About the Edition

Right now, above our heads nearly imperceptible to us but hugely important to how we live are thousands of man-made objects that we have sent into space. Ubiquitous but mysterious, satellites are the technological infrastructure of our globally connected world, helping us do everything from orient ourselves on a map to watch our favorite television shows. Yet we rarely ever think about them. In this book, Doug Millard pays overdue tribute to the stoic existence of the satellite, tracing its simultaneous pathways through the cold silence of space and the noisy turbulence of the past century. How satellites ever came to be is, in itself, a remarkable story. Telling an astonishing history of engineering experimentation and ingenuity, Millard shows how the Cold War space race made the earliest satellites ones like Sputnik, Telstar, and Early Bird household names. He describes how they evolved into cultural signifiers that represented not only our scientific capabilities but our capacity for imagination, our ability to broaden the scope of our vision to the farthest reaches. From there he follows the proliferation of satellites in the second half of the twentieth century, examining their many different forms, how they evolved, all the things they do, what they have enabled, and how they have influenced our popular culture. Ultimately, Millard asks what we can still expect, what sort of space age the satellite has initiated that is yet to be fully realized. Published in association with the Science Museum, London, this beautifully illustrated book will appeal to any fan of space exploration and technology.

Satellite is the kind of book that makes me sad and happy at the same time. Like Tuck, Everlasting --you know that ultimately everyone made the decisions that were right for their situation, but they're decisions that will have negative repercussions and devolve into loneliness at some point if they haven't already/5.

Nick Lake's latest young adult novel, "Satellite", is a stunning achievement. It manages to be original without being overly contrived, and to present a space-based science fiction story that features a teenage protagonist without needing to descend into the realms of fantasy and completely futuristic make-believe/5(26).

The first published mathematical study of the possibility of an artificial satellite was Newton's cannonball, a thought experiment in A Treatise of the System of the World by Isaac Newton (). The first fictional depiction of a satellite being launched into orbit was a short story by Edward Everett Hale, The Brick Moon.

The idea surfaced again in Jules Verne's The Begum's. NASA has a unique vantage point for observing the beauty and wonder of Earth and for making sense of it.

The images in this book tell a story of a billion-year-old planet where there is always something new to see. artificial satellite, object constructed by humans and placed in orbit around the earth or other celestial body (see also space probe).The satellite is lifted from the earth's surface by a rocket and, once placed in orbit, maintains its motion without further rocket propulsion.
