Celestial Matters is a co-production between several members of the Shatters.net community, but is not exclusive to Celestia. We aim to present things we like and value, with a tendency towards science, art and space exploration.
The Celestia Motherlode is a repository for various addons like textures, models or celestial objects for Celestia. Celestia is a free, interactive (real-time), 3D astronomy program. It doesn't just show you the sky as it can be seen from earth as most planetarium software does, but allows you to move to and view the universe from any point between the planets and the stars. The Celestia Motherlode hosts over 10 GB of Celestia addons by various creators, which extend or change the way Celestia renders the universe.
The purpose of this project is to provide an emulation of the onboard Apollo guidance computers, along with some ancillary items needed to make the emulation do something interesting. "Interesting" is, of course, a subjective notion, and there are plenty of additional components one might want to add to the simulation to make it more interesting.
