The Physics of Planets

I redid the formulas in it to use leapfrog integration because it give more accurate orbits :D.
This is a project I'm working on for my internship, so I thought I just post it here because it could be very useful to some people.

Click Run, and then click the Paused button at the top right to unpause it.

It's work in progress by the way.

More GUI will be added soon!
