also use it’s capability for imaging enhancement, which allows you to zoom in on
someone’s nose hairs all the way from space.

of a rocket.

A satellite is a secondary object that revolves in a closed orbit around
a planet or the sun, but an artificial satellite is used to revolve around the
All artificial satellites consist of certain features in common. They include
radar for altitude measurements, sensors such as optical devices in observation
satellites, receivers and transmitters in communication satellites, and stable
blocked from the sun by the Earth. These batteries in turn are recharged by the
first satellite ever to be in space. The United States followed by launching

several satellites can be launched simultaneously from the shuttle and the
shuttle can then land for reuse and financial purposes. The space shuttles also
have the capability to retrieve a satellite from orbit and bring it down to
earth for repairs or destruction. Once the satellite is released from the space
shuttle, the antenna on the satellite will receive a signal from earth that will
activate it’s rockets to move it into orbit. Once in orbit, The antenna will
receive another signal telling the satellite to erect it’s solar panels (bottom).
Then the control center on earth will upload a program to the satellite telling
it to use it’s censors to maintain a natural orbit with earth. The satellite
will then pick a target point on earth, and stay above that point for the
remainder of it’ s life. Once a satellite shuts down, the program uploaded to
the satellite will tell it to fold up it’s solar panels and remain in its orbit.
Several days after the shut down, a space shuttle will pick up the satellite for
repairs or replacement of new cells.

Satellites are becoming more and more useful as technology advances. Computers
are turning towards the Internet, telephones are turning towards video-
long as satellites orbit the earth, you might as well take advantage of them now,
before it’s too late.
