On June 19, 2022, NASA announced the “Planetary Simulator” game.Super Planet CrashReleased for free. In Super Planet Crash, we aim to create a planetary system by touching the screen, but it is said that the game will end easily if you don’t consider the gravity of the planet, so you actually played that.
Access Point: 2022 June 19 – Game: Super Planet Crash
You can access Super Planet Crash by clicking on the link above. In the initial state, the star is fixed in the center, and the planet revolves around it.
Click on the screen and the planet will start moving from the clicked position. The white circle drawn on the outer surface of the planet indicates the position 2 AU (1 AU is the distance from the Sun to Earth) away from the star, and the “planet jumps off the white line” “planets collide with each other or with the star” if any of the conditions are met “Yes”, the game ends. In Super Planet Crash we will place multiple planets and aim to avoid the game ending until the “years” in the top right reach 1000.
On the left side of the screen, you can select the size of the planet among 5 types. From top to bottom, the sizes are “Earth”, “Ice Giant”, “Giant Plan”, “Brown dwarf” and “Dwarf star”. And the larger the planet, the greater the score. This time, it placed a planet the size of a brown dwarf close to the star.
Super Planet Crash simulates the gravitational pull of a planet, with larger planets having more gravitational pull. For this reason, when a planet the size of a brown dwarf was placed, the orbits of the other planets changed dramatically.
A few seconds after placing the planet the size of a brown dwarf, the planet jumped off the screen and game over. The score is 88,304 points. Click a new game to play again.
This will bring up a screen where you can select the type of game. On this screen you can also select a game with multiple pre-arranged planets, but this time I wanted to try the above game again, so I clicked “Design Your Own System” on the top right.
In the second challenge, you put Earth-sized planets and ice giant planets with relatively low gravity.
Avoid the game safely for over 1000 years. However, the score is low because only minor planets are placed.
Next time, let’s play a game where the planets are pre-arranged. This time, I chose “Kepler-11” at the bottom right.
Kepler 11 looks like thisKepler 11Six planets revolve around the star as well.
When I added a planet the size of a brown dwarf, the orbit of the revolution perturbed in an instant…
The planet has jumped off the screen.
When I played Super Planet Crash, I found that a planet with a great gravitational force had a great effect on other planets, and I realized that the planetary system consists of a very nice balance. Also, given the presence of giant planets like Jupiter and Saturn in the actual solar system, we can realize how miraculously the solar system was created.
