This is a MAJOR problem and it must be fixed.

62 replies 26 views Edited Sep 4, 2011

Ok so while I was on the LOOT space station I noticed something strange, the cloud on the Earth move instead of the Earth itself. Now I learned in grade 1 that the Earth moves not the cluds but LOOT doesn't know? I think this should be fixed.

Maybe the LOOT Space Station is in a geosynchronous *spelling* orbit with a fixed spot on Earth?

Oh - and "clouds" move - just ask anyone who was in the recent path of Irene

I thought satellites/space station are synchronized with the earths rotation. So looking at the earth from a geosynchronous object  the clouds would be moving and the earth remains still. I think Loot may have got it right.

Surely if clouds never moved and the earth simply rotated, we'd get identical weather daily?

I think that would be a geostationary orbit - wouldn't it?

So that basically - the satellite would be in the same position above the earth - example would be a communication satellite.

Either way - it makes me dizzy *ier*  thinking about it.
