j1-2k8-mtH10: Using Kepler's Orrery for teaching Planetary Science
Kepler's Orrery is an interactive gravity simulator that composes &
plays generative music while visually demonstrating the
physics of gravitational attraction. http://www.art.net/simran/GenerativeMusic/Kepler.html http://keplers-orrery.dev.java.net Not only is Kepler's Orrery a pleasing simulation for the eye and the ear, but it can be used as a powerful tool to teach gravity and how delicate of a balance our solar system is in.
