Satellites Orginal inventions & Patents Sputnik 1 was the first satellite
ever made and launched. It was
created by Segei korolev. Engineering Disciplines involved
in the creation of Sputnik 1. Aerospace Engineering
Electrical Engineering Aerospace engineering & Electrical engineering were only some of the disciplines involved in the making of Sputnik 1. Aerospace engineering is mostly
affiliated with the creation and
testing of space craft & satellites. Korolev could have used this discipline to make the propulsion system that the satellite would have used. S, A. (2012, August 28). Sputnik 1. Wikipedia. Retrieved August/September, 2012, from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sputnik_1

our everyday life.
Gps and weather are some examples of information that we get from sattelites. Patents

History of the satellite October 4th 1957: The Soviet union launched Sputnik 1

January 31st 1958: The Usa launched Explorer 1 July 28th 1958: NASA was formed

Aug 18th1960: The US launches Discoverer XIV, its first camera equipped spy satellite. Apr 12th 1961: Yuri Gagarin orbits
the Earth once and becomes the
first man in space.

Jul 31st 1964: Ranger 7 transmits the first close range images of the Moon. Nov 16th 1965: Venus 3 is launched. It becomes the first man made object to impact Venus on March 1, 1966
Apr 3rd 1966:Luna 10 becomes the first satellite to orbit the Moon. Jun 2nd 1966: Surveyor 1 soft-lands on the Moon.

Aug. 14 -Lunar Orbiter 1 enters orbit around the Moon and takes the first picture of the Earth from that distance. In the 1970s, NASA's Landsat program literally changed the way we look at our planet Earth. The first three Landsat satellites, launched in 1972, 1975, and 1978, transmitted back to Earth data that could be converted into colored pictures. This has also led to Weather, Gps and also networking. Scientist have since made satellites
much more efficient and able to do many more functions than before. Such AS:
Space exploration
etc. Global Impact Satellites have made many things easier for humans.They also do things we cannot.Since sattelites have been invented we have been able to.Navigate much easier.Communicate long distance and also get a heads up when a storm is headed your way.They even explore space.Something that would take years for humans to do and even then we would age. Satellites have advanced this era more than anyone could imagine.
