Artificial satellites are with us all day, every day. When we wake up, go to school, go to work, go on holiday; and even when we spend time at home in the evenings with our families.
In the dark of night, they safeguard us while we sleep. Without them, we would not have navigation in our cars or our mobile phones, nor accurate weather forecasts. Our lives would be very different indeed.
Satellite technologies are not only useful but are also a symbol of international cooperation across the continents.
Our school planetarium show includes a guided ‘What’s in the sky tonight’ presentation and a Solar System walkthrough covering relevant aspects of the NSW syllabus.
