Calculates key properties of Earth atmosphere (beta).

This is a great tool for educators and others just interested in the properties of the atmosphere. Although what it does could be communicated well in a more graphical way (sometimes, though, people can't interpret graphs well and then the usefulness is gone), it allows the user to interact with the numerical values and see the results. I especially like the speed of sound part - great when teaching about Mach values. Atmosculator could do with a preference setting to use SI units with just one click and an alternative input method (maybe sliders) that allows you to step the values up with clicks. It's still a great program for using but hiding equations.

It is a pity that this very interesting educational item insists in slugs(?), feet and other non international measurement units not offering at least a quick way for changing them all to the standard, that on the other hand are always used in the explanations as we all have learned in the schools. Also the output number format (engineering with things like 1.3e2) could be much better (130).
