny black holes within a terrestrial laboratory. However, If they happens to succeed, the result would be catastrophic; According to the British professor, John Taylor : "A black hole with a mass of 1600tonnes, if left alone, would quickly sink toward the center of our planet, eating it rather swiftly, and us with it. And for good measure, Taylor added :" Even if there is a single black hole in our galaxy, then our futur is really dark, as it'll end up devouring us all." (Please excuse me if it's not the exact same text, as mine is translated in french, so I had to re-translate in english for the forum ) (We of course know this is partly wrong, as we had unknowingly a supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy for billions of years, and by today's knowledge, it IS a fact, probably he meant on the long run, but we also do know that our sun will die out waaay before the milky way's black hole swallow us, sooo not really a problem, we also know that there is millions of smaller black holes everywhere in the galaxy, remnant of collapsed giant stars if I'm not wrong) They also suggest that if a spaceship could go through the Schwarzschild radius of a Black Hole without being reduced to space dust from the tidal forces, the spaceship would end up in a different universe. If the spaceship went through the same black hole he came from, it would end up in yet another universe, and another, and another, without being able to ever come back to it's origin. Keep in mind the following : "Our readers will understand that 'Black Holes' are purely the result of mathematical speculation, and is not based on any sort of evidence." which was probably true when the book was published. Given today's standard and knowledge about these mythical beasts, do you think a black hole weighting less than a Frigate class warship, could survive hawking radiation and eat through the earth ? (hmm, let me rephrase : What if a proton suddenly weighted 1600tonnes, would it become a self sustainable black hole ?) How about black holes being wormholes toward another universe ? (no this isn't another OMAGAD LHC IS GONNA DOOM US ALLL!!!1111)
  6. I was going to put this in cool sciency stuff, but . . . . . Heres a question, if a black hole is not exactly at the center of rotation of a galaxy, is it a polynary stellar system? sort of like alpha-centauri, except having a central star it has a central BH.
  7. I've been playing with Space Engine, and the new black holes show warping realistically. I have been experimenting, flying by and into black holes, and I found that the universe seems to invert itself as you fall into it, and you see a disc with all the stars and around you is blackness. Then the disc shrinks to nothing. Here is a series of images showing a descent: My question is: Is this the event horizon? Or is this the event horizon? If I shined a laser towards the disc here: Would the laser escape? Clearly light can enter this far, but am I actually inside the black hole, past the point of no return? Space Engine indicates that I'm still some distance from the black hole's surface, but it's a little wonky with these objects.
