Clarke Edit

Am I correct in assuming the Clarke of "Clarke orbits" is Arthur C.? I've only read a bit of his work, so I wanted to make sure. Seemed like something that should be clarified. Fleurdelista 04:59, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Not sure I know what you're talking about but, Arthur C. Clarke, the writer, is generally considered to have come up with the idea of communications satellites so most likely yes. I don't think this has anything to to with the article or Trek though. — Vince47 05:15, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Aerosynchronous Edit

I noticed this article includes the term aerosynchronous/-stationary a few times. Is this a typo? Surely the correct term is areosynchronous. (Derived from Greek god Ares) The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

I think it is derived from whatever root gives us aerospace, so it isn't spelled incorrectly. --OuroborosCobra talk 18:34, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, the anon is quite correct - the terms are being used in discussing orbits around Mars, so areosynchronous orbit and areostationary are the correct spellings. -- Michael Warren | Talk 19:07, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
