WHAT DO THEY DO?? satellites gather information about weather: so we would be able to track whats coming our way! sends back signals so our cellphones work, and also tracks oceans, rivers, streams, highways, & roads for GPS! they can do this by orbits called POLAR & GEOSTATIONARY orbits. POLAR ORBITS- reaches 700 to 800 kilometers with a orbital period of 98 to 102 minutes. http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/rs/sat/poes/home.rxml GEOSTATIONARY ORBITS- a circular orbit in the Earths equilateral plane, any point on which revolves about the Earth in tha same direction & the same period as the Earth's rotation. many people have been studying the effects of manmade satellites. they say that this piece od technology can cause cancet by..... CELL PHONES ! also, a satellite being launched into outerspace can do damage to the ozone layer by the fuel produced in the rocket. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING ! :D satellites can be useful to our world because it helps relay information from one point to another.
