Thanks again RamPackWobble. The MND Association is definitely a worthy cause. I have a loved one who has a degenerative condition, unfortunately she is in a country where the public health system is very poor.
Going back to the exercise. Is it possible to help me modify the code so that when 'r' on the keyboard is pressed the space craft moves in the in opposite direction (anticlockwise) for ten seconds after which it resumes moving clockwise, the .

In addition the spaceship and bullet also faces in the direction it is going in.
Any help is much appreciated.
