Learn about the Orbital Mechanics of Satellites in our Space Academy under rocket science. Liftoff Home Did you know there are over eight thousand artificial objects orbiting Earth? Over 2,500 are satellites, operative and inoperative. The remaining objects are orbital debris: parts such as nosecone shrouds, lens, hatch covers, rocket bodies, payloads that have disintegrated or exploded, and even objects that "escape" from manned spacecraft during operations.

Data and Information Service NESDIS operates the satellites and manages the processing and distribution of millions
NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service - NESDIS operates the satellites and manages the processing and distribution of millions of bits of data and images these satellites produce daily. The prime customer for the satellite data is NOAA's National Weather Service, which uses satellite data to create forecasts for television, radio, and weather advisory services. NOAA's operational environmental satellite system is composed of: geostationary operational environmental satellites (GOES) for short-range warning and "nowcasting," and polar-orbiting environmental satellites (POES) for longer term forecasting. Both kinds of satellites are necessary for providing a complete global weather monitoring system. The satellites carry search and rescue instruments, and have helped save the lives of about 10,000 people to date. The satellites are also used to support aviation safety (volcanic ash detection), and maritime/shipping safety (ice monitoring and prediction). NOAA's CoastWatch Program - makes satellite data products and data from NOAA environmental buoys available to federal, state, and local marine scientists and coastal resource managers. These images of the Northeast, Southeast Caribbean, Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Coast, West Coast and Central Pacific are updated hourly. Chose "VIS" for visible, which can be seen only during daylight, or "IR" for infrared, which can be seen at any time of the day.

How Satellites Work
In little over a third of a century, the launching of a satellite has gone from stopping the nations' business to guaranteeing that it runs like clockwork. Today, satellites are commonplace tools of technology, like clocks, telephones, and computers. Satellites serve us for navigation, communications, environmental monitoring, and weather forecasting. Appropriately, the word satellite means an attendant. In 1957, the launching of the Russian satellite Sputnik changed the course of our nation. The United States immediately launched massive efforts to compete against a "backward" empire in a breakneck Race to the Moon. In the space of a decade, our nation of arm-chair explorers sat glued to their television sets while Alan Shepard went up and down in a Mercury capsule in 1961, as John Glenn circled the globe 3 times in 1962, and when Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon in 1969. That sense of discovery has become muted over time as we became accustomed to miracles of space travel. The launching of a Space Shuttle mission may not even come up in a class discussion of current events (unless those students are involved in the classroom use of satellite technology). Yet satellites bring those same students the Olympics, the weather, and news of other events from around the world that are considered "newsworthy." What is a satellite?

These pages form an index to useful web information discussing satellite constellations. You won't gain a complete picture of what any proposed constellation is capable of, or really in-depth technical details, but you will gain an idea of what the developments in this area are, where the industry and technology is headed - and you will pick up background knowledge of satellites along the way. These pages do not discuss stellar constellations beloved of night-sky watchers everywhere. This is not intended to be a guide to individual satellites in geostationary orbit . Nor is this one of those fashionable weblog things - a weblog is just a chonological most-recent-first diary where old entries are left unchanged, making less sense over time as context fades and links break, while this tries to be continually useful by updating text and links when possible although it's really something of a cluttered mess.
so what are satellite constellations and why am I interested in them, anyway?

The satellites of the giant outer planets are a surprisingly diverse group of bodies. Most are composed of mixtures of water and other ices, including most likely ammonia ice, and rocky material. An amazing variety of unusual and spectacular geologic features are observed on these satellites, including active volcanism on two of them, which are illustrated on these pages. Also discussed are some of the processes that form them and the important issues they raise for geologists. Click on each image to view at full resolution or to access individual Web pages. A few of these images are stereo (three-dimensional) images, which are highlighted by the stereo symbol. Additional 3-D images of the satellites are available on the 3-D Tour of the Solar System
The Galilean Satellites
The four large Galilean Satellites of Jupiter (from left to right in mosaic Io Europa Ganymede , and Callisto ) resemble a miniature solar system. The global density, relative amount of rocky material, and duration and intensity of geologic activity on each satellite all decrease with increasing distance from Jupiter. Each satellite is very distinctive in appearance and geologic history. Io, the densest and innermost major satellite, is volcanically active today. Europa has a highly fractured, young icy outer shell. Ganymede has a complex volcanic and tectonic history, and Callisto, the least dense and outermost satellite, is heavily cratered and rather bland by comparison. The geologic histories of these satellites are related to tidal deformation and heating, which is more intense closer to Jupiter.

They were used primarily in a military capacity, for activities such as navigation and espionage. Now they are an essential part of our daily lives. We see and recognize their use in weather reports, television transmission by DIRECTV and the DISH Network, and everyday telephone calls. In many other instances, satellites play a background role that escapes our notice:
  • Some newspapers and magazines are more timely because they transmit their text and images to multiple printing sites via satellite to speed local distribution.

20. Satellites Of Jupiter
Introductory information, focusing on discovery and naming.Category Science Astronomy Solar System Jupiter Moons......satellites of Jupiter. Jupiter has a large number of satellites. As theirdiscoverer, Galileo claimed the right to name the satellites.
Satellites of Jupiter
Jupiter has a large number of satellites. Of these, four are comparable to the Earth's Moon in size; the rest are orders of magnitude smaller. When Jupiter is at opposition and closest to the Earth, the stellar magnitude of its four large moons is between 5 and 6. This means that, were it not for the shielding brightness of Jupiter, these bodies would be visible with the naked eye. The aperture of the telescope used by Galileo in 1610 and its magnification thus brought these four "Galilean" satellites within his grasp. But first Galileo had to make adjustments to the instruments. When viewing bodies that are very bright and very small, the optical defects of the telescope can be crippling. By trial and error Galileo learned to stop down the aperture of his instrument until he could begin to make useful observations. At the end of 1609, as he was finishing his series of observations of the Moon, Jupiter was at opposition and the brightest object in the evening sky (not counting the Moon). When he had made the new adjustment to his instrument, he turned his attention to Jupiter. On 7 January 1610 he observed the planet and saw what he thought were three fixed stars near it, strung out on a line through the planet. This formation caught his attention, and he returned to it the following evening. Galileo's expectation was that Jupiter, which was then in its retrograde loop
