Satellites Could Be Deorbited Using New Gossamer Sail
2013-12-22 03:34:52

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from the University of Surrey have developed a new method to bring aging satellites back to Earth so they no longer pose a threat to spacecraft or other probes by continuing to orbit in a nonworking state. The device is an ultra-lightweight “gossamer sail” that could be packed into satellites which could be deployed near the end of their life cycles, the European Space Agency (ESA) – which has funded the project...

Sounds Of Space
2013-12-20 16:31:24

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A scientist from the University of Leicester is helping to reveal the sounds of space by using satellite data. Some areas of space are so quiet you can hear your heart beat, but there are other areas that have the capacity to be as noisy as places on Earth. A multimedia composer at the University’s Space Center decided to generate a few of the surprising Earth-like sounds one could find in space. Andrew Williams used data collected from...

Satellite -- A satellite is an object that orbits another object. With sufficient tangential velocity, the object does not collide with the primary object it orbits, but maintains a distance from that object as the rate at which it falls towards that object is similar to the rate that it travels away, thus the object orbits the primary object and becomes a satellite. In other words: gravitational force serves as the centripetal force needed to make the object circle the primary...
