I still don’t understand the difference between Brilliant and Skill Share, especially since it seems like every educational channel is sponsored by both.

Thank you, now my broke ass can build a satellite.

Brilliant may be good at it, but for most people I would recommend Kerbal Space Program. You can learn all about orbits and much more. Its a scaled-down version of real solar system (although with mods you can get the real deal). Its really fun, and you can make your own rockets and satellites to learn about space travel. I love it and Im addicted to it, but be warned its not easy!
