I'd kind of really like a model of just one particular solar system, but buying & downloading universesandbox just for that is probably a bit excessive!

and this is kind of me getting distracted from what I intended to writ about anyhow!

Hmmm. :roll: 8O

OK, the system I wanted to model is HD3167, and I wanted to do something with it almost as soon as I heard about it last year.

It happens to be first ever solar system observed (by us) with planets on perpendicular orbits. Such a contrary and unique system immediately made me think of the neurodiversity spectrum, and whether we could get it named for us! #3167HD4Diversity #Star4ASD #Star4ND

Not just a crappy bought name, but full on recognition from IAU because we as neurodiverse people don't have a cultural attachment to any star, but I can't think of any star more appropriate!


More on why I think it is cool and stuff, and more images, and a petition even!

This is another of my attempts at drawing it, deliberately skewed now...

I have actually tried modelling it myself in Universe Sandbox, but I am just too astro-simple I'm afraid.

I had to look up what some of the words meant to even try.

Halp!

Actually managed to get a few models reasonably accurate.

This one is kinda compacted a bit on purpose!

Even my best one is not perfect, there seems to be so many measurements you need for accurate models.

I have a feeling HD 3167 is so far away we can't know all the details.

We only know so much about it because two of the three planets transit the star, making it easier to get their deets.
