Solar simulation

Well it's been a pretty hectic couple of weeks, what with the start of term and all.

I have, however, managed to launch a pet project I have been developing for a while, which is a 3D simulation of the solar system. The idea is to explore using interactive simulations or tools for learning.

At the moment, the simulation has only basic interactivity, but in time I expect to add in info about the solar system, and interactive responses to actions such as altering the planet size, spin speed and oribtal period.

It's both an experiment in interaction design, and an expression of my nerdy enjoyment of space science and Lingo programming :)
