Case 0: "Dark Star" Steals Planet (перехват спутника)

In this simulation of three gravitating Newtonian particles, a blue "planet" orbits a red "star" until they meet the "dark star." The physics is simple, yet the numerical behavior is extreme. Indeed, Mathcad's numerical integrators have difficulty modeling the motions correctly.

The view point is the black planet

Solution is sensitive to the choosing numerical methods for solving

Same initial condition but the method is not RADAU (see the first video) but Adams/BDF:

Mathcad Prime - with units but without animation

I think it is the Adams/BDF method of ODE solution.
