Because there are no satellites the size of Sinai. The earth has a circumference of 40.075 km (average). Do you really think you could spot a satellite the size of a car?

Adding to everything that has been said about why they are so expensive, there is also some redundancy. This means you have backup systems in case you get bitflips on microcontroller level or anything related to damage (cosmic rays).


Hmm. So you don't find it odd that nearly all satellite pics are admittedly CGI, (and obviously so) and that there aren't thousands of images of satellites with many others in the background? Sure they are "small", but with about 30,000 supposed satellites in orbit there should be plenty of real, non CGI photos available.
Why not have the ISS taking daily pictures of flyby satellites (and the Earth with correctly sized continents)?

Where did you get 30,000 satellites from? There are fewer than 2300 satellites in orbit.

This would be funny if the Op didn't really believe it, which they do. Which is sad, not funny.

An idiot flatearther launched a rocket a while back for like 20 bucks lol
How close to orbit did it get?
Did it reach 17,000 mph?
Because that's what it takes to get into orbit.

How many G's is that again? How do the astronauts survive that?

Because they accelerate with the craft. How many Gs do you feel when flying on a plane at 600 mph? Other than liftoff you don't feel Gs from speed in a space craft, anymore than you do an aircraft.

Speed does not directly relate to acceleration. You have to consider time as well so it depends on how long it takes. In the case of the space shuttle, about 3 Gs at its greatest rate of acceleration. It takes about 8 minutes all total, from liftoff to engines off.

Right. So since we are moving over one million MPH through the universe from the "big bang", while the solar system rotates about 514,000 MPH around the center of the milky way galaxy, while the Earth is traveling around the sun at about 66.6(shocking) thousand MPH, while the Earth rotates at the equator at about 1'000 MPH, WE NATURALLY FEEL ZERO MOVEMENT BECAUSE OF A THOUGHT EXERCISE NAMED RELATIVITY.

Sounds peachy. 😂

No need for Einstein. Newton knew why. It's because we can feel acceleration. We can't feel constant motion.

No need to yell.

do you believe it costs a half a billion just to build one satellite?

I bet China builds them for 25%

Riiiggghhht. Which is why an airplane traveling against the supposed Earth's spin doesn't experience an extreme difference in travel time per mile. Because it is somehow still stuck with the Earth's atmosphere traveling the opposite direction while flying the OTHER direction.

Wait what?

Afraid he/she does, hard to tell which gendered person is in control of that account at any one time.

The atmosphere is "spinning" too. It's being dragged along by the surface of the planet. Of course there are variations that are called "wind."

When did this turn into a flat Earth thread?

You may want to check the definition of the word.

I answered the question and asked another.

Do you think the White House paid 10 grand for a hammer, or do you think Independence Day was a documentary too?

When you decided to attempt to derail it by mentioning that phrase. Up until now there were only honest and pertinent questions being asked. By inquiring minds.
