[quote:Anonymous Coward 20635949:MV8yMTE2MTExXzM1ODEyODEwX0JDODUyRkM2] [quote:Weasel_Turbine:MV8yMTE2MTExXzM1NzkyMjE1XzVFQTc4Qg==] [quote:aliensbro:MV8yMTE2MTExXzM1Njk3MjE5X0Y1NkFDODM3] [quote:Weasel_Turbine:MV8yMTE2MTExXzM1Njg2MTE4XzVGNzA4MkQ=] [quote:Saddletramp:MV8yMTE2MTExXzM1NjgzMzIyX0ZBNTU5NkFD] It's interesting that there seems to be an agreement among almost all of the countries capable of space flight and satellite launch to put nothing into polar orbit, even though they now have that capability (at least in theory). And when the N. Koreans tried to put their "satellite" into polar orbit, it mysteriously spun out of control... Apparently a decission has been made to not mess with this thing, whatever it is... [/quote] would be interesting except for the fact that there are many satellites currently in polar orbit. [/quote] There are ZERO satellites in true polar orbit. [b]They crash.[/b] [/quote] Prove the bolded part. I'll bet you can't. The reason some are a degree off is to widen their field of view. An exact polar orbit only moves East to West with the rotation of the Earth. If it can see wider than the rotation moves it in each orbit then it has wasted time. Also, being a degree off minimizes the collision probability. But again, I'll bet you can't prove that "true" polar orbit satellites crash. [/quote] Most all satellites are in geosynchronous equatorial orbit. A stable orbit requires the satellite move forward at the same speed it is falling toward earth. Due to rotation of earth "coriolis" effect, polar satellites must be assisted by boosters. the proof of no polar satellites, google earth..look at north and south poles...notice the blank spots..thats because satellites cannot view that part of earth...unless in true polar orbit....
