I recently asked a question in stackoverflow regarding simulation of suicide burn and I also got a wonderful answer from William Miller as well. I think the answer posted in stackoverflow is more relevant here and might help many space fans here. How should I share his answer as a post here?

I am thinking of creating a post mentioning the problem I was facing and how William Miller's answer solved that problem and linking his stackoverflow answer's link to the post without the code. Is this kind of post allowed here?

  • $\begingroup$ From time to time people will post a short question as a way to post an answer that they feel will be of interest to the community, and as long as it's done well and on-topic I haven't seen any complaints. If it were me, in this particular case, I'd do something a little different though. I'd post the solution in the question and ask about further improvements or ways to modify or even ask for someone to independently verify the results in a different simulator. That may serve your purpose but it also gets others in the community much more involved than just posting a self-answered question. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 15 at 14:46
  • $\begingroup$ But probably your way is okay, let's see what others think though. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 15 at 14:49

    $\begingroup$ Asking in question format would be more appropriate, as you said it would increase interactivity from community. Thank you for your input $\endgroup$ – Eka Jan 16 at 3:27
  • $\begingroup$ If you are interested you could post a short answer summarizing what you did, and if there are no objections, in a few days accept it. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jan 22 at 0:45
