What is the earth's own satellite?
the moon is the earths own satellite any other satellite that we have is man made is its not a true satellite on the earth
No, it's a space telescope. In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is some object that has been placed into orbit by humans. Such objects are sometimes called artificial satellites to distinguish them from earths natural satellite the moon. SO.... the hubble space telescope could be called a satellite.
Not all of them do; only "geosynchronous" satellites do. The orbit of a satellite is determined by the purpose of the satellite. Geosynchronous communications satellites appear to hang suspended in the sky, BECAUSE their orbit is there, which means that your antenna doesn't have to track with a moving satellite.
The velocity of the satellite along with the earths gravitational pull work together to keep a satellite from either flying out into space or burning up in the atmosphere. They have to launch a satellite at a precise speed to make sure that the speed at which the satellite falls to earth matches the earth's curvature. The speed is 8000 meters a second.
