A satellite orbits another body. The moon is a natural satellite of the earth. For awhile, LCROSS was a satellite of the moon (until we smashed it into the lunar surface).


Pallene is a very small natural satellite (moon) of Saturn.


In astronomy a satellite orbits another larger celestial body. The Moon is a satellite of Earth. Earth is a satellite of the Sun, but, for clarity, we don't usually refer to planets as satellites.


A "satellite" is an object that orbits around another object. In astronomy terms, we think of them as being bound by gravity, but the word "satellite" is often used to refer to political or social terms as well. In astronomy, then, the Moon is a satellite of the Earth, the Earth is a satellite of the Sun. The Lesser and Greater Magellanic Clouds are small galaxies which are satellites of the Milky Way.


i suppose it's given us the idea for satellite technology mainly because the moon is a natural satellite.


There are many different types of Satellite. Some them are listed below:- 1. The Military Satellite 2. Weather Satellite 3. Communication Satellite 4. Space Stations 5. Navigational Satellite 6. Astronomy Satellite 7. Earth Observation Satellite 8. Rescue Satellite 9. Resource Satellite 10. Meterological Satellite



It was the mettatelium3980. It was created by Robert Whellius. First sent into space in 1935. Sources: Astronomy School; childhood space camp ; NASA astronomy studies


Neptune has a total of 13 known satelites, or moons. In astronomy the word satellite means a celestial body orbiting a planet. Earth has 1 satellite


The Astronomical Netherlands Satellite was launched. It was an x-ray and ultraviolet telescope.


A satellite is any mass that orbits a larger mass. A satellite may be a planet, moon, asteroid, or comet. The word 'satellite' is also used to refer to any man-made object launched to orbit Earth or another planetary body. Artificial satellites may be spacecraft or orbiting telescopes.



Yes, many satellites are used for a range of astronomical observations the most famous of which would be the Hubble Space Telescope.


IN COMMUNICATIONS: Satellite uses satellite (orbiting) relay-stations in Space but Terrestrial uses cable or antenna-to-antenna signals based entirely on Earth to broadcast your television, radio or cell-phone :) ++++ IN ASTRONOMY: Terrestrial means Earth- (or planet-) bound; a Satellite is any natural or man-made object that orbits a planet. The Moon is a satellite of the Earth.

This depends on the type of satellite that you're talking about.Astronomy satellite:- Create star maps- Take pictures of other planets (or Earth)- They can be used to study objects like black holesCommunication satellite:- Allow television, radio, and telephone transmission to travel long distancesReconnaissance satellite:- These satellites are used to "spy" on other countriesThere are plenty of types of satellites you should definitely specify! =)


The different fields in astronomy are planetary science, cosmoligy, solar astronomy stellar astronomy, galactic astronomy, and extragalactic astronomy.


Homework?! Weather monitoring, satellite navigation, aerial photography, communications, broadcasting and astronomy are 6 big uses.

astronomyThat is called "astronomy".Astronomy


It is. In popular usage, the word "satellite" usually refers to objects in orbit around planets, but its definition is much wider than that. The word actually means any object or entity that exists completely within the influence of another similar object or entity. In astronomy, it's entirely correct to call Sputnik a satellite of the earth, earth a satellite of the sun, and binary star components satellites of each other.
