    In , two Soviet astronomers had been studying the satellite and theorized that it was likely a hollow moon put in place by a highly-advanced extraterrestrial race. Their theory was based on these observable anomalies, claiming the Moon was an artificial shell that had been inhabited internally for years. In the ``Early Bird Astronomy'' series, an introduction to satellites for the K-2 crowd: what satellites are, what they look like, how far above the earth's surface they are, how they communicate with earth, what they do. An adequate introduction, but curiously short on some details: How big are they? How much do they weigh? How complex are their .

Satellites informs the reader in detail about various artificial satellites and provides some of the history of these satellites. The book also describes how we use satellites in our lives today and the ways satellites may be used in our future. In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an object that has been intentionally placed into objects are called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as Earth's Moon..

A satellite is an object that orbits another object. In space, satellites may be made by man, or they may be moon is a natural satellite that orbits the man-made satellites also orbit the Earth, but some orbit other planets, such as Saturn, Venus or Mars, or the moon.

Satellites are used for many purposes. There are weather satellites, communications satellites. artificial satellite, object constructed by humans and placed in orbit around the earth or other celestial body (see also space probe).The satellite is lifted from the earth's surface by a rocket and, once placed in orbit, maintains its motion without further rocket propulsion.

The first artificial satellite, Sputnik I, was launched on Oct. 4,by the USSR; a test payload of a radio. They found that, using an example of 25, satellites in low-Earth orbit — which ranges from to 2, kilometres above Earth and with orbits.

In astronomy, a satellite is an object that orbits (goes around) a planet. There are several hundred natural satellites, or moons, in our Solar System.

Thousands of artificial (human-made) satellites have also been launched since These have many different uses, including taking pictures of the Sun, Earth, and other planets, and looking deep into space at black holes, and. Under Block-I, NAVSTAR 1 to 11 satellites were launched before to in two orbital planes of degree inclination.

Design life of these prototype test satellites was only five years but the operational period has been exceeded in most of the cases. The first Block-II production satellite was launched in February usingFile Size: KB. Get this from a library! Artificial satellites.
