Title: The R.A.E. table of earth satellites - Authors: King-Hele, D. G. Publication: The R.A.E. table of earth satellites - In all, the European Space Agency (ESA) has developed 60 spacecrafts over the last few decades. Some of these, such as the ERS satellites and Envisat, are dedicated to monitoring the Earthand providing vital data on the health status of our planet. Other spacecraft have helped to improve the accuracy of weather forecasting. Galileo, the joint ESA/EU satellite navigation p- gramme, .

Table of Earth Satellites The author gratefully acknowledges the assistance of the following people for helping to locate original NASA documents, photographs, and other information. Bunda L. Dean, formerly Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center Joan Ferry and Lois Morris, Fondren Library, Rice University, and. The R.A.E. Table of Earth Satellites was published by the Royal Aerospace Establishment, Farnborough in , and included all launches to the end of 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. The first artificial satellite, Sputnik I, was launched on Oct. 4, , by the USSR; a test payload of a radio.
Earth every 96 minutes and transmit-ted radio signals that could be received on Earth. This success was followed by Sputnik 2 a month later, in November , and by the first U.S. satellites, Ex-plorer 1 in January and Vanguard 1 in March Vanguard 1 remains the oldest satellite still orbiting the Earth . The final chapters are concerned with modeling observations used to track satellites, using the observations to estimate the true motion of the satellite, and estimating geodetic information from the motion of the satellite. Although first published in , this book remains one of the best volumes available on satellite theory and by: An Earth observation satellite or Earth remote sensing satellite is a satellite used or designed for Earth observation from orbit, similar to spy satellites but intended for non-military uses such as environmental monitoring, meteorology, map making and others. The first occurrence of satellite remote sensing can be dated to the launch of the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, by the. Scientific research from NASA/ESA/JAXA. The invention of climate research through the use of satellite remote telemetry began in the s through development of space probes to study other planets. During the U.S. economic decline in , with much of NASA's money going toward the Shuttle program, the Reagan Administration proposed to reduce spending on planetary exploration.
