Types of Satellites and Spacecrafts with their detailed Listings

Share on:

A satellite is an object in space that itinerate in a circular way and searches all the activities of a planet (provide information about clouds, oceans, land, ice, measure gases in the atmosphere, such as ozone and carbon dioxide, and the amount of energy that planet absorbs and emits. And satellites monitor wildfires, volcanoes, and their smoke.) and it is also responsible for the geometrical state of the planet.

There are two kinds of satellites:

  1. Natural (such as the moon orbiting the Earth)
  2. Artificial (such as the International Space Station over the Earth)

Natural Satellite:

A natural satellite is a satellite created by nature, that is, some accidents in space. As we talk about the moon, which is a satellite of the earth. Its construction is also due to some internal accidents. Like earth have a natural satellite of your own. Similarly, all planets also have their own satellite which is responsible for their geographical conditions.

There are some list of natural satellites with its planet

Artificial satellite:

An artificial satellite is a satellite that is created by humans, i.e. scientists, and they are also maintained by scientists. They are created by some organizations like India’s space organization is I.S.R.O.(Indian Space Research Organization), America’s organization is N.A.S.A.(The National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and many space organization have on earth.

There is some artificial satellite who is invited on earth:
