In Orbiter, sun is just a texture.
Anyway, sun is made of plasma, which is ionized gas, which looks like fire.

If you get to land on a cloud, then you can land on the Sun.
Also, surviving the magnetic field of Jupiter is an issue in real life, just imagine near the sun.

The sun is so noisy that my guess is that if the nuclear explosions do not break or melt your ship, the noise certainly
will.

It's possible, but then all that gas might just be only gas simply held together by gravity.

just like the licks required to get to the core of a tootsie pop... "the world may never know" :)


As far as we know, the Sun has no solid core, so it could be the same thing with the  gas giants ;)

Reading the last few posts I simply cannot resist telling a Soviet-era joke:

After U.S. beat Soviet Union to the Moon, a new goal was set for the Soviet space program - to land a man on the
Sun.
'But we are all going to burn', tried to protest the cosmonauts.
'Don't worry comrades, the Party has taught of everything! You will be flying during the night.'

Yes, I agree. On some TV show on the Science Channel (I forget what the show was, sorry!) I saw that the noise on
the sun is equivilant to 7000 times louder than the louded heavy metal concert here on earth. That's a funny way of
explaining it, but it really makes it easy to understand. The sun is LOUD. 8o

The one thing other than black holes, white holes and worm holes that you really don't want to run into is a neutron
star, I've heard that if something the size of a marshmallow impacts a neutron star, the explosion is equivilant to a
hiroshima bomb, so just imagine the dgiv, or worse, an asteriod smashing into it while your around, wouldn't be your
lucky day at all would it?

"explosion is equivilant to a hiroshima bomb"
You know, it won't be an explosion but a huge gamma ray flash and the energy that will be liberated is bigger and
bigger than the small hiroshima bomb.

Yeah but still, marshmallow=hiroshima bomb("I'm melt-whosh), Boulder=death of the dinos(Roarsplat), Asteroid=Mars
smashing into Earth(Ka-boom), Small star=Giantgantic ka-boom, size of solar system, and the universe(Crush into
small space but everything else is the same), so big and scary that you don't want to imagine it.

question is there a possibility to make or are there already comets and asteroids in orbiter?
seems cool to me to fly to haley, or landing on a asteroid or see your delta glider being destroyed by a comet's tail.

and what about the moons jupiter has 63 moons saturn has 47 moons they are not all in orbiter right?

Each Orbiter object's position is recalculated every second. To have all known objects in the solar system would easily
crash even the fastest computer. That being said, if you want to add a certain object in, and it has been created,you
can download and add it.

you can land on the sun (in orbiter) , but you just can't take off again (unless you use scenario editor)

I got an idea!  You know that sattelite that is suppose to crash (or get shot down) soon?  Try making an addon for it
and put it in a degrading orbit...around Jupiter!  And rescue it at about 300km and get back into orbit safely.

You know, I think that, if it could beat the world champ at chess, it could probably track you down and hack into your
computer, yes this is a bump, but I wanted to bring that up...

Last time I checked noise can't travel through space. You couldn't hear the nuclear explosions until you enter the sun's
atmospere by then you'd burn up. No heat shield couldn't stand that heat.

The energy obtained from falling into a neutron star is about 1/2E=mc^2, so a marshmallow weighing about 10 grams would
create 450TJ, the energy of 7 hiroshima bombs.  A DGIV weighing 18 metric tons, would create 810000000TJ, the energy of
12857142 hiroshima bombs.  Lastly, if an asteriod weighing in at an impressive 7*10^20 Kg (Ceres) would create 3.15*10^25TJ,
an amazing 5*10^23 Hiroshima bombs.  You wold not want to be around when that happened.
