Play Them.

Gravity Simulator

Fling planets and change physics in this gravity sandbox. Play online for free, or get the full version for: fullscreen mode, faster calculations, more planet images, General Relativity, mod support, editable colors, and more.

Want to add 1000 planets? Go ahead.
Curious about Lagrange Points? Make em.
Hate the inverse square law? Change it.

What’s the difference between the Full Version and the Online Version?

The full version includes many more features than the online version. A quick list...

  • Much more powerful, can handle more planets
  • More planet images to pick from, or import your own
  • Test out arbitrary force laws
  • Set the potential, add in a tangential force, modify quality settings
  • General Relativity (black holes, two-body orbits, etc)
  • Customizable colors and lines
  • Speed up and slow down time
  • Track planets, seeing the world from their frame
  • Displays energy (kinetic/potential) of each object
  • And more. Oh, is there more.

I want it on mobile devices.

Me too. It’s coming.*

*it may be some time.
