WEEK NINE

SATELLITE

MEAINING OF STATELLITE

Satellite is a body that orbits or moves round a planet e.g. the moon is a satellite of the earth

Thus, the satellites or moons of the planet in our solar system are shown below

PLANET NO OF SATELLITE

Mercury None

Venus None

Earth 1

Mass 2

Jupiter 12

Saturn 9

Uranus 5

Neptune 2

 

NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL SATELLITES

The moons that orbit the planets in solar system are natural satellite while artificial satellite are man made bodies, which were launched by various countries, and now orbiting the earth e.g.

COUNTRY YEAR OF FIRST LAUNCH FIRST SATELLITE

USSR 1957 Sputnik 1

USA 1958 Explorer 1

Australia 1964 Blue streak

France 1965 Asterix

Japan 1970 Osumi

China 1970 Dong fang hang 1

United kingdom 1971 Prospero X-3

India 1979 Rohini 1

Israel 1988 Ofeg 1

Nigeria 2003 SAT 1

EVALUATION

1. Give the meaning of satellite and name two planets with their number of satellites

2. State four examples of countries, year of first launch and the name of satellites launched by them.

TYPES OF SATELLITE AND THEIR USES

1. ASTRONOMICAL SATELLITES: They are used for observation of distance plants, galaxies and other outer space objects.

2. BIO SATELLITE:These are used to carry living organism especially for scientific experimentation.

3. OBSERVATION SATELLITE: They are used for geographical studies, photographing of areas, map marking.

  1. WEATHER SATELLITES: These are used to monitor the weather conditions in the atmosphere and supply the information to ground stations.

5. COMMUNICATION SATELLITE:They are designed purposely to send information quickly from one place to another.

6. RECONNAISSANCE SATELLITES: They are used for military or intelligence purposes, such as observing enemy location or troop movements.

7. SPACE STATION SATELLITES: They are designed for human being to live on in outer space. They are only designed for periods of weeks, mouths or years.

8. NAVIGATIONAL SATELLITES: These used radio time signals, it enables mobile receivers on the ground to determine their exact location.

EVALUATION

1. What is reconnaissance satellite?

2. Give four examples of satellite and their uses.
