    Another One For Your Science Staff: Stellarium v0.10.5

    Information about the product:

    Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

    It is being used in planetarium projectors. Just set your coordinates and go.

    In version 0.10.5

    Sky

    * default catalogue of over 600,000 stars
    * extra catalogues with more than 210 million stars
    * asterisms and illustrations of the constellations
    * constellations for twelve different cultures
    * images of nebulae (full Messier catalogue)
    * realistic Milky Way
    * very realistic atmosphere, sunrise and sunset
    * the planets and their satellites

    Interface

    * a powerful zoom
    * time control
    * multilingual interface
    * fisheye projection for planetarium domes
    * spheric mirror projection for your own low-cost dome
    * all new graphical interface and extensive keyboard control
    * telescope control

    Visualisation

    * equatorial and azimuthal grids
    * star twinkling
    * shooting stars
    * eclipse simulation
    * skinnable landscapes, now with spheric panorama projection
    I have already deployed Celestia [Shatters.Net] as I think many of us might have done. This is somewhat different. I have downloaded it and installed it on my home laptop and it looks pretty good.

    For those who are interested in this subject it could be a useful addition to the network.

    Download link: Stellarium v 0.10.5

    Hope you like it. I did.

    [Yet] Another One For Your Science Staff: Anatomy Of A Black Hole [Shockwave]

    Link: Anatomy Of A Black Hole

    OK. Bit of a 'one trick pony' but could be useful for science staff who are interested in presenting on this topic.
