How much thrust is necessary to launch a regulation size FIFA soccer ball into orbit around the Earth. Let? Let us assume a size 5 whichwhich weighs between 420g and 450g. Remember -Remember, we will need thrust to ensure the ball will continuecontinue until the minimum altitude and orbital velocity have been attained otherwise it will fall back to the Earth. Minimum altitude is rarely desirable, therefore thrust must continue to be generated to gain additional orbital altitude.

Also -, would the ball explode from the air pressure?
