Aavick, a student at the Awty International School will introduce us to Universe Sandbox 2 is an open sandbox computer simulator in which you can model things in space. For example, you could move the Earth closer to the Sun and see it's effects on the climate, or you could blow up Jupiter. You can replace the sun with a black hole, or with the largest star known. You can collide 2 pulsars, or let them tear each other apart in a tidally locked system. The possibilities are endless in the simulation."
