Have some fun:
Move the "sun" or a "planet" with your mouse, then run the simulation again.
A powerful, real-time, interactive gravity simulator.
By experimenting, you acquire an intuitive sense of orbital dynamics.
You can choose from pre-programmed scenarios in a drop-down list, or create
your own scenarios.
You can change the program's behavior by dragging the "planets" around the

Many program-behavior options are available in the "Setup" submenu.
Very fast mathematical orbit simulation.
Traces orbits with lines or points -- creates nice patterns.
Can be run as a "stand-alone" Java application -- to maximize display size and
