So my idea is to do some UI work on the fantastic open source cosmos explorer, Celestia. I can’t divulge all the details of my research topic as it’s not fully thought-through yet, but you can guess that it will be the natural outcome of my recent musings.
I proved today that I can modify and build a local version of Celestia 1.6.1x. Therefore my idea is proven to be feasible :)
Here’s a little video of my work today – running Harold Schmidt’s Nine Planets Rotational Period Comparison script.
