Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Apogee"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. Apogee is the farthest point that a satellite or celestial body can go from earth at which the orbital velocity will be at its minimum.
  2. Apogee is the point in the orbit the greatest distance from the center of the earth. (Web site)
  3. Apogee is the highest altitude that can be obtained during an orbit, where as perigee is the lowest point in an orbit.
  4. Apogee is the term for Earth orbiting objects and Apoapsis is the generic term for any orbit around any other object. (Web site)
  5. Apogee was the first PC games developer to hide cheat modes within games, such as Kingdom of Kroz. (Web site)

Apogee 70

  1. The Infrared Space Observatory was in a highly-elliptical geosynchronous orbit with apogee 70,600 km and perigee 1,000 km.

Duke Nukem

  1. It was released on January 29, 1996 for the PC. It is a sequel to the platform games Duke Nukem and Duke Nukem II published by Apogee.

Half

  1. A satellite spends the first half of its orbit moving from the perigee to the apogee and the other half of its orbit moving from the apogee to the perigee. (Web site)

Apogee Kick

  1. In practice, the inclination change is combined with the orbital circularization (or "apogee kick") burn, so additional Δ V is required. (Web site)
  2. It is usually the satellite itself that performs the apogee kick burn into geostationary orbit.

Apogee Portion

  1. P4 appears to hang over Washington, D.C., since it is near the apogee portion of its orbit and its velocity very closely matches the velocity of the earth. (Web site)

Supersynchronous Orbit

  1. A satellite is in a supersynchronous orbit when its orbital apogee (farthest point of the orbit) is much greater than the eventual geosynchronous altitude. (Web site)

Apogee Motors

  1. These apogee motors can double the weight of the satellite. (Web site)

Apogee Motor

  1. Small corrections are made to the orbit but a lot of calculations would be necessary before the apogee motor is fired.

Orbit Apogee

  1. The spacecraft is shown at orbit apogee with a coverage region in the Northern Hemisphere.
  2. This is done, first, by synchronizing the orbit apogee to pass over the targeted geographical region for each successive satellite. (Web site)

Apogee 66

  1. Firing electric thrusters 50 at apogee 66 after the spacecraft has been placed in the desired burn attitude has two effects. (Web site)
  2. First, as described above, firing electrical propulsion thrusters 50 at apogee 66 raises perigee 72. (Web site)

Apogee Longitude

  1. At the beginning of this example, the apogee longitude is -96.8°, already farther west than desired. (Web site)

Low Perigee

  1. A Highly Elliptical Orbit is an orbit of low perigee (about 1000 km) and a high apogee over 35,786 km).

Apogee Kick Motor

  1. The satellite or an attached apogee kick motor generally performs the impulse from GTO to GEO, so launch vehicles often specify only GTO capability. (Web site)
  2. When a spacecraft reaches this point, its apogee kick motor is fired to inject it into geostationary orbit. (Web site)

Furthest

  1. The point where the satellite is the furthest from the Earth is called the apogee. (Web site)

Aphelion

  1. Apogee -- the point in a satellite's orbit furthest away from Earth (see perigee, aphelion). (Web site)

Perigee Altitudes

  1. These points are where we will change the apogee or perigee altitudes.

Id Software

  1. In some ways, it is similar to Wolfenstein 3-D (id Software, Apogee).

Apogee Software

  1. It was created by id Software and published by Apogee Software. (Web site)
  2. Rise of the Triad (1994), developed initially as a sequel to Wolfenstein 3D by Apogee Software, was a cult favorite of varying notariety. (Web site)
  3. Apogee Software (who went on to develop Commander Keen, Duke Nukem, and many other famous games) created Pharaoh's Tomb first. (Web site)

Slightly Higher

  1. The apogee was also slightly higher than intended, with a planned circular orbit of 115 mi (185 km).

Interest

  1. The apogee portion of each elliptical orbit is over one of the regions of interest.

Places

  1. The orbits are "skewed" because the perigee angle chosen is -134° which places the apogee over 40° of latitude North. (Web site)

Vicinity

  1. Continuous firing of the high specific impulse thrusters begins in the vicinity of the beginning of the half-ellipse that is said to be "around" apogee. (Web site)

Ottoman Empire

  1. During its apogee in the 17th century, Safranbolu's architecture influenced urban development throughout much of the Ottoman Empire. (Web site)

Words

  1. Anyone using the words "apogee" or "perigee" with respect to an orbit around anything but the Earth is being a verbal slob.
  2. In other words, the satellite travels faster at the perigee and at the apogee. (Web site)

Repeat

  1. The ground tracks preferably repeat each day so that the orbit apogee passes in the same location relative to the geographic target area. (Web site)

Equal

  1. The probability per unit time is largest when the perigee and apogee are nearly equal (i.e., the orbit is nearly circular).
  2. Further, it should be noted that the sum of the apogee and perigee distances of an orbit are equal to twice its semi-major axis a.

Zero

  1. Perigee burns should be conducted when the expression in the brackets is greater than zero; apogee burns when it is less than zero. (Web site)

Power

  1. He ruled for 67 years during the 13th century BC, the apogee of Ancient Egypt 's power and glory. (Web site)
  2. In the middle of the 18th century, during the reign of the emperor Qianlong (Chien Lung), the Qing dynasty reached the apogee of its power. (Web site)

Height

  1. The 1680s would see France not only becoming more isolated from its former allies[ 26], but also at the height and apogee of its power.

Right

Miles

  1. While in parking orbit around the Earth, Apollo 8 maintained altitude between a perigee of 112.8 miles (181.5 km) and an apogee of 118.9 miles (191.3 km).

Center

  1. The Moon's orbit varies by about 14 percent from apogee to perigee, an ellipse with each axis offset by 7 percent from center.
  2. A parameter used to define this center is apogee longitude. (Web site)

Result

  1. As one result of this design philosophy, a large part of space debris consists of spent spacecrafts and apogee kick motors and upper stages.

Game

  2. The game was very influential in the production of Duke Nukem 3D which was also produced by Apogee Software.

Score

  1. Score: Nikon in 1st, Apogee in 2nd, and Pentax in 3rd. (Web site)

Speed

  1. If we speed the satellite up while it's in low circular earth orbit it will go into elliptical orbit, heading up to apogee. (Web site)

Value

  1. The value of the apogee longitude is effected by a number of things. (Web site)
  2. With all of them, a value is added to the mean apogee depending on the distance of the sun from the mean apogee. (Web site)

Argument

  1. These burns occur at either an apogee or a perigee of the orbit depending upon the satellite's location in the long-period motion of the argument of perigee. (Web site)
  2. An increase in argument of perigee causes an eastward movement of apogee longitude, while a decrease causes a westward movement. (Web site)

  1. The docking, record apogee and spacewalk are also shown on the patch by the Agena, orbital apogee path and spacewalking astronaut. (Web site)

Decline

  1. During his rule, the Roman Empire was at its apogee - the point from which the 18th-century historian Edward Gibbon began the story of its decline and fall.
  2. After the decline of Ghana, the Mali Empire grew into a powerful Muslim state, which reached its apogee in the early part of the fourteenth century. (Web site)

Rapidly

  1. This results in the satellite moving very rapidly when it is at an approaching perigee, but very slowly when it reaches apogee. (Web site)

  1. As is known, apogee and perigee are defined as being maximum and minimum distances relative to the earth as reached by a space vehicle during one revolution. (Web site)

Minimum

  1. The maximum speed occurs at its perigee and the minimum at the apogee. (Web site)
