In the Planet Rocket Game, you set the weight of your rocket and then launch it. Using selected values of different variables, you must figure out which planet you are on by calculating the acceleration of gravity. There are four levels of increasing difficulty. You can look at the acceleration of gravity for each planet by opening the planet data menu at any time. A Word file is included with screen shots and sample solutions for each of the four levels.
