About 35 minutes before it passes his midnight position on Earth. , the satellite will come out of eclipse. Loss of power at this time of the late evening is unacceptable to television companies and to telecommunications authorities. Both would expect full power capability to continue, and thus the satellite would have to carry batteries that supplied the same power as that coming from the entire solar arrays. m. m. London time 40 London time referenced to satellite Communications Satellites ^ Satellite and London time 41 Turning a crate into a satellite Battery power provision can be reduced by moving the satellite in relation to the users.

Low-orbit satellites can, of course, be repaired, and have been so by astronauts working out of the Space Shuttle; but that is at an altitude of 200 miles, not where we are at 22 000. Let us take these requirements, one by one, and see what has to go into the crate to handle them. 1°. This ensures that the users will never need to re-align their antennas on the ground. At a range of 22 000 miles, this accuracy means that, to the user, the satellite will always be within a square of 40-mile sides (Figure 21).

At 93 million miles distance, its variation in gravitational attraction across the 50 000 mile diameter of a geosynchronous orbit is minimal. However, the Sun does exert a pressure on everything that falls within its rays. This 'solar wind', resulting from the heat and light energy radiated by the Sun, is both a problem and a help to the satellite designer. 5 kg per square kilometre) - but it is enough to push a satellite away, very slowly, to eternity. And yet, small as it is, this pressure can be used to control a satellite's attitude in orbit.
