I have made significant upgrades to an orbiting file which I originally found on Flashkit. I need to make some more changes, which are beyond my skill level.

The changes I need are as follows:
1. I need orbits to be elliptical rather then round.

2. I would like the planets to explode if they hit one another, the sun, or the asteroid belt. I already have the graphics for an explosion, and just need the programing.

3. I would like the speed of an orbiting object to change if it is draged farther from the sun, or closer to it. Currently, an objects speed is calcultated in this method, but it does not update after an object is dragged.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
