it's weekend, time to kill, so I wrote a small script for simulating 
Stars, Planets, Comets, and yes, a Black hole with GROMACS. All right, 
not completely black maybe. The script can be downloaded from the 
contribution section on the gromacs website (search for "Galactic"). 
Interestingly we can even make a periodic universe with GROMACS. If you 
run the script you will visualize the popular notion that "gravity sucks".

Caveat: you need the latest CVS code (see comments with the script).
