    Dear Journey North,

    We have calculated that the satellite is moving at a speed of 14,880 miles
    per hour. We calculated the number of hours in 101 minutes (1.68
    hours)and then we divided 25,000 miles (what we think is the distance
    around the earth in miles) by 1.68 and got the answer 14,880 miles per

    Thank you,

    Jeff and Micheal
