Tayla Hackett, Stella Herrera, and Maggie Murphy Satellites! What is a Satellite? Our Satellite! Our Proposal! Blue Print! Bibliography The End! Satellites are used to transmit information from out in space to our world here. Satellites are used to take pictures of planets, run our GPS's, and give us cell phone service. Satellites rotate and orbit around our world. A rotating satellite rotates with the Earth. A satellite that orbits has it's own path around the Earth. When satellites die they can either be put in a grave-yard orbit, de-orbited, or remain in their own orbit and are controlled to avoid crashing other satellites. Satellites are controlled here in our very own Colorado at Shreiver Air Force Base! We decided to put our satellite out in Pitkin, Colorado. We decided this because there are no satellites near Pitkin providing cell phone services. Here is our 3-D Model of our satellite. We could have of chosen to put our satellite on a moon but we wanted to help better Pitkin, Colorado. It would cost about 650 million dollars to build the telephone service satellite we want to build. If we are sponsored we could provide phone service in an area in Colorado that had little to no service. "NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration." NASA. N.p., n.d.
