### How far can a satellite go into orbit?

The commonly used altitude classifications are Low Earth Orbit
(LEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and High Earth Orbit (HEO). Low
Earth orbit is any orbit below 2000 km, and Medium Earth Orbit is
any orbit higher than that but still below the altitude for
geosynchronous orbit at 35786 km. High Earth Orbit is any orbit
higher than the altitude for geosynchronous orbit.
