Amber G, I know we need a min of Three Geosynchronous satellites to cover earth. But to cover moon how many we need (I mean receive signals from any spot on the farside of the moon and retransmit them uniterrupptedly)? Only two? Is there something called luno-synchronous orbit? Thanks.

So they do not want our President to overfly their territory because of 'atrocities' etc. But they are importing life saving medicines. What happened to the atrocities then? Modi should impose 100% tariff on these medicines. Let us make some money too.

Today a Russian airliner hit a flock of birds immediately after take off and lost power to both the engines. However it managed to crash land on a corn field a la Capt Scully who landed in Hudson after a bird hit some years ago. All the passengers and crew are safe. That is one heck of luck.
