This is a steam game I am looking at buying anyone have it? Here is the information on it. If you have it please give me your thoughts on it etc. I am very interested, but I dont like to waste money.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Create and destroy on a scale you’ve never imagined with the ultimate space simulator.

Harness the power to create black holes, collide galaxies, and manipulate gravity with just a few clicks. Inspired by the software astronomers use to unlock the mysteries of our universe, never before has astronomy been so interactive or so much fun.

Spawn a massive moon to tear apart Saturn’s rings or launch a rogue star to rip the planets from their orbits around our sun. After unleashing catastrophic destruction, create your own solar system and share it with friends.

Key Features:
Interactive, real-time, n-body gravity simulator
Change any property of any object at any time
Real physics, real data, real units, real science
Compare the objects in any simulation with chart mode
Supports anaglyphic 3D glasses and 3D DLP televisions
Built in tutorials and step-by-step activities
Includes 70+ simulations both real and fantastical
Extensive editing and creation tools make it easy to build your own simulations
Latest version of Universe Sandbox 2.x with Steam Achievements

Wow this game looks pretty interesting. I'm with you ExCloud I'm not sure I'd want to waste the money for it either but it is priced pretty good.

I can just imagine all the mischief someone could do with this, Planet X/Nibiru and Nemesis scenarious come to mind

The site for it has a down load link for a free version of it
Universe Sandbox

Free version has
Explore & view simulations
Control time
and limited Compare celestial bodies in chart mode

But for 19.99
It has a bunch more ( only list what I thought was neat )
Add stars, planets, moons, & galaxies
Manipulate the force of gravity
Use 3D glasses for total immersion

I used to have a program on a Mac way back
that let you "make your own solar system and stuff"
Had gravity and I think it was gravity or solar system something
came with some mac book with a bunch of other stuff on it.

This program does look neat Think I'll try the demo

This day in age with the modern world being digital I don't understand why there isn't something like this in our school teaching the future generation of children PROPER astronomy. That they themselves can play with and modify and "trial and error" the laws of physics with math etc.

WHY is it that we can create entertainment masterpieces such as World of Warcraft etc...yet we cannot create a fun and entertaining "teaching" tool that properly demonstrates physics, math, astronomy, chemistry etc...

I know for a fact it can be done and to an amazing level of detail such as in this "Universe Sandbox" game but to expand further and let children learn and visually see from the groundwork how everything works together.

The fact that this isn't the case bugs me to no end...

Thanks EvilBat for the link to the demo. I'm going to give a try. And just so everyone knows Universe Sandbox is on Steam for $9.99

Downloaded demo version.
Really quite fun, I made the moon the size of the earth and watch them spiral out of our orbit into the depths of space leaving a nice pattern in their wake.
