Eyes in the Sky
Satellite Spies Are Watching You!Book - 2008
There are thousands of satellites orbiting Earth. Some are as small as melons. Others are as big as buses. Satellites relay TV, radio, and phone signals. They help forecast the weather. They monitor the oceans and atmosphere. And they allow people to spy from above. But most of all, satellites give us a global view of the planet. Want to know more? Peer down on this book and find out about: how a tiny satellite that went "beep, beep, beep" changed the world; what satellites can see-and what they can't; how photos from spy satellites started a war; and whether working with satellites is the right career for you.
