8:15 You also want to be as close to the equator as possible when launching geostationary satellites because the additional speed from the Earth's equatorial rotation decreases the amount of fuel it takes to make orbit, both due to less fuel needed to get up to orbital speed and also less fuel to correct your orbital plane. Same thing in reverse for polar orbits - the closer to the equator the more fuel it takes to get rid of the rotation you wind up with in the wrong direction. Vandenberg still works for polar orbits because the logistical advantages outweigh the theoretical efficiency penalty of not launching from the poles and because in the case of polar orbits it's not a whole lot of extra energy since you can get most of the way to the correct orbital plane anyway, while orbital plane corrections for high energy geostationary orbits are very expensive and reduce the satellite's effective lifespan because more payload on the launch vehicle winds up devoted to orbital insertion

REAL QUESTION: what are satellites for? Since undersea cables carry 99% of all international internet, telephone & private data. And then all local transmission of calls and data are transmitted by radio and cell towers. Seriously what do they do??? People didn't really think that signals were bouncing from their cell phone, up to a satellite in space to another cell phone do they?!? https://twistedsifter.com/2012/07/the-undersea-cables-that-connect-the-world/

"hundreds of satellites pass overhead but you can't see them. But they're there. They make GPS possible and take photos of earth" That's just stupid. GPS is done by tower triangulation and communication is done by towers as well like it always was. And images are taken by cameras under planes or drones. No one has seen satellites because they're not there.

I didn't realize the amount of testing and the absolutely massive hardware they need to realize it. I guess when so much money is at play, you can't just tell your customer "oh but we DID test it", you have to offer some guarantees, like "we tested it from 1 bar to 10⁻⁵torr, -180°C to +200°C, vibrations from xx Hz to xx Hz with xx watts of energy" I suppose. Can't imagine how long and detailed the test report sheet must be!
