Pour les alertes et les contenus. Vraiment je crois passer au niveau supérieur

Du travail a faire pour que cela vaut le coût.

Les orbites des satellites de Uranus ont une forme rappelant plus un champs magnétique.

Les satellites de saturne ont de mauvaises proportions.

Pas moyen de centrer sur le soleil pour voir les orbites.

L'orbite de pluton est erronnee.

Beautiful, but...

I love all the 3D, but as an iPod Touch owner, I'd rather be able to manually enter my coordinates, since my iPod usually can't determine location by wi-fi. I wish more app programmers would bear that in mind.

Aside from that and the occasional freeze, this is a fascinating program!
