Landing rockets with RL (method comparison)

Simplified demo of how reinforcement learning can be used for tasks too dangerous for humans

UPDATE 07/20/2020: It’s hard to talk about Reinforcement Learning now without bringing up MegaStep](https://andyljones.com/megastep/), a new toolkit for running massively parallel RL simulations. Go and check it out.

UPDATE 11/17/2020: The demonstration Notebook has been updated to make use of a new library called Tonic.
