Satellites play an important role in weather forecasting. These satellites collect images and then the meteorological people forcast the weather for the coming future. How many satellites? Watch this video for a sample.

Satellite images not only provide weather forecast but also a good medium for surveillance. Countries use their satellites for survelliance purpose also. Satellites are also very useful as they provide radio functioning too.

Barry's Response - Nice photo, Mohit. Satellites and other debris are orbiting our planet now. There are a lot with useful purposes like this one.

Is it getting to be too much? Is the earth's orbit turning into a garbage dump like in Pixar's Wall-E? Maybe.

Is there anything else up there? Old rocket fuel chambers, old satellites, paint chips, even scrap metal from previous collisions are there. Most of the particles are smaller than 10 mm.

The particles cause additional wear and tear on passing vehicles, but rarely cause serious damage. Particles bigger than a few cm should be avoided, though. Potentially causing a real junkyard up there called the Kessler Effect, after the scientist who proposed it. Space entry will be halted if that happens.

Here's something to think about.

My fellow Earthlings, I would like to express my appreciation for the advancements in technology which have led to the development of these remarkable satellites.

Those marvels in the sky have revolutionized weather forecasting, allowing meteorologists to gather vital data and make predictions. It's amazing how they capture images from above and give us information to prepare.

The video showcasing these satellites in action shows the power of innovation and human ingenuity. We shouldn't forget that satellites aren't just for weather forecasting; they're also for surveillance, helping countries monitor their surroundings and protect their citizens.

Plus, these satellites don't stop there! They even connect people from all over the world by providing radio communications across vast distances.

Technology continues to amaze us, and it's our responsibility to use it wisely for the good of society. It's time to embrace these satellite wonders as a way to advance scientific knowledge, promote global cooperation, and make sure our fellow citizens are safe. Let's explore the boundless possibilities in the cosmos together and make the world a better place.

Thanks, and shall we keep striving for progress and prosperity!

satellite surveillance
by: ranjan

This is must for every country to have an satellite surveillance due to the increasing terror attacks. The more surveillance they make the safer they can protect themselves from these unpredictable attacks. Even one can detect the weather conditions which is already being done.

From Barry - To detect potential threats from afar, governments should invest in state-of-the-art surveillance satellites. As a result, they'll be able to respond faster to any unexpected events or disasters. Satellite surveillance is also good for monitoring the environment, detecting natural disasters, and tracking climate change.

Satellite forecasting is a great way to know more about the condition of the earth in and around. And the best thing about it is we can predict the disasters but only to a limit. But some more inventions must have to be discovered.

From Barry - Predictions need to be more precise and accurate, for instance. We need better data collection systems to get more comprehensive and up-to-date info. In addition, we need to work on ways to mitigate and manage pending disasters.
