"mixture of science, entertainment, and gaming blended into a beautiful, unique, and creative experience. A real gem of an app" **App picker review**

Manipulate the universe to create beautiful patterns bringing gravitation to life. Newton’s playground is an interactive app based around the patterns created as gravitational bodies interact.

The calculations are based on Sverre Aarseth's n-body program to solve the equations of motion of many-bodies moving under gravity in 3-dimensions.
