    My name is Kevin Bushey from North Habersham Middle School. I would
    like to respond to Challenge Question #2; If the satellite goes around
    the earth every 101 minutes,how fast is it moving? I changed 101
    minutes to decimal which came up as 1.68. Then I multiplied 1.68 by
    24,902(earth's circumference) and came up with 14,822 miles per hour
    which is how fast the satellite would be moving.
