Kerbin Geostationary Orbit


 Share

Recommended Posts

So I was looking through all of my existing probes in KSP when I realized one of them was extremely outdated. It was a Huuble-like space telescope. So I decided I would launch a new space telescope. I also thought to myself, "What do I have to do to get a probe into a geostationary orbit?" I did some research online (looked at the KSP  wiki) and found out that a geostationary orbit around Kerbin would have to have a perfectly circular 2,863.33 km orbit. I spent some time launching it and getting it into the correct orbit, and it worked! I put this on the forums just in case someone is wondering the same thing about a geostationary orbit. :)

Here's a picture of the space telescope:

Smartly done!

I should probably boost one of these things and go into timewarp just to watch how it moves.

I didn't really do a lot of timing work with this, so it always stays over that desert area. I'll probably launch another satellite that generally stays over the KSC.
