Thanks OWN. :thumbs_up:

Why is the International Space Station not set up for a geosynchronous or geostationary orbit?

Agree with Imberbe. It would have been "attached" to a point on earth and would complete one orbit in 24 hrs like the comms sats above the equator

Has it got to do with elliptical orbits?

In addition to the above :)

The ISS is located in LEO (Low earth orbit) and provides a relatively safe location to test spacecraft systems that will be required for long-duration missions to the Moon and Mars.
If it was set up for geosynchronus or geostationary orbit it would be significantly further from the earth.
