        It was the year 0000. The next thing you know, it’s 2016. But, what in the world happened in 1957? You’ll have to read my report to find out. First, you will learn about it’s history. Secondly, you will read about what it is .Then, I will teach you about how it works.          

Finally, I will blow your mind with some super cool facts but you have to read the rest to find out about super cool stuff.

History of IT

        This paragraph is about The history of GPS. According to Unavco, Inspiration coming from the launch of the the 1st satellite ever in the year 1957, the Global Positioning System (GPS) - is a network of satellites that orbit the Earth and beam down signals to anyone on Earth with a GPS (global positioning system) receiver. These signals carry a time code and geographical data point that allows the user to find the finest degree their in relation, speed and time anywhere on the planet.

 Gps Help YOu to get where you want to…...UNless your car is like my family's car and is from 2003 and the Gps sucks and when you type something in he takes you the opposite way.

  From one place to another was the 1st satellite system launched by the USA and tested by the US Navy in the year 1960. Just 5 satellites orbiting the Earth allowed ships 2 fix their position on the seas once  every hour (60 minutes). In the year of 196 the Transit was received by the Timation satellite, which demonstrated that highly accurate atomic clocks that could be operated in space. GPS developed quickly for Military purposes thereafter with a total of 11 "Blocked" satellites being launched between  the year 1978 and the year 1985.

However, it wasn’t until the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) shot down a Korean passenger jet - flight 007 - in 1983 that the Reagan Administration in the US had the incentive to open up about  GPS for civilian applications so that aircraft, shipping, and transport the world over could fix their positions and avoid straying into restricted foreign territory.

Upgrading the GPS was delayed by NASA Space Shuttle SS Challenger disaster in the year  of 1986, and it was not until the year of 1989 that the first Block 2 satellites were launched. By the summer of 1993, the US launched their 24th Navstar Satellite into orbit. Which completed the modern GPS Constellation of Satellites - a network of 24 - familiar now as the Global Positioning System, or GPS. 21 of the constellation of satellites were active at any 1 time , the other 3 satellites were spares; in the year of  1995 it declared fully operational. Today's GPS network has around 30 active satellites in the GPS Constellation.

What IT is

        This paragraph is about The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of twenty-four  satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense.(Global Positioning System) was originally intended for military applications,  in the  year 1980s, the Government made the system to be  available for civilian use.
