    I was asked this question
    
    If a perfectly spherical sattelite orbits the earth in any given orbit, will the satellite rotate
    as it orbits the earth?  
    
    I would think over time, becuse of various forces acting on it, it would start to rotate. But I
    wish to see what people with way more interest in theory's think
    
    His email is chrisgomes@rogers.com
