  We use satellites in our daily lives from cell phones to communicate with to gps devices that allow us to navigate the Earth better than we have ever been able to before. These wonderful objects spinning around the Earth at thousands of miles per hour will continue to change our lives in ways we never thought possible.


  • Center for Space Microelectronics Technology The Center for Space Microelectronics Technology (CSMT) was founded in 1987 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), an operating division of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and several Department of Defense agencies with space responsibilities established CSMT in order to create a critical-mass program in space microelectronics with world-class facilities, equipment, and staff.
  • Satellite Tracker If you're interested in satellites or astronomy, you've come to the right place! Our aim is to provide you with all the information you need to observe; satellites Mir and the International Space Station the Space Shuttle the dazzlingly bright flares from Iridium satellites as well as a wealth of other spaceflight and astronomical information. Many people don't even realize that satellites can easily be seen with the naked eye. We not only provide the times of visibility, but also detailed star charts showing the satellite's track through the heavens. All our pages, including the graphics, are generated in real-time and customized for your location and time zone.

  • JPL Physical Oceanography DAAC The Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center(DAAC) distributes satellite derived oceans data including sea surface temperatures, ocean winds, altimeter and scatterometer products. ..
  • Space Science Missions A list of Space Science missions which are unmanned. The list includes Those missions Under Study (These missions are in the study phase. They are either: near the start of development; potential development starts selected under an Announcement of Opportunity; or specifically identified as a potential future mission in the OSS Strategic Plan.), In Development (The list is organized in order of scheduled launch/completion; dates are subject to change.), Currently Operating, and Past Missions (These missions ceased operations after 1989.)
