    Comment/Request
    Would appreciate if orbital height wasn't the only variable one could use to solve.

    Being able to calculate the orbital height, radius, and velocity from an orbital period for example.
    [2]  2022/06/11 11:45   60 years old level or over / A retired person / Very /
    Purpose of use
    Watching a campy old movie titled 'Starflight' from 1983 where a supersonic airliner accidentally gets thrown into an 87-mile-high orbit around the earth. 7.822 Km/sec and one hour twenty-seven minutes orbital period. Oh no!
    [3]  2022/05/19 09:32   60 years old level or over / An engineer / Useful /
    Purpose of use
    To further understand orbital period of LEOs and Cubesats. The lower the satellite orbit, the shorter the time to communicate with the bird.
    [4]  2022/05/10 16:12   20 years old level / High-school/ University/ Grad student / Useful /
    Purpose of use
    Check my calculation on a past exam question
    Comment/Request
    maybe there can be a calculator for elliptic or parabolic(escape v) calculator too
    [5]  2022/05/05 23:13   40 years old level / An engineer / Very /
    Purpose of use
    To prove the point to smartass colleague and earn a six pack of cold ones.
    [6]  2022/05/04 19:55   50 years old level / An engineer / A little /
    Purpose of use
    Quick check of satellite period to avoid getting calculator out.
    [7]  2022/04/17 16:16   30 years old level / An office worker / A public employee / Very /
    Purpose of use
    Kerbal Space Program
    [8]  2022/04/11 19:11   - / An engineer / Very /
    Purpose of use
    Designing a satellite.
    [9]  2022/04/06 04:41   20 years old level / High-school/ University/ Grad student / Very /
    Purpose of use
    To determine the orbital velocity of a satellite in a geostationary orbit
