COMMENTS:

- final three moons formed 96 years after formation

- their orbits are pretty eccentric, considering that none of the particles had any to start with!

- total mass of moons is 6.01e23 kg, so we have still lost some mass. Maybe it was coincidental that the first run didn't lose any?

- we're still ending up with three big moons though... I guess that the scale of the disc is small enough for the big moons to suck everything in? I just wonder why we don't end up with say, five or six smaller moons.
