Okay...So why does NASA launch in the east. Is there an advantage in east from west?
As you suggested in post #3, it's to do with the way the earth rotates.no, I meant like, when they launch satellites or rovers onto other planets, they usually launch it east.
Thanks! I get it now...As you suggested in post #3, it's to do with the way the earth rotates.
When launching an object into space, what is the main challenge?
If you are on a train going at 90kph and throw a stone forwards at 30kph relative to you, how fast is the stone going?
