Programming Intro 2

Programming Intro 2 – I am creating an local interstellar map which identifies the closest 50 galaxies near the Milky Way galaxy. While I am creating this map, I am showing introductory programming processes so people may learn from the code and progress of the code.

The map will build over time and I will build in a GUI and extra functionality; it is a cool thing to see something start from scratch and built up over time. Please feel free to check out the code in Programming Intro 2: (will be improved upon; winging it. haven’t coded in a while).

You can do the same thing with the code snippet below using the previous code we used in programming intro.

    System.out.println("The closest solar system to Earth is Alpha Centauri "  + acLY + " light years away");
    System.out.println("The closest galaxy to Earth is Canis Major dwarf " + cmdLY + "k light years away"); 

    int r = 0;

    for(r=0; r<galaxyarrdata.length; r=r+3)
        System.out.print("The galaxy " +  galaxyarrdata[r] +  " is " + galaxyarrdata[r+2]   + " light years away");

        String tempvar = galaxyarrdata[r+2];
        String varname = galaxyarrdata[r+1];
