low reynolds number flow over a capsule in fluent

I've been trying to simulate flow conditions at 100 km altitude over a re entry capsule in fluent.

Conditions are


Density = 0.000000577 Kg/m3

Pressure = 0.0289 N/m

I tried using laminar and k-w model. The solution does not converge even after 50000 iterations using the density based solver and ideal gas equation.

Is there a way to go about it?

Please let me know.
