Question: Do all satellites travel at the same speed?
Asked by ROYLE to James, Dominic, Kevin on 15 Mar 2017.
answered on 15 Mar 2017:
Nope, they can and do travel at different speeds.
The orbit that the satellite is the main factor. The closer the satellite is to Earth, the faster it’ll go.
For missions outside Earth orbit, it’ll be dependent on things like the speed it was released at from the rocket, it’s own propulsion system, mass, etc.

Do all satellites travel in the same direction when in orbit?
How are satellites realigned, so that they don't fall out of orbit?
