What is the favourite destination of spacecraft? Mars or the Moon? In fact, it is the Earth, or more exactly the Earth's orbit! But what do we mean by spacecraft? Well , we are talking about satellites in particular.

HOW ARE SATELLITES SENT INTO ORBIT? WHAT ARE THEY FOR ?

Thousands of satellites revolve around our planet and enable our telecommunications, geolocation and “take the pulse” of our spaceship Earth.

Thousands of satellites revolve around our planet and enable our telecommunications, geolocation and “take the pulse” of our spaceship Earth :

  1. how satellites tell us about climate change
  2. give our position to within a few metres
  3. transmit distress messages
  4. help planes land
  5. help farmers to better irrigate their fields
  6. help scientists to monitor the life of animals, etc.

SATELLITES ARE ALSO IN OUR PHONE AND AT HOME

Satellites known as messengers are also present in your home and on you. They help you optimise your professional activities, your pastimes and your travels thanks to applications. So are we addicted to satellites? Answer in Spaceship Earth
