Description:

In this online activity, learners build their own system of heavenly bodies and watch the gravitational ballet. With this orbit simulator, learners can set initial positions, velocities, and masses of 2, 3, or 4 bodies, and then see them orbit each other. This activity includes an online simulation, sample learning goals, teaching ideas, and translations in over 30 languages.
