the three Suns.

Here’s an illustration of the three suns in the figure 8 solar system.  I’ll tried running the maths on it , there’s quite a lot of error on it. 
Here’s the breakdown. 
There are 3 Suns ( Sun01, Sun02, Sun03 ) that move in a figure 8 solar system. and 3 planets ( M01, M02, M03 ) that orbits around the 3 Suns.
Did some animation on the figure 8 systems.. I manage to make the system work, hypothetically….. It’ll look something like the video below.

The gradient color shows the circumstellar habitable zones from the three suns. red = too hot, green = habitable, where earth lies. blue = a lil too cold.  Tried placing the planet to orbit in the green zones but shit just break loose. The gravity of the other suns will rip the planet apart when it gets close to it.  For now, i’m placing the 3 planets on the edge of the red zones. 

 I ran some calculation on the figure 8 simulation, Here’s some numebrs. =D

Well , according to the numbers, Life expectancy on the 3 planet is 0 % . It’s too hot for it ! unless the monsters can live in a hot climate of  177 – 200 + c .  =P



Here’s an interesting one!

The Sun Rise and Set from Planet M03. Cause of the figure 8 thingy. the 2 suns far away will lit the planet in a distance for a period of time while the sun that M03 is orbiting comes up every 2.5days. theres a split moment where the 3 suns set and it goes to complete darkness!
