written by Jon Taylor
This simulation illustrates how planets orbit the sun. Users are able to view the motion from the point of view of any of the objects in the simulation as well as a fixed point in space. It also gives the users the opportunity to follow the position and velocity of any of the planets and create new planets using parameters of their choice.
