Most rotate east to west - the same direction as the Earth below.
This is a requirement for geostationary orbit, and requires the least energy for launch.
But there are other sattelites that travel in any other conceivable direction;
the most common "weird" direction is pole to pole.
Communication satellites orbit around the Earth.Communication satellites orbit around the Earth.Communication satellites orbit around the Earth.Communication satellites orbit around the Earth.
No. The satellites orbit in the Exosphere layer.
Communication satellites are lifted into orbit by rockets.
Satellites, orbit in outer space. They do not orbit in the Earth's Atmosphere.
Satellites cannot orbit the US; they orbit the Earth, and there are several thousand of them.
Satellites don't orbit in the atmosphere. period.
Yes, the satellites orbit in a geosynchronous orbit, as with most all communications satellites. (Some exceptions are satellites such as the global positioning satellites.)
The tv satellites orbit called is a geo stationery.
Mercury has no known natural satellites (moons) or man made satellites currently in orbit around it.
Mercury is in direct orbit around the sun, it has no known natural satellites, and is not in orbit around any.
GPS satellites orbit at 11,000 nautical miles above the Earth
Planets orbit a sun. Satellites (man-made or natural) orbit planets.
The Earth orbit in which satellites appear to be stationary is called the, "Geostationary Orbit". Some call it a synchronous orbit.
there is no satellites orbiting Saturn
No satellites orbit Venus
Specifically, yes there are satellites that orbit Saturn. The satellites are the moons of Saturn.
Generally, no. If the altitude of the orbit is different, the speed of the orbit will also differ, and the two satellites will diverge. About the only exception is for geosynchronous satellites, which all share roughly the same orbit a degree or two apart.
Circum polar satellites.
No. That only applies to low Earth orbit. Geostationary satellites orbit beyond it.
The layer of the atmosphere where satellites orbit is called the Exosphere. This is the outermost layer of the atmosphere above the Earth.
There are lots and lots of satellites in orbit around Earth, too numerous to list. And some satellites are secret. I am adding a link to a list of geosynchronous satellites I found. That doesn't answer anything
With large number of low-earth-orbit satellites and the geo-synchronous orbit stuffed full of communications satellites, there aren't all THAT many "medium" altitude satellites. But there are some. The GPS navigation satellites, for example, are in highly inclined 12-hour orbits, and an unknown number of military "spy" satellites are in that middle range.
There are approximately 560 currently functional satellites in orbit, there are around 8000 total man made satellites in orbit. The SSN tracks everything in orbit over the size of 10cm and in its history has tracked over 26000 objects to date.
