If Chribba and Mintchiplol were in the same system at the same time! Yeah. That'd be it.

If you were inclined enough you might be able to use one of Chribba's own sites to find out if that ever happened.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

here you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemesis_(hypothetical_star)

Also closest binary system is in fact our next door neighbor, Alpha Centauri A and B. If you consider Proxima Centauri part of that star system then it is a trinary system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_Centauri

Binary systems are so common they are almost the norm. Jupiter is seen as a failed star, if it had more mass it could have ignited. Jupiter actually emits more infrared heat than it gets from Sol.
The Sirius A and B system also has a third tiny star the Dogon called the mustard seed star. How they knew it was there is still a mystery.
Romantic neckbeards might still be able to pay a few hundred dollars to get a star system named after them and their paramours, it was $110 back in the 80s and is official in the NGC designations or whatever they use these days.

Perhaps stargates can only work on non-binary star systems? It's not a stretch to say that TWO moving sources of mass the size of a star would interfere with the space distorting effects of a stargate.

Actually it's the other way around star gates require binary systems to operate.

Yeah what he said. Heard on coms the other day that a wormhole had two stars. I joked about it, asked if it had a barren planet. There was two of them, so I said lets call one of them Tatooine. Send a detatchment to the surface. There will be no one to stop us this time!

The phenomena at the EVE gate gives the appearance of there being two stars in the system. There's the actual star, then a huge starburst effect from the aftermath of the event that collapsed the EVE gate.

I have been in systems with 2 stars, in wh space.

However only 1 shows on the overview, and only one can be seen in the solar system map.

I guess it's more of a background image thing, the nebulae.

Speaking of eve not following science, what about gas giants having moon that are more like planets? I think Ganymede is almost as big as mars and some of the other moons have molten cores similar to our own.

Our own solar system, IRL, is strongly suspected to be binary, based on new evidence. But the second star is so small, and so close to the main star, that it isn't exactly visible, if, indeed, it is there, at all. Most IRL binary systems are like that, though.

Lol. Your professor must have come from the mad house. Anyone who has a basic grasp of Physics knows that it would be impossible for us to have another star in our system without some obviously noticable effect. Your professor is talking rubbish. Which university do you go to?

The habitable systems, ie temperate planets, probably exist only because there is a singular star. There are more stars in the New Eden cluster, but we just can't go to them because there is no reason to.

Another theory could be that in this area of the universe, binary stars aren't common.

O tempora o mores!

According to the EVE Chronicles about FTL Travel all stars we visit are binaries, and a specific kind too. The stargates use some kind of magic gravity oscillation between the master and slave star in order to generate a boson sphere that allows you to tunnel to the next system.

New people should read the old chronicles, it actually answers most of their lore questions.

Things are only impossible until they are not.

Seen them, some are awesome. I think the second "star" is meant to be a black hole burping as it eats gas, or a quasar, messing up stats with nerfs n bufs. Or just some anomaly, all bright and freakish.

My favourite is the Pulsar system. It looks so nice...

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."

You're missing the big picture. Lore wise, all systems that have a stargate are binary,

jupiter is a failed star in the same way that my bike is a failed 18 wheeler

Yeah, I think 55% of all observed systems in real life are at least binary systems.

Umm, Chribs, according to EvE Lore every system we inhabit or transit is a binary star system. That is why the Stargates work ;)
