Episode of Series “Space Science”.
How is a satellite placed in a desired orbit? The program explores this problem by illustrating how a satellite’s shape, path and period may be modified. Practical application of this procedure - the establishing of weather and communications satellites - is demonstrated as students are given a satellite’s eye view of the various paths over the earth’s surface.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
