Example text

From the window Angela said, “You need to be debriefed, Kelly. It’s part of the process. ” “Sure, soon as I’ve had some rest. ” “We need to do it now. ” The heel of Kelly’s shoe caught a crack in the sidewalk. He stumbled but quickly recovered and continued walking. “That’s not good enough,” Angela said with exasperation. ” He turned and took a shortcut through a neighbor’s backyard. “I’ll meet you at the house, Angie,” he called and vaulted over a low picket fence, landing in an inch of mud. He made his way through a pumpkin patch where he had to weave and hop to avoid tripping over several ripening gourds.

If the added force is toward the center, the primary (Earth, for instance) will appear to be fixed directly overhead. If X is outward rather than inward, the primary will be directly underfoot. Synchronous Orbits to Order: Choose Your Viewpoint To get a feel for what all this means, let’s work through a few numerical examples of what we might get by adding various radial forces to the basic equation. I’ll do synchronous orbits at different altitudes first, because the calculation requires the least change from what we’ve already done.

If you graph r as a function of X, you’ll notice that it increases very rapidly (the curve becomes very steep) when X gets close to 0. For very small positive (centripetal) X, r gets as close as you wish to the value at X = 0. For very small negative (outward or “centrifugal”) X, you can still get orbits, but X has to be really small. 2 days. Increase X just a tad beyond that, and you get into the realm of nonsense solutions and stay there indefinitely. 6 So orbits with sizable outward force aren’t possible, but those with inward forces up to one gee or so could be useful.
