Trajectory 

Recommend you enter a Trajectory of 30 to 90 degrees and Thrust Duration of 1-100 seconds and launch ship at Full Speed Ahead.  Then enter a thrust duration of 3000 and click STOP ENGINE.  During stop engine interval ship will follow a  freefall trajectory.   Gravitational acceleration on this atmosphere free moon or small planet is .124 meters per second per second.  The launch and freefall trajectory is recorded below in the scrolling text box.
