Artificial Satellites

Artificial Satellites are objects launched from earth to orbit earth or other planets. Satellites are used for communication, remote sensing, weather forecasting, and other purposes. This category is for questions about satellites in general or specific satellites.
HST was transported into orbit aboard Space Shuttle Discovery (mission STS-31) in April 1990. It was scheduled to be orbited earlier, but the shutdown of the Shuttle program following the Challenger accident delayed its deployment, not to mention increasing its maintenance cost because it sat on the...
It gets constantly monitored for software errors and if one pops upit gets fixed strait away also and hard ware problems can not befixed.
Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to go into orbit,launched 4 October 1957.
Thick clouds, satellite malfunctions ect.
The Hubble Space Telescope is designed to see deep into space. Soit has taken many fascinating photos of the outer reaches of theuniverse, or in our own galaxy. It has accomplished taking manyphotos for scientists to study, and for us to see.
35 satellites were sent to space between 2000 and 2010
The HST First Servicing Mission occurred over a 10 day period on board Space Shuttle Endeavour (STS-61) in December, 1993 - all of us on the HST program held our breath as the Astronauts installed COSTAR, the corrective optical unit that compensated for the minor defect in the primary mirror (4...
The International Space Station is a large spacecraft in orbitaround Earth. It serves as a home where crews of astronauts andcosmonauts live. The space station is also a unique sciencelaboratory. Several nations worked together to build and use thespace station. The space station is made of parts...
to take photographs of very distant galaxies, and show data of themto NASA. It is used, because there is too much light pollution in alot of places on Earth, making it hard to use a telescope, but inspace there is no light pollution (therefore, it can see thegalaxies that we can't see on Earth).
Alouette 1 Alouette 2 ISIS-I ISIS-II RADARSAT-1 SCISAT-1 RADARSAT-2 CASSIOPE Since you weren't specific I made a list
because when they break we cant watch tv #
Because there could be weapons of mass destruction aboard it + theycan use the satellites for surveillance.
The pressurized sphere made of aluminum alloy had five primaryscientific objectives: Test the method of placing an artificialsatellite into Earth orbit; provide information on the density ofthe atmosphere by calculating its lifetime in orbit; test radio andoptical methods of orbital tracking;...
Anyone can request observation time on HST - in the past, the Hubble Director has opened up his own time for use by amateur astronomers. Competition for time is fierce though, and is generally given to academics and scientists, though "targets of viewing opportunity" are considered if it falls...
They found out what the stars are made of and they also got to see billions of light years away which was never possible.
It is so called the eye in the sky as man cansee far, far into space about 900 times compared from earth.
India has launched over 50 satellite's and the last known was IMS-1 .
Currently 17 . Canada . Japan . Russia . USA . Austria . Belgium . Denmark . France . Germany . Italy . Netherlands . Norway . Portugal . Spain . Sweden . Switzerland . UK . Brazil (Formerly)
Yes, it is. In fact, scientific studies have said that by now, it's about 9 billion miles away from the sun.
The International Space staion weighs 612,000 ounds!
The big benafit is that it is cheap , once in orbit, itis there for many a year and crews may come and go , but they all can use it.
A very interesting topic for speculation. Here are a few results that I can think of: -- If you use a little dish on the corner of your house for your TV, then your TV would all go dark. -- The GPS in your car wouldn't work. Neither would the GPS in your cellphone, or in all the field...
5 million dollars You can visit this website for more info:
The International Space Station is only visible in a given placeevery few weeks and the times vary. Sometimes it is harder to see,like if it is passing in daylight. Lots of websites will give youinformation on where it is and if it is passing your area. HeavensAbove is one such site.
there is no atmospheric distortion, allowing a better, unobstructed view of the cosmos.
All the capsules are locked together and are secured.
Satellites orbit in the thermosphere or exosphere where there is nowind and drag is negligible.
A telescope lets you see far away objects. A satellite is something that orbits something else. A satellite telescope is a big telescope is space that orbits a planet, usually to take photo's of the universe
There is no atmosphere distortion in space looking out.
No. To remain in orbit it needs to have a certain speed, and that speed will only match the surface speed of the earth on a certain height. To go lower it'd have to go slower, and then it'd fall.
created so that the soviet union can beat the usa in the race to be the first country to launch a satellite into space.
I don"t know but NASA admits there is a planet of mainly Carbonite ( Diamond ) composition.
Anything in "orbit" is falling into the object that its orbiting ... and constantly missing. Because by the time the (orbiting) object has fallen far enough to hit ... the object it is orbiting has moved far enough so that they miss each other.
Yes - there are several satellites that have escaped our solar system, however two of them are now non-functioning. "New Horizons" launched in 2006, is on it's way to Pluto right now and should be there by 2015. After it's done it's "job" it will keep going on and on into the dark abyss of space....
it burns off due to friction associated with the gravitational pull of the earth. it may appear as a shooting star during its process of burning.
this is a good question.scientists and astronomers should work on this.
The Hubble telescope can take extremely detailed pictures usingmirrors in space.
losing oxygen and space ships crash and blowing up
The Sport Satellite has a different hood unique to the sport satellite (not a roadrunner hood) the dash says sport satellite as well. The sport satellites are a little more rare and are worth more then a plain satellite.
HST has never been brought back to Earth since it was deployed, though bringing it back to Earth onboard a Shuttle after the mirror flaw was discovered was seriously discussed at NASA HQ. In the end, the cost and risk of damage to HST should such a flight have occurred, would've outweighed the...
Sputnik and space probes are artificial satellites
The Dog's name was Laiki. Food and water was supplied to her, despite this the dog died within a few hours due to heat.
The satellites of Uranus revolve around the planet in planes almost perpendicular to its orbit.
The first artificial satellite, Sputnik I, was launched by the USSR(Russia) in 1957. Following its launch on October 4, Russia launched Sputnik 2 onNovember 3. Sputnik 3 was not launched until May, 1958 followingthe US Explorer and Vanguard satellites in January and March.
Sputnik 1 was a satellite launched by Russia, and the first eversatellite to orbit around the Earth. It was launched on October 4,1957.
I think the Hubble Space Telescopes was made by the NASA but they named the Hubble Space Telescope was named by Edwid Hubble
On the 20th of November 1998, the Russian built module Zarya, became the first module of the International Space Station to be launched into space. A couple of days later, on the 4th of December, the fist American built module, Unity, was launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard the...
Yes you can call it one.as it orbits the earth. Yes it is a man made satellite in orbit round the Earth.
Its a centripetal force, whose origin/source is gravitation.
artificial satellite.
A polar orbit would allow a satellite to view any point on the Earth's surface from (nearly) directly overhead. The times for a given location would depend on the altitude and the speed of the orbit. The advantages are a minimal angle to the specific point below the satellite's path, which would...
Yes. They accelerate (change the direction of their movement) towards Earth, and this may be labelled as "falling". Yes. They accelerate (change the direction of their movement) towards Earth, and this may be labelled as "falling". Yes. They accelerate (change the direction of their movement)...
X-rays can't go through the atmosphere (luckily, cause you'd get cancer if they did). To observe X-rays origninating from space, you need to be outside the atmosphere.
War, famine, death, any disaster - with the comet being the herald.
435 including 195 commercial,122 goverment,111 military and 7 civil satellites.
it locates were you are
the father away it is the longer it takes to get here
It depends on the company and the type of emplyment (contract, full-time, etc) and location, but you can expect somewhere between 70-100k
The universe is roughly 14 billion years old.

It was a soviet launched sattelite, the first artificial sattellite. It essentially created both the space race, and a large-scale atomic missile fear and spurred the arms race.
No one. Only some electronics.
There are 2 key pieces of electronics aboard HST that if they were to fail would essentially end HST's service life: Fine Guidance Sensors (FGS) are arguably the single most key pieces of electronics on HST. The FGS's are what point HST and keep it locked in position while observations are...
Ease of targeting for up-link, and inversely, consistency in the satellite's geographical area of influence.
I don't know, the current GPS system has 30 operational and healthy satellites.
Nope, he is still alive at the age of 74 and lives in Chicago, Illinois.
In FDMA all users share the satellite simultaneously but each user transmits at single frequency. FDMA can be used with both analog and digital signal. FDMA requires high-performing filters in the radio hardware, in contrast to TDMA and CDMA
First, you have to decide where space starts. One possibility might be to say that space starts where the air is thin enough so that an artificial satellite could do an orbit without getting dragged down. NASA's mission control uses 76 miles (122 km) as their re-entry altitude. That's...
According to the Spotthestation on NASA.gov you can see theInternational Space Station without any optical aid, so binocularsmay allow you to make out some detail.
what is the purpose of the space station? The mission of the International Space Station is to enable long-term exploration of space and provide benefits to people on Earth. With six state-of-the-art laboratories, the Space Station will be the premiere research facility in space, four times...
There are a number of different reasons. The first few satellites were sent up just to see if it could be done. The first few Sputnik satellites did nothing other than send radio beeps, and the first few Vanguard birds did little more. Then there were weather satellites, and then...
Geostationary orbital altitude = 35,786 km (22,236 miles) Earth average equatorial radius = 6,373 km (3,960 miles) Geostationary orbital diameter = 42,159 km (26,196 miles) Corresponding circumference = 264,893 km (164,594 miles)
first stage: engine of the rocket is put on. second stage: lower part of the rocket splits. then the main part of the rocket enters the space and revolve around the earth.
1. NASA 2. ESA, Russia 3. European Space agency 4. China 5. JAXA. Japan/ ISRO, India
They will pull it back to Earth. It will get burned up long before it hits the ground. The reason for doing this is because the HST is getting old and it would take too much time and money to fix it.
the United States of America, Russian Federation, Japan, Canada and eleven member states of the European Space Agency (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom).
Space missions cost a lot of money, tax payers after all. About 300 million dollars.
Such a satellite must be fairly close to the Earth's surface.
The sputniks themselves - not much. They were rather crudedevices with a limited ability. . But they proved that we could build stuff that worked in space,and launch them there. . This opened the road for space exploration, and the more widelyuseful satellites like weather satellites,...
There was more than one Sputnik. Sputnik was a common name forvehicles in the early Russian / Soviet Space programme, Sputnik 1,Sputnik 2 etc They were all invented by the Russians AKA Soviet Union. The team, at least for the first Sputniks, was lead by SergeiKorolev
Yes, each companies dish is made to work only with their electronics (box).
