Nice applet! I'll make the assumption that this is an applet showing the Ptolemic model of the solar system with earth being the green dot. My suggestion would be to use a more realistic gravity model so you can show elliptic orbis but more importantly apocalyptic firey collisions with flames and big explosions and maybe even some blood! That'd be cool!!!

Well I guess I could follow your suggestions, but since this is for a professional company, and I'm working for a professional organization I don't think they would appreciate the explosions as much as you and I would. Bwaahah.
Also, this is supposed to be a ptolemic model of the sun's orbit so there.
For the most fun:
- check all of the checkboxes
- set the speed of the big orbit to -120
- set the speed of the small orbit to 180
btw, you can click and drag the mouse on the canvas to rotate the view.
