Re: Could we raise orbit thru magnetorque?



Physics 102:
  A magnetic dipole cannot apply any force (torque) without interacting 
with an external system (field). The resultant force will be a vector 
force depending on the orientation of the two fields. This may cause a 
rotating moment (torque) or may not.

Cheers,
