  Artificial satellites, however, did not become a reality until the midth century. The first artificial satellite was Sputnik, a Russian beach-ball-size space probe that lifted off on Oct. 4,   You might not know it, but there are thousands of human-made satellites orbiting the Earth! They help us do everything from study the climate .

This timeline of artificial satellites and space probes includes unmanned spacecraft including technology demonstrators, observatories, lunar probes, and interplanetary probes. First satellites from each country are included. Not included are most earth science satellites, commercial satellites or manned missions Timeline. A satellite is an object that orbits another object. In space, satellites may be made by man, or they may be moon is a natural satellite that orbits the man-made satellites also orbit the Earth, but some orbit other planets, such as Saturn, Venus or Mars, or the moon.. Satellites are used for many purposes. There are weather satellites, communications satellites.

In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an object that has been intentionally placed into objects are called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as Earth's Moon. On 4 October the Soviet Union launched the world's first artificial satellite, Sputnik then, about 8, satellites from more than 40 countries have been launched.

[/caption] Artificial satellites are human-built objects orbiting the Earth and other planets in the Solar System. This is different from the natural satellites, or moons, that orbit planets, dwarf planets and even asteroids.In the ``Early Bird Astronomy'' series, an introduction to satellites for the K-2 crowd: what satellites are, what they look like, how far above the earth's surface they are, how they communicate with earth, what they do.

An adequate introduction, but curiously short on some details: How big are they? How much do they weigh? How complex are their electronics&#;like a TV set?The world's first artificial satellite, the Sputnik 1, was launched by the Soviet Union on October 4, This surprised the world, and the United States quickly worked to launch their own satellite.
