    Earth Observation satellites vary according to the type of orbit they have, the payload they carry, and, from the point of view of imaging instruments, the spatial resolution, spectral characteristics and swath width of the sensors. All these parameters are designed at the beginning of the mission definition depending on the application the satellite mission is targeting. Discover more about past, operational and future missions in the Satellite Missions database, which offers an extensive list of articles about spaceborne EO missions and sensors. Categorised from A to Z and by Space Agency, there are over in-depth articles of satellite missions from to

    Welcome to Satellite Map. This application maps the current location of ab manmade objects orbiting the Earth. Use the Preset dropdown menu to conveniently select a subset of satellites, for example, Russian or low earth orbit satellites. Selected satellites are colored red. Unfortunately, the rocket crashed and burned on the launchpad. Shortly after, on Jan. 31, , the U.S. finally matched the success of the Soviets by using a plan adopted by Wernher von Braun, which called for a U.S. Redstone rocket to propel a satellite -- Explorer 1 -- into Earth's orbit.

      Taking Off. Although the first images of Earth from space were actually taken in from a camera attached to a V-2 rocket over the New Mexico desert, the era of satellite remote sensing began with the launch of Sputnik 1, which completed an orbit of the Earth every 96 minutes and transmitted radio signals that could be received on Earth.   The trajectory data, which describes the motion of a satellite, can take on a variety of formats. We provide this data as either Keplerian osculating or mean element sets, which include the TWO-LINE and AMSAT formats. In general, it takes at least six parameters to uniquely define an orbit and a satellite's position within the orbit.

A catalogue of positional data of the U.S. earth satellite Zeta (project score) By W. Ripley. Abstract. Mode of access: Document AD Topics: Artificial satellites, Artificial satellites.

Publisher: Bedford, Mass Author: W. Ripley. The idea of an artificial satellite in orbital flight was first suggested by Sir Isaac Newton in his book Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica ().

He pointed out that a cannonball shot at a sufficient velocity from atop a mountain in a direction parallel to the horizon would go all the way around Earth before falling.

Although the object would tend to fall toward Earth’s surface. 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.

On 4 October the Soviet Union launched the world's first artificial satellite, Sputnik then, about 8, satellites from more than 40 countries have been launched. The United States Space Surveillance Network detects, tracks, catalogs and identifies artificial objects orbiting Earth, e.g.

active/inactive satellites, spent rocket bodies, or fragmentation system is the responsibility of the Joint Functional Component Command for Space, part of the United States Space Force (formerly USSPACECOM (United States Space Command)).

An Earth observation satellite or Earth remote sensing satellite is a satellite used or designed for Earth observation from orbit, similar to spy satellites but intended for non-military uses such as environmental monitoring, meteorology, map making and others.

The first occurrence of satellite remote sensing can be dated to the launch of the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, by the. Books at Amazon. The Books homepage helps you explore Earth's Biggest Bookstore without ever leaving the comfort of your couch.

satellite was the Explorer, which discovered the inner Van Allen radiation Vangaurd series of rockets in the late 50's also contributed.

So one Zeta 2 Reticulum 4 year is equal to roughly earth years OR days. And Zeta 2 Reticulum 4 is in roughly the same position in Zeta 2 Reticuli’s “life-zone” as the Earth is in the Sun’s “life-zone.” Zeta 2 Retituli is a G1V spectral class star, the Sun is a G2V.

information in its unique ability to acquire high-resolution, large-area image data on a daily basis. The RapidEye system is able to collect an unprecedented 4 million square kilometers of data per day at meter nominal ground resolution.

Each satellite measures less than one cubic meter and weighs kg (bus + payload), and has. The database is updated three times a year. The database contains 28 types of data for each satellite, including technical information about each satellite (mass, power, launch date, expected lifetime) and its orbit (apogee, perigee, inclination, and period), as well as information on what the satellite is used for, and who owns, operates, and built the satellite.

NASA launches Pioneer 1. A project inherited from the U.S. Army, Pioneer 1 became NASA’s first spacecraft. Meant to go into lunar orbit and carrying a TV camera to study the moon's surface, a mechanical problem limited the spacecraft to sending 43 minutes of data back before re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.

Sputnik 1 (/ ˈ s p ʊ t n ɪ k / or / ˈ s p ʌ t n ɪ k /; "Satellite-1", or "PS-1", Простейший Спутник-1 or Prosteyshiy Sputnik-1, "Elementary Satellite 1") was the first artificial Earth satellite.

The Soviet Union launched it into an elliptical low Earth orbit on 4 October It orbited for three weeks before its batteries died and then silently for two more months. This article is about artificial satellites.

For natural satellites, also known as moons, see Natural satellite. For other uses, see Sate. Satellite communication, in telecommunications, the use of artificial satellites to provide communication links between various points on ite communications play a vital role in the global telecommunications system.

Approximately 2, artificial satellites orbiting Earth relay analog and digital signals carrying voice, video, and data to and from one or. For a satellite in Earth orbit, if we ignore atmospheric drag and maneuvering, the state vector would be comprised of the satellite's position and velocity.

Knowing the position alone would not be sufficient, since a satellite with zero velocity would fall to Earth while one with orbital velocity would not, even if the satellites start at the.
