  1. That’s why I put it in quotations. Once YouTube says that, you know they’re not going to give you a second thought, especially if you’re so far under 1 million subs like Matt. It’s a cheap way of letting you think they might do something when in reality they’re just going to forget you and focus on the money-making 10+ mil channels.
  2. Matt posted an update video: As you may have guessed, YouTube is doing nothing other than saying they’re going to “look into it”. SonyATV has also copyright claimed a few other videos that didn’t even have the “Dreams” song. But KSP content will continue regardless.
  3. I think it’s too old to be in r/all today. Maybe it was last night when it was nearing 10k upvotes. The next best option, surprisingly, is to make a meme about this and post it to r/Dankmemes. They sure love ripping apart companies/organizations/people that do terrible or stupid stuff (PETA saying Steve Irwin deserved his death, Disney saying no to Spider-Man being on a kid’s grave, J K Rowling giving us WAY too much Harry Potter info, etc). A good meme about YouTube’s flawed copyright system allowing for Sony to unfairly target a small creator (<500k subs) is sure to get plenty of
  4. Most or all of Matt Lowne’s KSP videos have been copyright claimed for a song that is supposed to be free to use. There’s a dangerous chance his channel could be terminated and his struggles could go unnoticed because it’s so small in the grand scheme of things. However, if the Reddit post about it gets enough upvotes, it might reach r/all and bring this to the attention of the Reddit community. 


  5. I recommend as many people as possible post this around: The more upvotes, the more likely it will get to r/all and get much needed attention. Matt’s channel isn’t big enough for it alone to get people to know about this issue
  6. Welp, I’m back...except without the best of news. Most of Matt’s KSP videos were copyright claimed by SonyATV, because apparently they’re claiming this song he uses in his intros is theirs, even though it came from a collection of copyright-free songs. He explains the situation here: This really shouldn’t be happening, but you know 2019 YouTube. They care more about money and looking good for other companies than being there for creators trying to make good content.
  7. The problem with a hydrogen envelope is that it would probably trigger a runaway greenhouse effect, and/or smother the “surface” under extremely high pressures that would make almost all life impossible.
  8. On Wednesday, two separate teams of astronomers released their findings about water vapor detected in the atmosphere of the temperate Super-Earth/Mini-Neptune K2-18b. Naturally, the press went nuts with this story. I’ve seen a lot of articles calling K2-18b a “rocky” and “habitable” planet, and several annoyed astronomers in response to said articles. The thing is, even though the detection of water clouds in a small habitable zone planet is a landmark discovery, it does NOT immediately prove that K2-18b is habitable. Let’s start with the basics...which are already a little confusing. Th
  9. I guess one of my wishes has been granted: I was hoping for an LHS 1140 b like planet (a gigantic temperate Super-Earth with >2g), and one of the few planets revealed in the Q&A does seem to fit this description. No hints to whether it orbits a red dwarf or a more Sun-like star.
  10. I’m not surprised about the lack of an atmosphere; orbiting closer to a feisty red dwarf than Callisto does to Jupiter, LHS 3844b is practically staring down the gun barrel of its star, and is subjected to far greater radiation than most other red dwarf planets. What I am surprised about is its relatively cool temperature. Yes, a day side temperature of ~1100 K is high, but the planet is orbiting so close to such a dense star that I expected significant tidal forces to warm LHS 3844b to higher temperatures, probably at least 1300-1500 K. There is currently no evidence of tidal forces melting p
  11. I hope we get some new systems that are based on known exoplanetary systems, like some around red dwarfs or with very compact orbits or with several habitable planets, maybe even analogues to nearby systems like Alpha/Proxima Centauri, LHS 1140, TRAPPIST-1, Tau Ceti, etc. The first glimpses of the new planets are already extremely promising (a ringed Super-Earth, tidally heated binary planets) and I hope there will be a large selection of unique places to go to.
  12. It looks like there will be a binary planet system being ravaged by each other’s tidal forces, and maybe a young star system with multiple ringed planets.
  13. This finally brought me back to the forums after....I don’t even know how long. I didn’t expect a full-fledged sequel to KSP, or the inclusion of interstellar travel, exoplanets, colonies, or multiplayer. I can’t wait to see what new systems and planets will be in the game!
  14. So, the center core was lost....again. I stand by my belief that SpaceX is cursed to never recover a Falcon Heavy center core.
  15. TESS is specifically avoiding the zodiac for its primary mission; however, maybe it could cover that area in its next mission extension. Also, here’s a new study about the potential habitability of the Teegarden planets: https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.07704 For Earth-like atmospheric properties, Teegarden b and c would have a wide but differing range of habitable locations. Teegarden b could have a mostly or entirely inhospitable day side with maximum temperatures reaching 550 K. However, the entire night side could be warm enough for liquid water, leaving any life without access to photo
  16. Ever since the seven Earth to sub-Earth sized planets of TRAPPIST-1 were announced all the way back in 2017, I was wondering if this system was unique, or if other tiny red dwarfs could host multiple small rock-dominated planets in temperate orbits. A new study of the M7 ultracool dwarf known as Teegarden’s Star using the CARMENES radial velocity instrument has revealed TRAPPIST-1 probably isn’t a fluke. Two planets, similar in mass to the largest TRAPPIST planets, have been found orbiting in the inner and outer boundaries of the system’s habitable zone, and the lead authors believe there migh
  17. Bad news: for some reason, I can’t downlod original Kepler data from MAST (the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes), so until I can fix that issue, I won’t be able to get to my KIC 12266812 analysis.
  18. I just re-calculated the parameters for the star and candidate using Gaia DR2 data and V and K magnitudes on ExoFOP, and the system looks even more incredible now. - Stellar Radius: 1.0095 (+/-0.0245)x Sun - Stellar Mass: 0.9935 (+/-0.0065)x Sun - Stellar Temperature: 5758 (+/-82) K - Luminosity: 1.00505x Sun - Semi-major Axis: 0.998102 AU - Equilibrium Temp: 255 K (the same as Earth!) - Insolation: 1.009x Earth KIC 12266812 and the planet candidate are just about identical to the Sun and Earth. Later today, I’ll take a look at the system with LcViewer
  19. I first heard about the game back in July/August 2014 before buying 0.90 at the end of the year. It wasn’t until a full year later — December 2015 — that I managed to finally update to 1.0.5, because I first got the game off of the original KSP website, not Steam. I still miss the planet-destroying double-claw glitch...
  20. I recently broke 800 hours on Steam. However, there were a good few weeks where I launched KSP from the file folder and not Steam, so who knows how much time I’ve actually clocked.
  21. 1.) The Clone Wars series 2.) Revenge of the Sith 3.) Solo 4.) Rebels series 5.) Rogue One 6.) A New Hope 7.) The Holiday Special 7.) The Empire Strikes Back 8.) Return of the Jedi 9.) The Mandalorian (when it comes out) 10.) Resistance Season 1 11.) The Force Awakens 12.) The Last Jedi 13.) Resistance Season 2 (when it comes out) 14.) The Rise of Skywalker (when it comes out) As you can tell, I’m a chronological order and animated series guy. I also wouldn’t really want to watch episodes I or II again, even tho
  22. Updates to the stock planets? A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.
  23. What would happen if you turn the knob on the Valve Guy’s head?
  24. I guess I should’ve worded it better. Yes, throwing your audience off guard is a great way to make a film more unexpected and interesting, but it depends on how you do it. You can either make it timeless like with the “I am your father” scene, or create more problems for how to continue the story.
  25. I don’t know what to say here that won’t get me torn apart by everyone who hates the sequels or TLJ or Disney-era Star Wars. I’m a very open minded SW fan, and it takes a lot for me to legitimately hate something. For example, I actually enjoyed TLJ. Did I agree with all the choices Rian Johnson made? No. Subverting audience expectations in the middle of a trilogy is a terrible idea and is just laying the groundwork for tons of people to get liquided off at you — which, as well all know, ended up happening. But do I let this ruin my viewing experience? Also no. The point is, I don’t let portio
