Hello, I've been working on calculating the time that a rocket would take to reach ground level, safely. But some things are getting me confused, also I would like to create a formula for this so i can just input values no matter what planet or celestial body you're landing on. To put it in clearer terms:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to know how long a rocket would take to land safely(eta) at a landing pad going vertically down, taking into account the gravity and the upward thrust that a rocket engine would create.

Thank you, if i'm missing something than tell me.
