Ideal rocket simulator
CodeLongAndPros (1587)

This is a bit of math and turtles, in python, to simulate the ideal flight of a rocket.

The function assumes that there is no air resistance, the rocket is massless, and that application of thrust is at t=0.

If you actually want to launch a rocket, do not use this.

The x value is one order of magnitude greater that the returned value for the purpose of graphing. The Y-axis is not distorted.

The red line is when the rocket is falling. The green line is when the rocket is ascending.

What will be the starting height of the rocket? 250000
umm I'm stuck
