Did you know that non-military groups were given access to the accurate GPS satellites in 2000? GPS is short for “Global Positioning System”. GPS devices work by contacting 3 or more of the GPS. The distance between each of these satellites and the device is a little different. The device uses these differences to determine the device’s location on Earth. GPS is used in navigation, astronomy, cell phone technology, geocaching, self-driving cars or self-navigating robots, and much more!
We hope that you have a precise day at school. Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
Currently there are 32 working GPS satellites in orbit around the Earth. The group of satellites is called a ‘constellation’.
