      An overview of a Moon phase simulator created with the Blender Game Engine. The simulator attempts to address a common misconception about the phases of the Moon by representing the system to scale in distance and size.

          We recently hosted the Utah Science Olympiad. I was in charge of Sumo Bots. I needed a timer application with some specific features. I couldn't find anything that met my needs on the internets, so I made my own with the Blender Game Engine.

                This is our first try at producing a Science on a Sphere video (equirectangular, Earth tilted 23.5º). We're still figuring out the process, but it's not too shabby... This shows Earth tilted at 23.5º (that's why the motion looks sinusoidal). See http://vimeo.com/9634218 for a 3D mockup. Size reduced to 512x256 from 2048x1024. Made with Blender and Hugin. No Sound. blender.org hugin.sourceforge.net Produced by Ron Proctor - Ott Planetarium / SAVI http://weber.edu/planetarium http://savi.weber.edu

                    Black holes have a ridiculous amount of mass, so they are the "heavyweights" of spacetime distortion. You can still orbit a black hole, just like you can orbit a star or planet. The big difference with black holes is that they are so massive that there is a distance from the black hole (called the event horizon) from which the escape speed is greater than the speed of light. This means that nothing, not even light can escape. Because of this, the black hole itself can only be "seen" by gravitational lensing.
