The largest satellite orbiting the Earth is the Moon.
The first successful earth-orbiting artificial satellite was launched from the USSR in October 1957. Once it had achieved orbit, its name was announced to the world as "Sputnik-1".
In 1957, the USSR launched the first satellite, Sputnik 1
A natural satellite has no use as such. A natural satellite is something that is not man-made and is orbiting another object in space. There are many man-made satellites orbiting the Earth, but the moon is the only natural satellite of the Earth. The Moon has a formal name and is known as La Luna. Many of the other planets of our solar system have more than one moon and so have many natural satellites. There are also some man-made satellites orbiting planets, main for exploratory purposes.
There is more than one satellite on earth!
The moon is the only natural satellite the Earth has. The Moon has a formal name and is known as La Luna. A natural satellite is something orbiting another body, that is not man-made. There are many man-made satellites orbiting the Earth, but the moon is the only natural satellite. The Moon itself has no known natural satellites. Many of the other planets of our solar system have more than one moon and so have many natural satellites.The Moon, orbits at an average distance of 234,000 miles (376,000 km). The Moon has a diameter of about 2100 miles (3400 km), about one-fourth that of Earth. It is the fifth-largest moon in the solar system.
"Luna" is the name given to the natural satellite of the earth.
A satellite is an object in space that is orbiting another object. The moon is a natural satellite of the earth. Man-made satellites orbit the earth just outside the earth atmosphere and used for many purposes such as GPS, telecommunications, weather, and spying to name a few. Satellites are in space
because the name satellite is given to the natural satellite of the earth.by:shewaye nanne
The first satellite launched into space was the Sputnik I, but before that have you ever considered the fact that a satellite is any object that orbits a heavenly body? The VERY first satellite was in fact the moon. But the first MAN-MADE satellite was Sputnik I launched by USSR.
The first satellite was 'Sputnik'
Titan is Saturn's largest moon.
A Satellite (like our moon) Orbiting bodies are in fact orbiting each other, so that there are binary stars (two stars of about equal size) that are orbiting each other, or even binary planets.
Saturn's biggest moon is Titan.
A comet .
We have assigned names of things obviously. Planet is the name for those which goes around the sun. And satellite is the one which goes around the planet. So earth is a planet and not considered as satellite. Moon is the natural satellite to our earth.
Jupiter has the largest moon in the Solar System orbiting it. The moon's name is Ganymede.
The proper English name for the our Satellite is " The Moon".
We call it the moon.
