Title: Uses for the Gravity Simulator
Post by ScottM on 03/16/14 at 21:39:33

I'm curious as to the various things the program is used for. Personally, I enjoy using it to observe the relationships between objects in the real-life Solar System, but I thought it would be interesting to find out what other people use it for.

Good question.
I mainly use it to experiment with flying spacecrafts.

I use the program for a variety of simulations . Mostly I'm interested in the dynamically behaviour of bodies from  a given starting position and see how they evolve , have they stable orbits fi .... do they accrete ? Is it possible to build a solar system such as ours out of a cloud of bodies .... to numerous to enumerate .
