How does GPS Satellites work?

How does GPS work?


briefly
How GPS Satellites works - GPS full form Global positioning System - technology today - GPS satellite travel speed at 14,000
The global positioning system (GPS) is made up of many satellites that are constantly transmitting to Earth very precise time signals produced with the aid of atomic clocks. Because the satellites are positioned at various distances from the receiver, it is possible to calculate the position of the receiver from the satellites' orbits and the time delays experienced in receiving the signals-provided the signals are received from at least four satellites. There is a problem, however. The GPS satellites travel through space at 14,000km/h. Because of their speed, the clocks on board the satellites-as predicted by Einstein's theory or relativity-run slower than clocks on Earth. There is also a second relativistic effect caused by the Earth's gravitational field being a little weaker in orbit than it is at ground level, and this causes the clocks on board the satellites to run a little faster than those on Earth. Unfortunately, these two effects do not cancel each other out, and the navigation system has to make precise allowances for the temporal distortions caused by gravity and motion. Since the divergence amounts to several kilometers a day, these corrections are essential if GPS is to get us to where we want to go.

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    some new details surrounding the case and thought I would update you on what has
    happened as a result of this sad situation. The post-war era saw the couple relocating their National Book Store to 'Avenida', which
    worked out well because business started picking up in no time at all.
    But if when you finally get to check his phone (when he's in the shower is your
    best bet) if the call history and all of the texts are always erased, then you have reason to be nervous.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
    months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
