Satellite


This page deals with the goings-on to do with things going around in space, whether they be weather satellites, satellite TV systems, satellite navigation, or other types of satellite. You may be interested to know that if you look at the night sky on a clear night for a few minutes, you can sometimes see satellites going over. This is explained on the page of basic astronomy. From a more earthly perspective, satellites provide a variety of useful services, and some of them are listed here, with contacts...

Incidentally, in the early history of spaceflight, it was believed that satellites would have to be huge space stations with astronauts onboard to service the valve equipment. Modern miniaturisation has changed that model of space satellites so much that a satellite can be the size of a bucket and still have all the internal microelectronics to do the job it's been put up there for.
