Fun with planets

screenshot Over the holidays I finally got around to doing some recreational coding again. The results even surprised me so I thought I’d share it with my blog-readers. So here it is, your very own planitarium. Planets flying around with real gravity just like Newton taught us (who needs all that fancy new-fangled relativity anyway), and if you feel like it you can even play God and slingshot planets into outer space. Just try clicking anywhere in or around the window.
