Newton's Aquarium is an educational program that allows students to explore space conditions and laws of physics very easily with a simulation. The students can use templates with an empty universe, a universe with the Sun and Earth and a universe with a sun and nine planets. They can also add different heaven bodies, like stars, planets, and moons, and also customize the physics properties, like mass, radios, positions and velocities, tilt, as well as the appearance, including color, texture, trail, etc. You can also customize colors to show the velocity, acceleration and force vector. The most salient characteristic of the program is its ability to create simulations using the universe, created by the students, and see how the planets would behave. It even allows you to record a movie of the simulation to take it wherever you go.
What is more, the program is really easy to use and intuitive, so any student will be able to use it without problems.
All in all, Newton's Aquarium is perfect for those students studying the solar system, to have a clearer view of what happens in space.
