Why Lesson Planet?
In this satellite technology learning exercise, students read about Low Earth Orbit satellites and the frictional drag from the Earth's atmosphere that causes them to fall back towards the Earth. Students use given data of the years the satellites re-entered the Earth's atmosphere and the number of sunspots that occurred during that year to answer 6 questions about the relationship between sunspot data and satellites re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.
