Greetings.

I have made an addon that adds the millisecond pulsar PSR J1719-1438 and its known planetary companion, PSR J1719-1438b, nicknamed the "Diamond Planet" due to it's carbon composition and high density. It is an addon I made a year or two ago, and it hasn't been changed since. Here are some screenshots:

I know, the texture is very basic, but I'm not very good at making textures that aren't based off of already created textures. If only I could get a better texture...

Here is the download link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5A59f3et_cJLUxZeE1DZG5RdDg

If there is anything you think needs changed, please let me know.

Enjoy!

Thanks CM1215!

It's about time that we put more efforts into millisecond Pulsars! On the one hand, there is the demand of improved visual rendering. Cham has previously explored plenty of possibilities.

On the other hand, however, these pulsars provide an amazing audible experience:

The interesting fact is that these pulsars usually emit sounds in the frequency range audible by humans. If there are many such pulsars acting together, we can expect to hear amazing concerts! Millisecond pulsars are typically located at known, spacially separated positions in the cores of globular clusters.

The real fun starts once the 3D positional sound functionality of Qt >5.2, is implemented, since then a 3D impression of the various orchestrating sound emitters comes in addition. ;-) Since celestia.Sci builds without a single warning with the latest Qt 5.9.1, 3D positional sound is available already in celestia.Sci!

Here is some interesting material from
  • the Univ. Manchester,
    Jodrell Bamk Centre for Astrophysics,
    School of Physics and Astronomy:

Just listen to some real sound recordings here:

How about this one?

or this pleasing concert from a bunch of emitters in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae
http://www.jb.man.ac.uk/research/pulsar ... 1-8000.wav

And that's some info about the institute:
http://www.jb.man.ac.uk/aboutus/
http://www.jodrellbank.manchester.ac.uk/people/

In case you missed it, see also my older thread about "Pulsar Jazz" ;-)

Note that plenty of actual positions of such pulsars are known. What is still needed is a good graphical representation, implementing all scientifically known features of such pulsars without being too "artistic"....


Cheers,
Fridger

This sounds really cool! It will be very interesting to have a Celestia with sounds! I am very anxious for when Celestia.Sci is released. I wish you good luck with your coding. ;)

Apart from that, what did you think of the addon itself?

Celestia with sounds already exists over in celestiaproject.net! The special feature I am referring to is 3D positional sound...Multi-tonal Super-Stereo so to speak;-) It's part of the Qt library that we all use for achieving cross-platform performance.

Hard to say at this stage: a proper rendering of pulsars and the orbiting planet is not clear to me. The accoustic features of millisecond pulsars were missing.
