How many people recorded in our history have managed to reshape the world by daring to do what others are not smart or brave enough to?

I assume the minimum altitude required for a successful geostationary orbit. Though seems like something with a more precise target.

We're still waiting for that awesome BulgariaSat-1 landing video with the rocket going horizontally! Any chances we will see it?

Apogee - the point in the orbit of the moon or a satellite at which it is furthest from the earth.

Perigee - closest point in orbit. Illustration slightly misleading, because earth not drawn at correct location of ellipse. [Mr pedantic]
