This Mobile Maritime Launch Pad Puts Satellites in Orbit for Less
rockets jump off the Earth's center-line with ease, able to enter geostationary orbits using a fraction of the energy required anywhere else on the planet. But the problem is that there isn't a whole lot of usable land along the equator—so one ...
The numbers game
However, they do pose a threat to spacecraft because of their extremely ... the inclination (or plane of the orbit relative to the Equator) the satellite will end up in can be calculated using some relatively simple trigonometry. Once the inclination ...
