This animation shows a rocket launch exactly at the escape velocity of each pictured Solar System body, from the surface of each object up to 50 kilometers. This assumes no air resistance and includes gravity pulling down, although that's a fairly negligible contribution.Data sourced from NASA: https://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/factsheet/On youtube: https://youtu.be/RuevSd3HEic
*"green = final" should read "blue = final"... last minute colour change!

if gravitation was taken into account in the calculation, how could the rocket move away from the sun at all? Or have I thought incorrectly about that?
