A satellite is built up of microscopic telescopes with cameras and mirrors. They have strong sight and can spot objects or different planets or stars from millions of miles away. They then collect the data and that data is sent through signals into a giant dish with antennas that send the data through wires and into the computers for astronomers or scientist to examine.
