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.

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

Thanks for the confirmation.

Elon Musk – Engineer
Elon Musk(Born 1971; South Africa)

Elon Musk is perhaps the world’s leading exponent for turning science fiction into reality. From his work in private space travel to his courage in the field of carbon-neutral technology, the South African–born engineer and entrepreneur is truly a living visionary.

Musk showed his intuition, business savvy, and affinity for rocket science at age 12 by teaching himself computer programming, designing a space battle video game called Blastar, and selling the code to a video game company for $500.

His next major venture would be quite a bit more profitable. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Musk moved to California and inserted himself into the burgeoning Silicon Valley revolution. In 1995, Musk and his brother developed a software company which provided online city guides to newspapers. With the New York Times and Chicago Tribune among their clients, Zip2 ultimately was sold to Compaq in 1999, netting Musk a fortune.

Musk used this fortune to launch X.com , a financial exchange service that would eventually merge with and be absorbed into Paypal. Many credit Musk’s aggressive marketing ideas with Paypal’s rapid growth and eventually multi-billion dollar acquisition by eBay.

From here, the tirelessly innovative Musk founded SpaceX, an endeavor designed to reduce the cost and improve the feasibility of private space travel. His company would become the first private enterprise to successfully launch a satellite in the U.S, as well as the first to dock with the International Space Station.

Musk’s innovations on earth are perhaps even more compelling. His founding involvement with electric car pioneer Tesla Motors, his conceptual support of leading solar provider SolarCity, and his as-yet-unrealized vision for an emission-free subsonic transportation system called Hyperloop all suggest a man who has used his great fortune and even greater brilliance to help mankind.

Right, this statement pretty well sums up the idiocy of justifying a great emigration to an ice ball.

“For the same reason people emigrated to the US in the 1700s, I don’t think there’ll be any shortage of people who want to go".

Four years later and SpaceX successfully launches and retrieves another rocket flown from Cape Canaveral yesterday.

SpaceX refused to consider Camden and chose Brownsville Tx. as a launching support facility based on location and safety issues.

What has changed in four years?
Moreno is still a tax and spend idiot and the pipe dream has been a million dollar tax drain.

Do try to keep up. It's not a million dollar tax drain but $1,400,000.00 per year down the drain.
But the Camden county Commissioners said if it started costing us homeowners property tax
revenue they would stop funding the JDA!!!??? Well....... It has been costing us every year'
and still nothing to show for our tax raise. But the Camden county commissioners said
they were just taking away our beer and cigarette money!!!???

Doesn't anyone smell a rat......? Remember, Georgia is ranked as the most corrupt state in
the union and Camden county is known as the most corrupt county in Georgia.

SCORE CARD: Millions of property tax to the JDA.
Zero return to the tax payers of Camden county.

The Spaceport is a Steve Howard pipe dream of flying rockets.
The JDA is a Charlie Smith Jr. pipe dream of a 1000 new jobs.

The Camden County Commisioners won't hold either accountable nor will the tax payers ever stop paying the 1% cigarettes beer tax.
