One other factor to consider is the eccentricity of the orbit. That is, how far North and South of the equator does the ground track go.

If you want a satellite in a polar orbit, it doesn't matter where on earth you launch from. You get no benefit from the earth's rotation at your latitude. All of the energy to get the satellite into orbit must come from the rocket.

Once you get the satellite in orbit you can still change the orbit. The greater the change and the faster you want to make the change, the more energy (deltaV) it takes.

Geostationary satellites orbit at the same speed as the earth rotates and remain above the equator at a particular longitude. Geostationary orbits have a radius of 26,199 miles from the center of the earth. They will always maintain an exact position relative to a particular ground station.

You can change the longitude of geostationary satellites with very little energy if you are willing to wait a while for the satellite to precess or recess to its new longitude.

To take the satellite forward (east) in its orbit you push it into a lower orbit. To move it backwards (west) you push it into a higher orbit. When it reaches its destination longitude you just nudge it back into its normal orbit.

I've never known anything that David Keating reported on to actually manifest. Therefore I believe the "infamous" JDA Board of Directors needed a Christmas bonus. Anytime the suckers around here hear about prospects of jobs they allow the JDA to milk the cow!!!!!

This will quickly blow over just like everything else David Keating had said. He's been on the taxpayer tit for what 8 years with 0 jobs to his credit! But we are paying for him to get masters degree so he will have something to do.

Denise, you really need to delete "manifest" from your vocabulary.
It's like a flashing neon sign identifying you.

So, my intuition as to how that worked was correct.

Thanks for the confirmation.
