The circular orbital belt at 22,247 miles above the equator, named after the writer Arthur C. Clarke, in which satellites travel at the same speed as the earth's rotation. Also called the geostationary orbit.
The geostationary orbit, named after Arthur Clarke who first said that such an orbit should exist
The name given in honor of Arthur C. Clarke, to the orbit 22,300 miles directly above the equator where satellites can maintain a stationary position in relation to the earth. Also called geostationary orbit.
Stationary satellites orbit at altitudes around 22,300 miles. Back in 1945, science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke imagined communications satellites in stationary orbits where they would travel around the world at the same speed the globe is spinning, making them hang stationary over one spot on Earth's surface. The stationary-orbit region of space is referred to as the Clarke Belt. Satellites in the Clarke Belt are said to be stationary, geostationary, synchronous or geosynchronous. A synchronous satellite has a high, fixed vantage point from which it can look down continuously on a large portion of Earth. That makes stationary satellites ideal for pinpoint broadcasting.
Named after its founder Arthur C. Clarke, the Clarke Belt is an orbit used by satellites at a height of 22,250 miles, in which satellites make an orbit in 24 hours, yet remain in a fixed position relative to the earth's surface.
The circular orbit at approximately 35,800 km above the equator, where the satellites travel at the same speed as the earth's rotation (Geostationary Orbit) and thus appear to be stationary to an observer on Earth. Named after Arthur C. Clarke who first postulated the idea of geostationary communication satellites.
