The centre of Eve is where ever I happen to be.

At least, that is where my centre of Eve is.

This is not a signature.

1.) EvE Online is an MMORPG which as everyone knows is also played by Samuel L. Jackson.
2.) Samuel L. Jackson was in Jackie Brown with Robert DeNiro
3.) Robert DeNiro was in Sleepers with...

The radius of the EVE cluster is 56. The center is Lansez (Khanid). In layman's terms, any system in EVE is reachable within 56 jumps from Lansez, and this is minimal such number.

The system with the minimum average distance to all other systems is Kaaputenen (The Citadel). The average distance is 26.32 jumps.

The system with the minimum sum of square distances to all other systems is Otosela (The Forge). (If you don't know why this is important, feel free to ignore this fact.)

The furthest two systems in EVE are 99 jumps apart. It's 373Z-7 (Stain) and any one of SVB-RE, BU-IU4, or 3KNA-N (all three in Branch).

All data is based on the Inferno 1.2 static data dump, counting only space reachable by gates (no Jove, no wormholes). I now have a full matrix of system to system distances, if anyone wants any other facts.

Bloody hell, that's pretty in-depth analysis there! :) Take you long to calculate?

Exploration is Random. Random is Random... or is it?!

So who else it happy with Kaaputenen being renamed Bacon?

The button has been pushed.

We now await the Bacon....

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

If we are going with jumps, that one thing, but physical distance is another.

The actual "Center of Gravity" of the universe if we flat-plotted all of the stars on a XY grid, might not even be a system.

The center of gravity, assuming:

- all systems are of equal mass
- nothing that isn't a system has a measurable mass
- counting all K-space systems, including Jove, not including wormholes

is at coordinates [-91608542247707500, 42279992861385700, -10904012170617000] in meters, or [-9.683030556, 4.4689987717, -1.1525549959] in light years. The closest system to this point is Trytedald, being 2949567311583880 meters (0.3117695108 light years) away.

[edit] For what it's worth, the center of gravity of W-space is closest to J140121, it's 1.215654987 light years away.

Actually not at all. It took about 10 minutes to calculate the system-system distances using the simplest implementation of Floyd-Warshall. Then it was just a matter of looking it up in the resulting table. The statistic above is even easier as it's only averaging numbers in a database.

Thread totally delivers. Note that the old 2007 calculations don't include Black Rise but that should barely matter.

It's me.

It's all about me !!
