Try and think and use logic and you will eventually get it.
Just a quick question how old are you?.

We can observe it.
The ISS for one.

" We " i.e you and me or anyone else on ATS can't observe it .

I've never heard a pilot, or anyone, say how planes are always in descent, which is very odd. It seems very important, to fly properly,

Clearly, you are not a pilot. Pilots maintain a constant altitude relative to the curving surface of then earth. Satellites in orbit are actually falling at about the same speed as they are traveling forward; this is why they stay in orbit. (This explanation is for the benefit of any child that strays on to this thread.)

Say Gravity induced the momentum for the fall towards Earth ; where do the satellites get the forward momentum to begin with and how do they sustain the " glide ratio " so to speak ?

When you add the forward + downward momentum of these satellites you need to have a value greater or equal than that of the momentum Gravity induces , right ?

When we put satellites up into orbit do they automatically get caught in this double momentum or is there a propulsion system which enables these satellites to sustain the double momentum ?

Please explain how you believe the Moon stays in orbit.

which explanation would you prefer ?

newtonian or god ?

I believe I asked a question first and it was a genuine question .

plaigerised twaddle - you stole that from eric dubay

is it possible you were mistaken ?

PS - sharing your methodology and results - as asked would help

oh dear - thats the most pathetic cop out you have pulled out your arse EVER

as i suspected - you have no idea what you are talking about

Consider this option ; what if the Earth is not 25K in circum. but , say , it is actually 250K .

now you sare just pulling crap out your arse

you CLAIM to be a sailor -

do you know how to calculate latitude and logitude with only :

a sextant , a chrono ?????????????

the measurable distance of one degree of latitude = 111 km [ aprox ] - this is testable

as for comms range

again as you CLAIM to be a sailor

what is the expected reception range for VHF [ in clear conditions ] when using :

1 - a 5 w hand held used with the unit 2m above the waterline ?

2 - a 25w fixed set with the antenna mouted on a 12m mast ?

3 - the same 5w hand held - operated from the flybridge of a tanker [ 30m above waterline ]

yup... we call them rockets

They get the satellites up to the correct speed to orbit... theres no resistance in a vacuum so once they've reached said speed they generally stay put...

again as i've said in a previous post, they literally fall around the earth using gravity as momentum
