an n-body simulation
Wonderful example, with great scope for variations and experimentation. A perfect candidate for remixes.
Very cool — almost like an orbital mechanics demo.Maybe you should update the project description :-)
I love this project. It is a wonderful illustration of how bodies are affected by one another. It is also a great illustration of how black holes were discovered. I think this is a great science model.
It's definitely cool, but hard to tell what's going on. Needs more description to make it more than simply a cool effect.
Any suggestions of the description text is always welcome, too. What should I write?
Christine, I'm not sure what you meant by "how black holes were discovered". Are you mentioning the singularity situation this simulation makes when two masses are at the same location?
