Nice problem group. The descriptions for the satellite orbit problems were quite technical, and some further intermediate problems to build on later would've been nice (e.g. the orbital period of a satellite in an elliptical orbit), but still  good one!
Tip: It is easy to miss the words "degrees per day" in the problem description.
Be aware that if you plan on calling the function developed in Problem 5 from Problem 10 then you must change the radius of the earth.
In Problem 5 the earth radius used is 6371 k m; = 6371000 m
In Problem 10 the earth radius used is 6378137 m;
