There are some planners who suggest that we might put nuclear warheads in orbit at 50.000 to 75,000 miles above the earth. These would circle the earth in 70 hours 33.5 minutes. and 125 hours 2.5 minutes. Thus, high above the earth would be The Lighter Side How Does Your Garden?

Such "One gaihers you cither go 10 much damage as ihe lace bugs." a satellite would circle the earth in 23 hours 56 minutes and, once it had been launched to orbit over a particular perigee point on the earth, this point would not vary. Thus, if an island were chosen for 'he subperigeal point, the warhead would regularly pass over this point once a day, every day, and then sweep out into space It is this feature of a stable perigee over a selected largei — especially if that point occurs within an unfriendly naiion — which consumes a provocation of the first magnitude. The pattern on the earth of ihe subsatellite point will be a figure 8 with the center of the 8 on the equator, but every time the sate!- lite is at perigee it will be over the designated point on the earth, be that point an island or a city.
