Ciudad Satélite (lit. transl. Satellite City), commonly known as Satélite, is a Greater Mexico City upper middle class suburban area located in Naucalpan, State of Mexico. Officially, the name corresponds exclusively to the homonym neighborhood, Ciudad Satélite, founded circa 1957. With time, the area surrounding it, including upper-class neighborhoods like Lomas Verdes, Echegaray, Paseos del Bosque or Colonial Satélite, alongside adjacent municipalities Atizapán de Zaragoza and Tlalnepantla de Baz, have become collectively known as "Satélite", due to its prominence as both an economically and socially dynamic area.Initially conceived as "a city outside the city", in response to the increasing population of Mexico City's upper classes, it was one of Mexico's most prominent architectural ventures of the 20th century. Designed and built by Mexican architects Mario Pani and José Luis Cuevas Pietrasanta on grounds of then president Miguel Alemán's family ranch, "Los Pirules", which was purchased from the Fuentes-Centurion family on the hacienda "Los Chabacanos," it quickly rose to prominence among city dwellers wishing to acquire property outside the city proper.
Summary:: Looking for a title and an idea to do a research project on the topic of satellite communications
Hello fellow FP,
I am in desperate need for an idea to do a project, seminar, call it what you like, on the topic of satellite communications for a course. We covered the basics of...
I'm a bit lost at how to exactly start this exercise... As far as I understand we need to first determine ##d\tau_E## and ##d\tau_S##.
First question: Since we can neglect the Earth's movement, can I also neglect the movement of the satellite with respect to the far away observer? If so, I...
The Hubble deep field image was constructed by collecting photons from a specific region of space over a continuous duration of time; in this case ten days. As the number of collected photons increase, higher the resolution of the image.
If this duration increases, how much more resolution do...
Something that crossed my mind recently; I know that satellites have to adjust their clock due to their relativistic time variations in relation to us. I was wondering do they adjust their times in accordance to general relativity or special relativity or both? Or is their speed so insignificant...
Homework Statement
Find the period of a low Earth orbiting satellite using Kepler Laws
earth radius = 6.38E6 meters
T^2/R^3 for Earth = 2.97E-19 (sec^2/m^3)
Homework Equations
2.97E-19 = T^2/(6.38E6)^3
T^2 = (2.97E-19)(6.38^6)^3 = 77.1
T = 8.72 sec
The Attempt at a Solution
This is not...
The period of a satellite revolving around the Earth earth at surface height is equal to the period of any mass thrown through a hole of the earth(which gains a simple harmonic motion)...
It seemed really interesting to me...
Why both of these periods are same?
T=2 π √(R/g)
Homework Statement
On high 150km above the surface of Mars, there is satelite That is ciculating arround Mars. What's his bypass time? Radius of Mars is 3400km.
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
I found equation like this :
t= (2*r(R+h)^(3/2))/(sqrt(g0*R^2))
R=r+h
r=3400km
h=150km...
In order for a satelite to achieve an orbit around the Earth the centripetal force of it needs to be exactly the same as the force of gravitation which is acting upon the satelite. Why is this so?
Homework Statement
Assume that a satellite can be modeled as a thermally leading sphere with radius 0.5m and its energy consumption is 200W, and its surface can be described with α=0.3 and ε=0.9.
Determine the equilibrium temperature of satellite in these cases:
a) Satellite is between Earth...
Homework Statement
A 320kg satellite experiences a gravitational force 800N. What is the radius of the satellite's orbit?
Homework Equations
G m1m2 / d^2
The Attempt at a Solution
I started with
800N = (G(320kg)(5.98(10^24)kg) / d^2
After some algebra and rounding I ended up...
Hello here is small question:
Lets say we have 2 clocks on spacecraft .
Both are synchronized with Earth clock before start.
Lets synchronize one of them with Earth clock again when they arrive to an orbit.
Do relativity predict some faze diference for these two clocks now?
If so how...

Answer key is marked
Homework Equations
F=gMm/r^2 =ma=mv^2/R
The Attempt at a Solution
So does gMm/r^2 also measure centripetal acceleration?
So now, do big most bang beleivers and non beleivers think the COBE satelite really proves one way or another the validity of the big bang theory as opposed to the theory that the universe has always existed and that time is a man made concept? Essentially, Is the argument swayed one way or...

What is the orbiting speed (m/s) of a satelite orbiting Earth in a circular path 1000 km above Earth's surface? (Use 4 sig figs)
Homework Equations

The figure shows two planets of mass m orbiting a star of mass M. The planets are in the same orbit, with radius r, but are always at opposite ends of a diameter.
This is the equation eq. I used:
mv^2/r=GMm/r^2+Gmm/(2r)^2
This is what I came up with but it is not the right answer. Where...
I am completely lost. I am taking a course in Space Systems Engineering for Career Advancment. I have been asked to predict (without a program/software) when I will be able to see a satelite from a given lat, long from earth. I know the altitude is 350KM and I also know the inclination...
If this happens, will this be easily visible?
Also, does anyone know of a website or something that will announce when it is going to happen? I would love to be able to be outside watching if it is going to be visible. Well, assuming my skies will be clear enough to see anything at all...

i just went over this in physics, but if you take a coil, and pass a magnet near it (without touching), you create an emf while you come near it and when you leave. i believe its the Faraday effect/observation/whatever?
but with that in mind, i had this idea: if you take some really big...
