What laws of physics are violated when Proton's upper stages routinely take
off from Baikonur and make it all the way to zero-degree inclination and
geostationary altitude?! It is only a matter of enough propellant.

Considering "what if" scenarios might help to understand how to plan for the
future, IMHO. Note how many changes post-Columbia missions had: flights
within reach of the station, tiles inspections etc.
