I ran a set of four hour-long workshops for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders  
today.  On a whim, I included your student's solar system simulation,  
and challenged the students to make one planet move backward, or have  
an eccentric orbit.  This was a *huge* hit with the students.

So: I owe your student... a beer?  Maybe not.  But something, for  
sure.  Tell him or her that about a hundred middle school students had  
a great time playing with this program.
