Suppose a satellite is in a low-Earth orbit. Is it possible that the satellite will eventually fall to the ground? Why or why not?

To fall to Earth, the satellite must lose some of its orbital energy. In low-Earth orbit, this can happen because the earth's atmosphere extends to high altitudes and exerts some atmospheric drag on the satellite.
