Satellites are launched into orbit to be used for many purposes– they help scientists study Earth and space, track weather, improve navigation and relay communications like TV signals and phone calls.
Since the launch of the first satellite in 1957, technology has rapidly evolved, and the number of satellites that now orbit the Earth is growing substantially.
While they’re often not acknowledged day-to-day, the role that satellites play in our lives each day is hugely significant in the way that they contribute to modern conveniences that make all our lives increasingly easier and safer.
