Configurable game of life simulation. You can change the number of neighbors
needed for 'birth' (the right-most 3x3-square options) and for 'health' (the
next 3x3-square of options). You can limit the maximum number of 'steps'
before death. The simulation shows black in those squares without life and
shows different colors to encode age in the remaining squares. Some
combinations of birth/health will transition from a chaotic distribution to
a line-based 'maze' structure of stable living cells.
Click on an element to see its electron orbital occupancy, along with an image
of the element and various physical characteristics (melting/boiling
temperatures, common compounds, cost, density, number
of protons/neutrons/electrons, family, mass, normal phase, etc.). Click
on the "Groups/Elements" button to change to viewing element groups.
(Click again to go back to viewing individual elements.) In the groups mode,
the table is colored according to the element groups. Click on one of the
groups to get the common characteristics of that group (e.g., reactivity,

Draw a roller coaster tube and watch the ball run through it. The physical
equations (and approximations) that were used for this are described
in this doc.
Click on any of the subatomic particle names for a description of their class,
generation, interactions, antiparticle, mass, common decay path, electric
charge, color charge, and spin. Coloring on table of particle names
shows the type of the particle (quarks, leptons, gauge bosons, or Higgs boson).
Form spirals by laying down a series of circles. You can configure the spiral
using the sliders at the bottom and watch it being generated (instead of just
seeing the end result) by checking "watch" before clicking "draw".
