China’s retrograde geostationary orbit launch is an overoptimistic idea or a full proof plan
China is expanding in all possible domains that it can do. It’s not the ordinary way that it always goes with, it goes with an extraordinary way to shock the world in a way that it never saw. Its army, technology, and almost every single field are trying to create a dependency of the world on it. If we talk about MI, Oppo, Vivo, and Huawei these are all the best brands that anyone can think of.
Now let’s come on to the most intriguing part of the story. This time China is looking at putting a satellite in retrograde geostationary orbit via the moon. Let’s break the terms into simple meaningful terms where we would be talking about what exactly it means to say. Basically, the satellites are launched in the east direction, which is the direction of the revolution of the earth. After being launched into orbit it uses the speed attained by the earth to take around the moon and then come back to its assigned position. Now this GEO orbit itself has its own importance because along with various crucial weather and communication satellites it contains huge piles of dangerous debris that are not only dangerous for satellites revolving out there but also for people on earth.
So China will work on the idea of launching a satellite in the opposite direction. It would be a bit disadvantageous for it because it won’t be able to have the addition of earth’s speed and for that huge amount of fuel will go. And if it wants to go in the opposite direction it will have to work on control to prevent any unwanted collision. This mission aims on removing debris and accessing information about any future collision.
