+ - New coms satellite abandoned due to orbital patent->

Submitted by EreIamJH
EreIamJH (180023) writes "AMC-14, a commercial geostationary satellite launched last month, failed to reach its intended orbit. The owner wanted to shunt the satellite into a useful orbit by slingshoting it around the moon, but the plan (and the new satellite) was abandoned when Boeing claimed that it had a patent on that orbital manoeuvre."
