    A natural satellite whose diameter is 10^4 meters moves at velocity of 1 km/s in the direction normal to the magnetic field of a planet in a region where B=10^-7 Tesla. The satellite has appreciable conductivity.

    d) Someone suggests that this current could provide power for an artificial satellite traveling in the same direction and the same velocity. Inversely a current in the opposite direction could serve to propel the satellite. What is your opinion? Artificial satellite speeds are about 4 to 8 kilometers/second and |v x B| in the ionosphere and magnetosphere ranges from about 100 microvolt's/meter to 320 mill volts/meter.
