Roughly how many SD services can you have on a single transponder? 1205123. According to Kepler's laws, the paths of planets about the sun are Ellipses.Straight lines.Parabolas.Circles.4. The radial velocity of an Earth satellite is its velocityPerpendicular to the surface of the Earth.None of theseParallel to the surface of the Earth.Attributed to satellites moving in any direction.5. How many of the launches of the GPS satellites have failed? 31125All but 246. Consider a moon that orbits one of our most distant planets in an elliptical path. The distance that the moon covers each day isGreatest when the moon is furthest from the planet.The same regardless of its distance from the sun.Greatest when the moon is closest to the planet.The same regardless of its distance from the planet.7. Which type of satellite is used to monitor atmospheric conditionscommunicationweatherreconnaissanceobservation8. A lunar month is about 28 days. If the moon were closer to the Earth than it is now, the lunar month would be Unchanged at 28 daysLess than 28 days.None of the aboveMore than 28 days.9.
