Hey, does anyone know what software is used on the astrophysics videos made by NASA? Or similar modeling software where I can play around a bit creating solar systems and stuff like that? Thanks

I hear Universe Sandbox is a nice toy that might suit your needs. It was just a few dollars on Steam last time I checked.

I have this and I highly recommend it. It's easy to use and has a lot of interesting scenarios built in. (Like showing what would happen to Saturn's rings if Uranus or Neptune got really, really close)
