Universe Sandbox ² is a space simulator that merges gravity, climate, collision, and material interactions to reveal the beauty of our universe and the fragility of our planet.
Realistically model our solar system or bend the laws of physics, speed up time and watch stars evolve till they supernova, manipulate Earth’s seasons or twist its orbit outward and freeze the oceans solid, then spawn a nearby galaxy to rip apart the Milky Way.
A complete rewrite of the original by a team that now includes an astrophysicist, a climate scientist, and a dedicated physics programmer, this sequel opens doors to greater power and exploration.
