1. Why doesn't this work!?

Hi folks-

I'm trying to get a small sphere to orbit a larger sphere. (I'll add
interesting details to the spheres later...) I've never tried to do the
animation before, and thought this wouldn't be too tough.

When I render the sences, nothing changes! It has to be something simple,
but it escapes me. Any help would be nice.

Thanks in advance!
