Orbits Telecomms Satellite projects

Satellites tell us an amazing range of things, if we know what to look for.
If you study Physics you already know an awful lot that can help you to understand:

  • how a satellite works
  • how it gets into orbit
  • how high it has to be to stay in the right orbit
  • how fast it needs to be travelling
  • how it sends and receives information
  • how to analyse the data from a satellite to find out what it is doing.
