http://qi.com/infocloud/satellites saya Arthur C. Clarke thought up Geostationary orbits.

Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geostationary_orbit disagrees
"The concept was first proposed by Herman Potočnik in 1928 and popularised by the science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke in a paper in Wireless World in 1945"

and cites "Extra-Terrestrial Relays Can Rocket Stations Give Worldwide Radio Coverage?" (PDF). Arthur C. Clark. October 1945. Archived from the original (PDF) on 2009-03-18. Retrieved 2009-03-04.
