A little simulation of a reentry into earths atmosphere, with the ability of the the player to thrust with boosters. It takes into account the ships mass, size, heat- and crash tolerancc, the used fuel, the height-dependent difference in the gravitational force, aerodynamic forces, the height-dependent differences in athmosphere density and also has a crude heat mechanic written into it.

The program is written in Python, the basic preferences described above, along with some other constants can be edited in the first few lines of code.

The use ASCII-Art-Graphics can be turned on or off by changing the boolean value of the variable "graphics" accordingly.
