Some people have proposed building a giant elevator from Earth's surface to geosynchronous orbit. The top of the elevator would then have the same orbital distance and period as any satellite in geosynchronous orbit. Suppose you were to let go of an object at the top of the elevator. Would the object fall? Would it orbit Earth? Explain.
