Quotes on satellites

Quotes on satellites. Satellites are counted among the most helpful human inventions. We all need data and data is never gained until there is an observer. A satellite solves this problem by being the most advanced observer that floats in space and revolves around the earth's orbit to receive signals and transmit data. It's only due to these satellites, we are able to access Google Maps, which helps us use the GPS or global positioning system. All the calls and chats, weather reports, televisions, telephones, etc. runs only due to these satellites. Satellites have revolutionized the age of technology and have easy all our lives with their extremely accurate and marvelous outputs!
