Today I’d like to introduce ‘moon lander’ type programs that came from Challenge of the Month – October 2014. The challenge was:
Write a ‘moon lander’ type program.
All these moon landers are controlled by arrow keys. Have fun!
LEM by Coding Cat
Program ID TQL943
Here is my submission for the Lander challenge. I have been tweaking this one on and off for a while. I focused on making an accurate simulation rather than worrying about the graphics. The moon’s gravity is exactly 0.25g and the max thrust of the lander is exactly that of the LEM.
To land safely you need to be traveling slower than 2m per second.
