Likely you had the time step turned up too high.

As you turn up the time step the accuracy of the simulation decreased. Likewise if you lower the time step the accuracy increased (although the simulation also seems to run slower).

When the accuracy gets too low and massive objects get close to one another, a common result is for objects to unrealistically eject themselves from the simulation.

I expect to provide better help and messaging for this common issue in a future update.

I'm sorry that happened. It's never a bad idea to his the Save button before un-pausing the simulation. I also hope to add an undo-redo system or auto-save in the future.
