Shooting Stars is a lesson plan that teaches you the Kepler's laws of planetary motion in a concrete and innovative way. You will play a physics puzzle game where you get to control the planets of a star system. By playing the game you can simulate orbiting planets and gravitational forces in the searing heat of the sun. You can try how many planets you can keep in orbit. Test your skills in many ways, with different scenarios that give you a taste of the world of supercomputer simulation PRACE offers!
