TOTALLY incorrect data about the earth's roche limit.
« on: July 16, 2018, 10:34:08 AM »
According to literature
http://adsbit.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/nph-iarticle_query?1974ApJ...191..577A&defaultprint=YES&filetype=.pdf
Roche limit is at 2.44 earth radi distance from the center, but that's for a fluid satellite! In US 2 there are not fluid satellithe, but rigids satellite, like the moon. This means tat the roche limit should be edited to 1.44 earth radi as literature says. a solid satellite will never break at a distance between 1.44 radi  e 2.44 earth radi (starting from the center of earth)
