The Solar System Simulation project is a Python-based homework assignment focused on simulating the physics of celestial bodies within our solar system. The project aims to create an accurate simulation using real data and employs various libraries such as PyImGUI, PyOpenGL, and GLFW.


The Solar System Simulation project provides an interactive visualization of the solar system. The application allows users to configure various settings related to the system, animation, and rendering. The simulation accurately represents the planets' positions, sizes, and colors based on real data obtained from the NASA website. Users can zoom in and out, change the radius scale, and customize the appearance of each celestial body. Additionally, a performance profiler is included to monitor the rendering and physics engines' performance.

Level up

  • Application of physics principles in a real-world scenario
  • GUI development using PyImGUI
  • Implementation of a performance profiler to monitor a rendering system


The Solar System Simulation project successfully accomplishes its objective of providing an interactive and educational experience. By utilizing real data and physics principles, the simulation offers a realistic representation of the solar system's dynamics. The interactive GUI empowers users to explore and modify various parameters, enhancing their understanding of celestial bodies and their interactions. The Solar System Simulation project stands as a testament to my passion for both programming and astronomy, demonstrating my ability to merge these interests into a captivating educational tool.
