As a noun: The rocket placed the satellite into a high Earth orbit. As a verb: The satellite had to travel very fast to orbit the Earth.
The GPS satellite moves with the speed of 7000 km/hour and completes one orbit around the Earth at an altitude of 20,200 km in about 12 hours.
Satellite = 1 hour.
If it doesn't, then it's not an Earth satellite.
How fast does a spaceship travel
the time it takes the satellite to travel around the earth once
To maintain orbit a satellite must travel at a speed of about 18,000 miles per hour to remain in orbit. Too much speed and the orbit is broken and the craft will go into space. Too little speed and the craft will fall out of orbit and burn up in the atmosphere.
yes, they travel fast.
Yes, I have satellite and it works fine as long as its fast
