If you don't have money to offer to Universe Sandbox, you can take it for free. Just offer 0$ :).

The aim of Universe Sandbox isn't gain money, but give knowledge to as many people as possible. ;)

I tried that but it says it not for free,says Dan work for along time on this & donations help with updates,I can understand that but I'd still like to research more,I have the program Celestia and thats a good program but dosent implement gravity thats why I would like to study with Universe Sandbox.

Quoted from:
"Why isn't Universe Sandbox free?" - First post

If someone 'steals' a copy of Universe Sandbox who doesn't have any money and they're learning about our amazing Universe then what's there for me to be upset about?

Which is your case.

Likewise, if someone does have the means to pay for Universe Sandbox and they don't... I think that borders on the unethical. If this is you, please consider making a purchase at the price you can afford.

Just ask Dan if you can have a free copy. I'm sure he will agree ;).

This problem has been resolved. :)

Yeah... That is kind of mean. That's not what we do here. Please don't be mean to others.

If you don't have money to offer to Universe Sandbox, you can take it for free. Just offer 0$ :).

The problem is that you still need a credit card which is a problem for most kids.

I'm working with my partner Ben to develop a better solution to this problem when we release version 2.
