What is Satelite: Definition and 30 Discussions

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.

    Global Positioning System / Clocks in Space

    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...

    Analogy between satelite orbit and mass oscillating through earth

    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)

    Relationship between centripetal force and gravitational force of satelite
