1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate how far an astronaut would need to be away above the Earth in order for his weight to be 0.01 his weight on the Earth's surface.

2. Relevant equations

g = GM/r^2

F = GMm/r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no correct way to solve this. However the answer is 1.93x10^5 Km

Would anyone please kindly show how the answer is worked out?
