When space ships and satellites leave earth, they take a certain amount of matter with them i.e., they weigh a certain amount. When that is gone from the earth, the earth could be said to be "lighter" even though in a very very minute way. Also when they leave earth's atmosphere, and also when they re-enter they are creating friction with the earth's ozone aren't they? So taking these two factors into account, isn't it possible that the earth's spin and movement around the sun and universe could be ever so slightly warped over time, creating a new orbit for earth, and maybe even chaging the climate of the whole world? Thanks in advance
