I am only just beginning to appreciate what a powerful tool AS is.

Cheers,

NadinB's just suggested something to me: I wonder if I can get a star to
go nova just by altering some of the parameters.......?

[Dennis] No thank you...I scare easily.
Hmm you may, but I don't think the program will let you

As an aside a friend of a friend of the family worked for NASA for a
while and taught stellar mechanics at UCSD until oh last Spring
Semester.

Ed, pat yourself on the back. We showed him this tool, even suggested it
as a good TEACHING tool for students of stellar mechanics... yes there
is such a course in the catalogue

He was duly impressed.

And yes we did pick brain a tad... not much, it was dinner after all

;-)
