Posted by Capreeca on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at 10:31am.

During the war in iraq, the us military was extremely successful at detecting and striking enemy targets. many news correspondants suggested the coalition forces had a spy satellite at an altitude of only a few hundred kilometers permanently positioned 34 degrees north latitude directly above the iraqi capital of baghdad.
Explain from the point of view of physics, why a geosynchronous satellite at that altitude and latitude is manifestly impossible.
Explain the importance of geosynchronous satellites. Explain the other types of orbits that satellites may follow and explain the function of these satellites.
