"In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an artificial object which has been intentionally placed into orbit.
Some satellites, notably space stations, have been launched in parts and assembled in orbit. A few hundred satellites are currently operational, whereas thousands of unused satellites and satellite fragments orbit the Earth as space debris. A few space probes have been placed into orbit around other bodies and become artificial satellites to the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Vesta, Eros, and the Sun.
Common types include military and civilian Earth observation satellites, communications satellites, navigation satellites, weather satellites, and research satellites. Space stations and human spacecraft in orbit are also satellites. Satellite orbits ... include low Earth orbit, polar orbit, and geostationary orbit.
Satellites are propelled by rockets to their orbits.
Satellites are usually semi-independent computer-controlled systems. Satellite subsystems attend many tasks, such as power generation, thermal control, telemetry, attitude control and orbit control." [Satellite. Wikipedia]
