Greasy Goopy GPS



        Do you know what an atomic clock is? If you want to find out read this report.First, I will tell you how long the project of the GPS took. Do you know what the GPS stands for read my report. If you want to know how many satellites are in outer space read my report . What is the best GPS to but, I don’t know read my report. You better read my report.

History of IT

        This paragraph is about when it was invented. I have to thank wikipedia for this information. The GPS project started in 1973 to overcome other navigation systems. A number of classified engineering design studies of the GPS happened in the 1960s. The U.S. DoD or the Department of Defense developed the the system. It became fully operational in 1995. That is about 35 years!


This paragraph is about who invented it. I will give credit to wikipedia for this awesome info. The gps was invented by three people. They are Roger L. Easton, Ivan A. Getting, and Bradford Parkinson. They are credited for inventing it.

        This paragraph is about why it was invented. I need to thank Tracker School Bus for this information. Before the GPS came into existence, navigation systems were being used in the Navy. The high speed air force needed a better navigation system and that led to them to think of navigation using satellites.

This paragraph is about when did it go to the public. I will give credit to Tracker School Bus for this info that I am about to tell you. In 1983, a Korean Airlines flight was shot down by Soviet Union since the flight entered to the Soviet airspace. So President Ronald Reagan let the GPS go to the public.

What IT is

        This paragraph is about how has it improved over time. I have to give credit to wikipedia.org The Navy TRANSIT system was to slow for the high speeds of the Air Force operation. They came up with Time Navigation. Those satellites first launched in 1967. The third one launched in in 1974 carrying the first atomic clock into orbit. An atomic clock is one of the most accurate clocks in the world.

        This paragraph is about what it does.

        This paragraph is about what it stands for.Tracker School Bus gave me this awesome information. The idea of Global Positioning System or GPS came from LORAN and Decca Navigation System. Those were used during WWII. They helped in the navigation of ships and plane at a long range.

How IT Works

        This paragraph is about how it works. The gps is a space-based navigation system.

        This paragraph is about how many satellites are used. The credit will go to Tracker School Bus. There are at least 24 active satellites orbiting the earth. But there are more than 30 or more in space at all times. The first set of 24 satellites was sent up in 1989.

Super Cool Facts That Will Blow Your Mind

This paragraph is about something cool about it. Credit for this info will go to Christen Costa. There is a screen that goes right over your rear view that you can browse the internet on. It has a built in gps. The screen just slips over your existing rear view mirror.

        This paragraph is about what the best one to get is. I got this information from Eric Adams. One of the best is the Garmin’s $200 nüvi 2539LMT. It is one of the best ones for your cars.
