What is the force (N) required to get a space craft of mass 1000kg into orbit at 3000km above the earth's surface? Assume the radius of the earth is 6370km.

Just gonna guess that you have to find the work done to get it up to there via GPE final minus GPE initial then use Work = Fs to find the force
