Atomix is an educational game designed for GNOME in which one has to build molecules, ranging from simple inorganic ones to some extremely complex organic ones, out of separate atoms.

The first levels can be rather easy, but added complexity always comes with the next level, so that several minutes (or much longer than that) can be spent on each single level.

gbrainy is a platform to train memory, arithmetical and logical capabilities with many sorts of different exercises of different difficulty levels. It should have something for all ages and purposes: kids whose parents want them to develop their capabilities, adults that want to keep their mind in form or just try it out for fun, older people that might need to do some memory exercises, etc.

It provides the following types of games:

  • Logic Puzzles: games designed to challenge your reasoning and thinking skills.
  • Mental Calculation: games based on arithmetical operations designed to prove your mental calculation skills.
  • Memory Trainers: games designed to challenge your short term memory.
  • Verbal Analogies: games that challenge your verbal aptitude.

GCompris is a high quality educational software suite, including a large number of activities for children aged 2 to 10. Some of the activities are game orientated, but nonetheless still educational.

This is a transitional package that depends on the new series of GCompris releases (rewritten using Qt). It can be safely removed once gcompris-qt is installed.

Stellarium は、3D の写実的な天空をリアルタイムで描画します。Stellarium を使 えば、肉眼や双眼鏡、小型望遠鏡で見ることができるものを実際に見ることができ ます。

いくつかの特徴:

  • 60 万個以上の星々の情報を含むデフォルトの星表
  • 明るい星に関する情報 (スペクトル型、距離等)
  • 2 億 1 千万個に至る星々の情報をダウンロードできる星表の拡張機能
  • New General Catalogue (NGC) 星表のすべての天体
  • ほぼすべてのメシエ天体と天の川の画像
  • 惑星とその衛星のリアルタイムの位置
  • 13 の異なる文化とその星座
  • 88 西洋星座の絵画イラスト
  • 非常に写実的な大気、日の出や日没
  • 7 つのパノラマ風景 (さらに作成したりウェブサイトからダウンロードできます)
  • ECMAScript でのスクリプティング機能
  • プラグインのサポート: Stellarium にはデフォルトで 8 つのプラグインが付属 します。特に次のプラグインが含まれます:
  • 人工衛星プラグイン (オンライン TLE データベースから更新可能)
  • 視界シミュレーションプラグイン (指定した眼での天体の見え方を表示します)
  • 太陽系エディタプラグイン (MPC の彗星・小惑星データをインポート)
  • 望遠鏡制御プラグイン (Meade LX200 および Celestron NexStar 互換)

Stellarium は、きわめて精度の高い計算や日食予想のような天文暦に使うべきでは ありません。しかしながら肉眼や双眼鏡、小型望遠鏡による夜間観測の準備には最 適なプログラムです。

XMakemol is a mouse-based program, written using the LessTif widget set, for viewing and manipulating atomic and other chemical systems. It reads XYZ input and renders atoms, bonds and hydrogen bonds.

Features include:

  • Animating multiple frame files
  • Interactive measurement of bond lengths, bond angles and torsion angles
  • Control over atom/bond sizes
  • Exporting to Xpm, Encapsulated PostScript and XYZ formats
  • Toggling the visibility of groups of atoms
  • Editing the positions of subsets of atoms

This is the OpenGL-enabled XMakemol package. The images are rendered using true 3D graphics primitives, and can be exported using the Xpm format; red/blue stereo images can also be produced. The OpenGL package provides more display options, along with better support for displaying vectors. Ellipses can also be rendered.

KStars is a scientifically accurate desktop planetarium, visualising a graphical simulation of the night sky from any location on Earth, at any date and time. The display includes 130,000 stars, 13,000 deep-sky objects, all 8 planets, the Sun and Moon, and thousands of comets and asteroids. KStars addresses students and amateur astronomers of all levels.

The database of known objects can be extended and updated from local or remote databases, which is prepared for in a user-extendable interface. KStars suggests observations of particular interest like conjunctions with respect to the location of the user. And for user-selected targets it proposes the ones that are best-observable.

The software may be used for planning experiments around the globe, e.g. for remote controlled commercial services. But KStars also features an INDI interface to control local telescopes and cameras. Users with programming experience can script it via the KDE desktop bus.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: kstars-data-extra-tycho2
