The growth of technology is to be taken from its beginning stages. The devotion of satellite is always worthy! Every space shuttle with their effectiveness and capacities has given the best results for studying the space areas outside of the earth in many unimaginable ways. Let us hence look at the most significant ten satellites of the history.
1. HUBBLE SATELLITE TECHNOLOGY
Hubble of the year 1990 is one of the significant satellite projects ever. It has a 2.4-m diameter space telescope built into it. This satellite is the collaboration between ESA and the NASA. It was present for installing into the Space Shuttle Discovery into circular orbits which are 575 km above the ground level. Hubble hence gave the beauty of space through its photographs photos.
The Mangalyan is the most efficient satellite in the history of Indian space technology. This satellite was launched on November 5th from 2013 to study about Mars. The mission became a great hit after the expenses of about Rs.450C. The dry mass present in the space shuttle was 500 Kilos and even having 850 Kilos of Propellant and the necessary Oxidizer to fuel the engine.
SES-1 was given in the year 2010 by the North American Space Craft Mission. Proton Breeze is the name of the engine used for SES-1. The design is made in such a way that it has a lifespan of about 15 years in space.
The INSAT-3D was launched by the ISRO in the year 2013 on July 26th respectively. Its primary aim is to improve the meteorological information and data, by checking cues like temperature, humidity, and pressure. Even few telecommunication systems and broadcasting societies are beneficial for its use.
5. GALAXY 14
The launching year of Galaxy 14 was 2005. It is a type of geostationary satellite. This GALAXY 14 satellite is updating to develop the communications of digital TV signals few like the ESPN, CNN, and A&E channels.
The Jugnu satellite was developed by the most renowned place of IIT-Kanpur with the guidance of ISRO on October 12 in the year 2011. It is useful for calculating the GPS and for developing the inertial measurement systems about space.
Terra given in the year 1999 is the satellite, undertaking five remote sensors for monitoring the earth’s changes to its climate system. The five sensors are CERES-Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System, ASTER-Advanced Space-Borne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer, MISR-Multi-angle Imaging Spectro Radiometer, MODIS-Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectro Radiometer, and MOPITT-Measurements for Pollution in Troposphere respectively.
The RISAT-1 is one of the significant types of radar, the satellite sent on 26th April 2012, for effectively monitoring the weather changes of the earth. This satellite due to its effectiveness and other benefits it is most commonly called “India’s spy satellite.”
The Indo and Russian ideas combining satellite were developed by the doctoral students in the year 2011 on April 20th. The upper surface of the earth is the actual focus of study from the Youthsat satellite. This satellite is to be the notable one for considering it as India’s first ever Aeronomy satellite.
A weather forecasting satellite that was given by the NOAA in the year 2002 is the NOAA-17. The shuttle is said to be 824 km above the earth alongside orbiting for about every 101 minutes. With a capacity of 833W and with the dry mass of 1473 kg, the satellite is noted for retiring in the year 2013.
