OK this satellite / no satellite thing is not adding up??

Just like thew 2.3 million blocks of stone in the great Pyramid = one stone cut and laid every 8 minutes....

21,000 satellites in LEO would equal 1.25 satellites launches per day EVERYDAY since 1969... including saturdays and sundays... Thats a lot of rocket launches.,


OK according to wiki there have been a total of just under 680 successful LEO rockets launched from Earth....

21,000 satellites divided by 680 payloads = 30 satellites per rocket ??

MATH... Does not add up ??

According to the United States Space Surveillance Network, there are more than 21,000 objects larger than 10 cm orbiting the Earth. Just a small fraction of these are operational satellites. Itís estimated there are a further 500,000 bits and pieces between 1 and 10 cm in size.

Look OP, if you had done some research you would not have made such a fool of you:

In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an artificial object which has been intentionally placed into orbit. Such objects are sometimes called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as the Moon.


Yes, the moon is a satellite. Everything that orbits earth is a satellite. Go figure. If you threw a stone into orbit, you had created a satellite.

Furthermore, your assumptions all satellites require their own rocket reveals more dumbfoolery. (Is this actually a word? If not I just invented it)

For example nanosattelites start at 1 kg

The term "nanosatellite" or "nanosat" is applied to an artificial satellite with a wet mass between 1 and 10 kg

But let me guess, NASA shills are running wikipedia, right?

I like thinking out loud and you don't see me defending these ideas on that hill.... my opinion is fluid and you can read my revisions and questions....

So now i ask, yes even if some are small and don't require their own rocket, its not like the ISS is rolling down th window and tossing one or two out into orbit???

So how do these "mice-sats" "micro-sats" get into orbit if not from a rocket ?
