There are indications that it is … Continue reading The Dark Matter is Out There

As we saw in the previous post, it's quite easy to make even not-so-basic physics simulations with Processing and Jeffrey Traer's library for physics. This time we'll give a closer look to the discovery of Neptune. We won't be really accurate here, I just want to give you the gist of it. Reverse engineering the … Continue reading Re-discover Neptune with Processing
