This is where Universe Sandbox succeeds brilliantly: players experience godly power to create or destroy, while almost unavoidably learning something about the physical properties of our universe.

Using the vast range of variables and tools at your disposal you can create some enormously convoluted displays of physics, bending cosmic laws to your will...

I’ve seen some pretty wonderful interactive programs that allow you and your family to explore the vast regions of the universe, but nothing nearly as enthralling as Universe Sandbox.

There is just so much fun [stuff] to do, and [it's] all just really really awesome, which begs me to wonder why no one has made anything like this before.

You've combined some really clever technology with a beautiful artistic sense - not a typical combination.
