"A precision solar system simulator/calculator"
AstroGrav is an interesting piece of software for all astronomers and students who are studying the stars and the planets. The software can precisely predict the gravitational movements between different astronomical bodies and how they will interact with each other. Asteroids, comets, stars and planets can all be seen graphically and studied for how they will present themselves over the years. The full constellations in the sky and more than 100,000 stars can be seen and reviewed. Calculate trajectories and orbits to see when the next comet will pass close to the Earth and if even small asteroids are expected to impact with the Earth in the near future.
AstroGrav Key Features:
- Software to plot the progress of comets and asteroids, with the gravitational movement of planets and stars
- 100,000 stars can be seen
- Determine where the next comet will pass close to the Earth
- Useful for students and enthusiasts
- Requires Windows
AstroGrav is an astronomers software package to study comets, asteroids, stars and planets.
Requirements: 1 GHz 64-bit processor or better, Windows 7 SP1 (64-bit) minimum, 2 GB RAM, 1GB disk space
What's new in this version: Corrected a fault that could cause imported asteroids to be incorrectly positioned. Appended the name of the small body supplier to the name of an imported asteroid or comet. Made the structure of a simulation consistent with the evolver mass threshold. Various minor bug fixes and improvements.
