For a GR game, I think a sequel to Velocity Raptor might be cool instead. (It's already relativity!)
$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]
Always check your units or you will have no money!

How about... Higgs Gravity ShocktoRaptor? :D

But not too rainy that you can't use your trusty Sundial

Also, with a circuit maker on your pocket and evolving stick creatures chasing you!

You're right.

I made a thread about GR there.
Binomial Theorem: ((a+b)^n)= sum k=0->k=n((n!(a^(n-k))(b^k))/(k!(n-k)!))

Would be cool, but might slow down rendering a bit.
What is a Lagrange point?

Is it just a mathematical description of newtonian gravity, or something different?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrangian_point

Basically a Lagrange point is a point where three objects can be immobile towards eachother in an orbit. For example, if I had Earth orbiting the Sun and the moon was in any of the Lagrange points(Except perhaps L3: Humankind is kind of bad at seeing through stars) it would look stationary relative to us.
Well put. I came across a pretty nice video today about the Lagrange Points, in fact: http://flip.it/wyxP6

The video is by Sixty Symbols (who've made a slew of physics videos). It's a nice breakdown of what LP's are and why they're important.

Thanks, I watched the video and it was very helpful :)

:idea:
Allow changing the value of G.
$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]
