The Solar System Builder

Clearly I didn't do a great job, since that planet orbits so close to the sun I don't know how it persists, but that is better than what happens most of the time which seems to be planets wrecking straight into the sun itself, as in this image from a universe less well made:

Where is this all being done, you ask? In this surprisingly addictive game from National Geographic. I suppose when you think of it, what's more Goth than watching worlds be destroyed?

Construct the perfect solar system in the Known Universe Solar System Builder. Choose your star, then create a wide variety of planets and send them spinning into orbit.
