Talk:Launch rocket with countdown and acceleration in stdout

From Rosetta Code

it should be interesting concerning the drawing of a rocket ship[edit]

One could easily see how the ASCII drawing of a rocket ship might cause bewilderment for some backward peoples of the renderings as it might appear to be something else.   Sodlid?     -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 23:24, 5 August 2019 (UTC)     (speaking rather backwardly)

Of course, one can't do justice in the displaying of the "launching" of a spaceship,   but I was toying with an alternative of showing the   USS Enterprise   flying horizontally (across the screen).     -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 23:24, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

arbitrary animation should be allowed[edit]

I think there is no strict rules in this task. Any cosmic ship animation will do the trick as long as:
1) Watcher can see a countdown
2) Watcher can notice ship "engines ON" / "ignition" event
3) Watcher sees ship flying with acceleration
If all three rules are fulfilled then ANY animation fits for the task.
