I've noticed that every few take-offs, my starship will rapidly ascend into orbit for no reason. This didn't bother me until I read a comment that implied that going into orbit would reset your extreme weather survival timer. Because this milestone is already frustratingly time-consuming enough, I would like to not be thrown into space unwillingly and void the time I have spent waiting around for time to pass.

On occasion, using the launch boosters to enter flight from ground will cause the ship to rapidly gain altitude (resulting in instantaneous orbit).
It is also noted in the report that there is no known fix for this, but I'm thinking there has to be some kind of circumstances that cause this.
From what I've seen, it looks like every time this has happened, it's been during a storm of some type on whatever planet I am on. Can anyone confirm/refute this? Any other observations are welcome, too.
