How well does GPS work with satellites in LEO?  (NavStars are in
higher orbit, right?)  Is it accurate?  You'd have to sort of do a
reverse bank shot thing because you're not dealing with the
satellite's position, but the position of its footprint.  How would
that work?  I see lots of math in someone's future!  :-D
