Nebulae?
« on: November 28, 2013, 04:14:22 PM »
So I just made what appeared to be a Nebula, and I'm not quite sure how. Either way, I'm very amazed by it!
Here's what I did in steps, and I want to know if anyone can determine what caused the nebula to form when I unpaused the simulation:

1. Loaded a new star in a blank project
2. Changed stars mass to 2 times that of the sun
3. Radius changed to 902020 km instead of 702020 km
4. Clicked zero velocity

When I then played the simulator, the star disappeared. What came out was a cloud of green and blue, which expanded rather quickly before losing its colour. Here's a screenshot (the circle in the middle indicated Barnard's Star, which I placed after in an attempt to re-enact the nebula- to no avail.)

The stars seen very sensitive to input and if it becomes unstable it'll just go nova. Stars will also live out their life cycle on their own if you set the simulation to a very high speed.

Whether the dust of the supernova will be affected by gravity and either become dust rings around a planet, or form a baby star. We have no idea :o

Is it me or when the star die, i don t see a supernova but just like a small explosion (wich freeze there (the game don t freeze))?

I see that too. Except only when the star supernovas due to aging. I think it might just be a placeholder.

What did you do to get here? Cause that is not what I get when I supernova a star.

I think he's referring to a planetary nebulae and not a supernova but I could be wrong.

that's the solar system simulation but the sun exploded cause i changed the age of the star to 15.00 M years and increased time speed,it expands as it loses it color and when becomes grey stops expanding and all the planets are frozen

The sun does not go supernova. It sheds off its outer layers. You need a bigger star to get a supernova.
