What altitude is geostationary orbit in KSP?

Body Synchronous orbit Semi-synchronous orbit
Altitude Semi-major axis
Kerbin 2 863.33 km 2 181.76 km

What is kerbin geosynchronous orbit?

Kerbisynchronous Equatorial Orbit (or KEO for short) is the stationary orbit of the planet Kerbin, a very useful orbit for satellites. A spacecraft on this orbit will appear stationary when viewed from the surface.

Is Minmus tidally locked?

Minmus is no longer tidally locked to Kerbin. Minmus’ mass reduced. Synchronous orbit is now possible. Previously, it would have required an altitude of 4 302.99 km, outside Minmus’ sphere of influence.

Why do Russians prefer highly elliptical orbit than geostationary orbit?

Highly elliptical orbits provide an alternative to geostationary ones, as they remain over their desired high-latitude regions for long periods of time at the apogee. Despite these advantages the Tundra orbit is used less often than a Molniya orbit in part due to the higher launch energy required.

What is the smallest celestial body in KSP?

Gilly as seen from orbit. Gilly is a tiny asteroid, the only natural satellite of Eve, and the smallest celestial body in the Kerbol system.

Does Mun rotate KSP?

A semi-synchronous orbit with half the rotation period of the Mun is possible at approximately 1797.41 kilometers. There is a tutorial about traveling to the Mun.

What is Minmus in real life?

Minmus is essentially an asteroid, size and gravity wise, so there would be no new developments re: landers. Likewise, the greater distance from Earth compared to the Moon would not be any great obstacle with the technology available at the time.

Is Vall tidally locked?

Like the other large Joolian moons, Laythe and Tylo (of which Vall is the smallest), Vall is tidally locked to its parent. Synchronous orbits around Vall are not possible, as they would lie outside of its SOI, at a radius of 3,893,254 meters.

Can geosynchronous orbit be elliptical?

Elliptical and inclined geosynchronous orbits Eccentricity makes the orbit elliptical and appear to oscillate E-W in the sky from the viewpoint of a ground station, while inclination tilts the orbit compared to the equator and makes it appear to oscillate N-S from a groundstation.
