Description:

This is an online Flash game where learners can experiment with ballistics and how to compensate for the varying levels of gravity found on the planets of our Solar System. Their mission: set the proper variables to launch rescue packages to space colonists on different planets, starting with Earth and progressing to the far reaches of the Solar System. Learners adjust the launch angle and force to reach the targets.
