Right! Squeak is a great place to model or even break the laws of physics.

Here is a great set of Squeak Etoys for NASA from physics professor Randy Caton


Etoys isn't the Smalltalk workspace, but the simple tile scripting
language built into Squeak.

Here are more Etoys on physics, but you don't need to be a Squeak
Central or NASA guru to make them, as I show in Free Fall.

Particle Gas Model (Yoshiki Ohshima)
Ball Drop Analysis 1 (Alan Kay)
Collision Physics (Bert Freudenberg)
Lunar Lander Game (Alan Kay)  http://squeakland.org/showcase/project.jsp?id=7424
Free Fall (David Corking) http://www.squeakland.org/showcase/project.jsp?id=9709

Have fun!
