I recently bought Space Engine but it keeps crashing my computer after a few seconds

Hi everyone, I was looking for any posts on the subreddit that could answer my problem but I haven't seen any solutions yet, so I decided to ask. I recently bought Space Engine but every time I run the game my computer crashes very quickly with little to no input from my end. I'm pretty sure it's my graphics card that keeps crashing but this is odd to me as I currently own a Geforce RTX 2070 super (which I believe is good enough to run said game, at least according to the minimum specs listed on the Steam page). Again, I couldn't find any solutions as the most recent post I could find about this problem was four years ago. Are there currently any fixes or is this problem still being resolved?

I have an idea

I was thinking of creating a program that could help the majority of the community that creates systems in space engine, like a program that with a graphical interface allows you to modify the appearance of planets, their position in the system and also some other things that space engine doesn't have like the goldy lock zone, simulate the color of the atmospheres based on the composition and then have it exported to a file containing the entire system,

similar to universe sandbox.

I know it will be hard but
It's a good idea?

Really interesting looking galaxy.

I've never seen straight white galaxies before, I'm sure this is just something to space engine and not real, but thought it looked really interesting. I'm not sure how to get its' code, but the name of it was RG 0-2-28-2651
