Now is there anyone on ATS who can explain how a geostationary satellite maintains its curved trajectory through space, without falling around Earth curvature?

Really the people who have already posted should give up. They obviously cannot offer a solution.

Why wouldn’t a speed of 1.91 mi/s keep a satellite in stable orbit 22,236 mi above the earth’s equator.

A geostationary satellite does not orbit the Earth.

It simply does not compute does it Neutronflux?

That is not an explanation to

Again. Why wouldn’t a speed of 1.91 mi/s keep a satellite in stable orbit 22,236 mi above the earth’s equator. There are hundreds of satellites doing that very thing proving vital services this very second.

Because you don’t think so?

Then posted lists of working satellites, with no explanation by what are all the objects broadcasting from geostationary / geosynchronous orbit.

The question has been answered. You just refuse to acknowledge that geostationary/ geosynchronous satellites are just like any other man made satellite. They are just at an altitude that allows them to be able to have a velocity which matches the earth’s rotation. The earth rotates around 2880556 miles per second. For a geostationary/ geosynchronous satellite to maintain its orbit, it must travel at 1.91 miles a second.

How is the orbital velocity of 1.91 miles a second not the right velocity to keep a satellite in orbit 22,236 mi above the earth?

Because you cannot explain how it maintains a curved trajectory through space. You can keep posting those numbers like they mean anything but you have to explain HOW IT IS POSSIBLE that it keeps flying in this curved trajectory through space with a speed of 1.91 mi/s, 22,236 mi above a point on the equator.

Geostationary orbits debunked.

I never claimed this is not the right velocity. Ffs man. For the 50th time, I am asking you to explain how it does that.

And again, it is not in an orbit. Its geostationary. How can you make this mistake 50 times in a row?

Incorrect.

Its geostationary.
Yes. Because its orbital period matches that of Earth's rotation, about 15º per hour. Exactly the result produced by a laser gyroscope. Amazing, huh?

Earth does rotate, you know.

its orbital period

What does it orbit?

posted on Aug, 17 2019 @ 04:50 PM

The planet Earth.

The center of gravity of the round planet Earth.

At a rate of 15º per hour.

Does a geostationary satellite move around the Earth, Phage? So its not geostationary then? Phage?

posted on Aug, 17 2019 @ 04:56 PM

Does a geostationary satellite move around the Earth, Phage?

Yes. It orbits Earth's center of gravity.

So its not geostationary then?
Yes it is, because its orbital period matches the of rate of Earth's rotation at the surface, at the equator.

How does it maintain its curved trajectory through space, without falling around Earth curvature, Phage?

posted on Aug, 17 2019 @ 05:00 PM

It is constantly falling, its angular momentum being controlled by Earth's gravity. Which, like the fact the Earth is round, also exists.

posted on Aug, 17 2019 @ 05:03 PM

It is constantly falling,

Falling where?

posted on Aug, 17 2019 @ 05:04 PM

Around the planet. Just as the planet is falling around the Sun.

But you know that. Right?

You

You guys are hilarious. You keep posting the same dumb contradiction I debunked about 40 times now.

The only thing dumb is that you cannot realize the earth’s rotation has nothing to do with earth’s gravity well. And it’s ”dumb” that you think a satellite cannot be in orbit because it is at a height and speed that matches the earth’s rotation.

First off, the earth’s rotation has nothing to do with the ability of a satellite to orbit. In reality, a satellite does not orbit the center of the earth. A satellite orbits the center of Earth’s gravity well. An orbiting satellite could careless if the earth was rotating, and at what speed.

What is gravity?

spaceplace.nasa.gov...

Second: Why can you not get through your head a geostationary/ geosynchronous satellite still obits the earth. It’s just at a speed that keeps it above a specific point above earth. But a geostationary / geosynchronous satellite is still traveling around earth’s gravity well.

Geostationary orbit

en.m.wikipedia.org...

A geostationary orbit, often referred to as a geosynchronous equatorial orbit[1] (GEO), is a circular geosynchronous orbit 35,786 km (22,236 mi) above Earth's equator and following the direction of Earth's rotation. An object in such an orbit appears motionless, at a fixed position in the sky, to ground observers. Communications satellites and weather satellites are often placed in geostationary orbits, so that the satellite antennas (located on Earth) that communicate with them do not have to rotate to track them, but can be pointed permanently at the position in the sky where the satellites are located. Using this characteristic, ocean-color monitoring satellites with visible and near-infrared light sensors (e.g. GOCI) can also be operated in geostationary orbit in order to monitor sensitive changes of ocean environments.

Yes, from the earth’s surface. A geostationary satellite appears to be “fixed”. But that same satellite is traveling the “curve” of earth’s gravity well. Orbiting around the center of earth’s gravity well. So, yes. The geostationary satellite is circling the axis of earth.

Around the planet.

But it is geostationary and doesnt fall around the planet.

Wow, Phage you are worse than those who tried before.

I think your contribution really drives home the point for me.

Thank you Phage.

Geostationary orbits desintregated.

The former is correct, the latter is incorrect.

But according to Phage it travels around the Earth.
