I just read today's Arizona Daily Star, our local paper. There's an article about the Optics dept. at the Uof A where they made this super-lightweight mirror that's only a millimeter thick. They're designing it for next-generation space telescopes. So far so good. But out of all that coolness, the following statement:
"An object in geosynchronous orbit remains in a fixed position with respect to the Earth."
Since I'm being charitable today, I'll just leave it at "that could have been said better."
