"...several qualities must be possessed" is a pretty awkward phrase to introduce with an edit. I guess you were just trying to edit enough to meet the minimum?

comment Why can't light escape from a black hole?
So if I'm understanding this right, the altitude works as a "gravity assist" that helps you to achieve escape velocity. The escape velocity is still the same, but you can get to it with less initial speed from a higher altitude.

Ah, I see. The escape velocity is factoring in the "free" velocity you get from gravitational pull if going back down (but angled enough to miss the planet). Is that right?

jmarina, that's interesting, I haven't heard that. Would you mind providing a link with more info or the name of the effect you're describing?
