What is a satellite

       This paragraph is about what satellites are.  According to BNSC (British National Space Center),”A satellite is any object that orbits another object.  The Earth’s moon is a satellite and the Earth itself is a satellite of the sun.”













How heavy is a satellite

This paragraph tells how heavy satellites are. Each of these 3,000- to 4,000-pound solar-powered satellites circles the globe at about 12,000 miles (19,300 km), making two complete rotations every day. The orbits are arranged so that at any time, anywhere on Earth, there are at least four satellites "visible" in the sky.  GPS satellites are about 3,500 pounds.
