    This is one of my favorite open source projects. It is very pedantic program in terms of Celestial Mechanics, and it is very beautiful in terms of GUI.

    Window7 Aspire 5741 8gb ram i3 on startup "Crash" PopUp Window text "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available" The original version of Stellarium Failed to work on my desktop running XP I thought by now it would have been fixed several years on. The Celestia program works fine thou not quite the same concept as Stellarium
