Thank you very much! I get it now. For another question: y'=lim h->0 ((e^x+h)-e^x)/h. So I simplified this and got (e^x)* lim h->0 ((e^h)-1)/h. But I don't understand why and how ((e^h)-1)/h equals 1. Explain?

The satellite can see to the horizon. So along the surface, let the horizon be a distance r from the upcoming inmpact point. Then in basic geometry, one can reduce this to (d+y)^2=y^2+r^2 (with sherical trig, it is more complicated, but it at small d reduces to the simple ...
