1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The weather pictures you see every day on TV come from a spacecraft in a stationary position relative to the surface of Earth, 35,700 km above Earths equator. Explain how it can stay exactly in position day after day. What would happen if it were closer? Farther out? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Well I was thinking that a spacecraft would be going the same exact speed as the orbit of earth except in the opposite direction. But then i realized that couldn't be it. Because it still wouldn't follow the same place on earth it would just be in the same place in space. So while i was just typing this i thought it would be going the same speed as in the orbit earth in the same direction. And sorta like following it.
