What would that do to communications satellites (GPS) placed in geosychronous orbits? Are they “smart” enough to automatically update their relative polar and equatorial positioning offsets?
No they would have to be repositioned manually by personnel at the ground station. I used to part of a USAF unit that was “flying” a geosynch bird.
The question would be, do they have enough fuel. Think spray cans. When they’re all out of propellant, they’re done.
Good one! The satellites will wobble just a bit (they do that anyway, it’s an n-body thing) as the Earth shifts, and barring a big shift, remain in their geostationary orbits.
