Satellites orbit celestial bodies because the force of gravity (always attractive) is balanced with the satellites forward momentum. Think of it as constantly falling over the edge of the Earth. In other words, if you could hit a golf ball far and fast enough, it would fall over the edge of Earth and keep going. If you remove gravity, it would shoot off into space in a straight line. If you remove forward momentum, it will fall to the ground. (see link) == ==
Navigation. The Global Positioning System (GPS) provides location and time information for anywhere on the Earth via a series of satellites in geostationary orbits. The time it takes for the driver/pilot to send a signal to the satellites and receive it back again can be used to work out how far away you are from the satellites, which is used to work out where you are.
