From the Author:
This experiment is a N-body problem simulation. Using a simplified version of Barnes-Hut algorithm, we can compute the trajectories of thousands of massive bodies spinning around a larger one.
The asteroids merge when they collide.
With Google Chrome on Windows and a recent proccessing unit, you can reach 10 000 bodies.
