The list on this page:
http://universesandbox.com/about/faq.htm

What do you mean by only one planet?
Are you looking for something that just shows you the sky?

it's kind of difficult for me to explain... something like: you have a planet and you can choose to just watch it or shape it by launching asteroids on it.. something like that

the reason why I asked this is... on national geographic there was a simulation of how the earth was made, and they showed a simulation program in which they showed how the moon became part of the earth (you know what i mean) and I've been searching for something like that ever since

vaaern:

I haven't seen a good simulator like what you're describing. I've seen some images and simulations, but I don't think that anyone's developed or released anything for the casual astronomer.

Let me know if you find anything. I'd love to play with that myself.

(Although I also plan to improve collisions in a future release, after the UI improvements are complete.)
