# Escape velocity Calculator

## Calculates the escape velocities from the planet and from the solar system.

The third cosmic velocities of the Sun and the moon are calculated as the escape velocities from the galaxy and the Earth respectively.
Earth's mass=5.974E24
Sun's mass=1.989E30
Galaxy's mass=2.8E41

Orbital velocities for various altitudes, for a story I'm writing.
Comment/Request
WOW! Just noticed all the other calculators. This is when the word 'awesome' is appropriate.

Purpose of use
To verify calculated answers, and find out what mistakes I may have made or steps missed in calculations.Very useful website.Thank You :-)
Comment/Request
Can you add rendezvous with ISS, Inclination changes, time for burn, launch inclinations for orbit and rendezvous?
Thank You!

Purpose of use
Trying to compute solar escape velocity from Pluto''s orbit (NOT from the surface of Pluto, or from orbit AROUND Pluto.)
Comment/Request
I wish the variables M, R and r were explained or shown in the diagram. What do they refer to? In my question (trying to compute solar escape velocity from Pluto''s orbital altitude, is M the mass of the Sun? Is R Pluto''s orbital distance from the Sun? Why are the units for R and r different? Etc.

Purpose of use
To determine the range of velocities of impact debris from a meteor strike on the Moon that would wind up in orbit around Earth (that is, between Lunar escape velocity and the minimum velocity that would allow correctly aimed debris to leave Earth''s vicinity). Also later to get escape from Saturn parameters from Saturn''s moon Titan.

Purpose of use
To illustrate that a proposed Aldrin Cycler travelling at 0.1c would not be feasible: such a spacecraft would pass Mars just once, before travelling out deep into the void beyond the solar system, any passengers doomed to starve and freeze to death if the oxygen didn't run out first.

Purpose of use
To prove the reason, why the size (mass) of the Lunar Module could be so small in comparaison with that of the Saturn V, while the aim of both was around the same, and the mass proportion was less. (One of the arguments of Apollo hoax theory.)
