You are a starship captain. You have crashed your ship on a
strange planet and must take off again quickly in the alien
ship you have captured. The ship's computer tells you the
gravity on the planet. You must guess the force required for a
successful take off. If you guess too low, the ship will not lift
off the ground. If you guess too high, the ship's fail-safe
mechanism comes into operation to prevent it being burnt
up. If you are still on the planet after ten tries, the aliens will
capture you.
