For those that don't know, satellites are a hoax. The following just scratches the surface of one of the biggest scams we've ever known. For more details, check out the book it's from: The Earth is Flat: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid.
GPS – Ground Global Positioning System
A 2010 blog post on nokia.com titled ‘Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?’ describes how ‘satellites’ are responsible for GPS:
Today we can figure out where we are by using GPS which is one of the most impressive feats of modern technology. The GPS system consists of 24-32 satellites (29 at the moment) in medium earth orbit. A GPS receiver basically measures the time delays (and hence the distance) between itself and any satellite it can see. This distance measurement allows the receiver to know it is on the surface of a sphere, a precise distance from any one satellite. By combining the data from three or more satellites, a precise location point can be determined, the place where all these surfaces intersect. Today GPS and its various modifications can determine location on the Earth to a precision of a few centimeters.
Interestingly, the same technology has been available on earth for many years, at a fraction of the cost of sending satellites to ‘space’.
A 2009 article on windowscentral.com titled ‘Google Maps Now Does Location by Tower Triangulation’ describes the technological feat:
The newest version of Google Maps will now take a shot at guessing your current location by looking at the relative signal strength of the cell towers around you. You can watch a cutesy YouTube Video to get an idea of how it works. No GPS necessary, baby!
One would assume that boats and airplanes use satellite communications to travel overseas, but that’s not the case.
Hundreds, or even thousands, of boats are out in the oceans at any given time, yet boat tracking websites – such as vesselfinder.com – are only able to track boats which are close to land. Boat tracking websites show the earth as a flat plane, and not a globe.
The technology which allows objects to be tracked has been around since at-least the 1940s.
Cell phone towers permeate the land. According to statisticbrain.com, there are approximately 215,000 cell phone towers in the United States alone, up from 900 in 1985.
These multi-purpose ‘antennas’, which have been around since the early 1900s, serve a variety of purposes (as described by Wikipedia):
Antennas are essential components of all equipment that uses radio. They are used in systems such as radio broadcasting, broadcast television, two-way radio, communications receivers, radar, cell phones, and satellite communications, as well as other devices such as garage door openers, wireless microphones, Bluetooth-enabled devices, wireless computer networks, baby monitors, and RFID tags on merchandise.
The towers do everything that satellites purportedly do, at a fraction of the cost.
A 2014 article on gpsworld.com titled ‘eDLoran: The Next-Gen Loran’ describes how the Loran system, which utilizes ground-based towers, offers the same ‘GPS’ capabilities as ‘satellites’:
A new enhanced differential Loran system demonstrates 5-meter accuracy not achievable by the current DLoran system, and requires less expensive reference stations. A prototype tested in Rotterdam’s Europort area uses standard mobile telecom networks and the Internet to reduce correction data latency — a key source of error — by one to two orders of magnitude.
‘GPS’ and ‘satellite’ technology has coincidentally improved at the same rate as their ground-based alternative.
Under the Sea
The first undersea data cable was laid in the 1850s. Since then, the technology has improved significantly and accounts for nearly all international data transmission.
Resting thousands of feet under the sea, these cables – also known as submarine cables – literally connect the world.
(Wikipedia Commons description: U.S. Navy Builder 2nd Class Christopher Farmer, assigned to Dive Detachment Bravo, Underwater Construction Team 2, installs steel armor around a seafloor cable during Maintenance under 100 feet of water off the coast of the Pacific Missile Range Facility Barking Sands, Hawaii, Aug. 14, 2013. The project was part of a three-stop deployment to maintain underwater cables.)
According to submarinecablemap.com, as of March 2017, there were over 360 of these undersea cables.
The cables enable the ‘interconnectedness’ of the ‘world wide web’ and all other data streams in a most efficient and high-powered manner.
We logically assume that satellites play a role in field of international data transmission, but that is another lie.
An opsmag.com article titled ‘Retirement at Age 25? Extending Submarine Cable’s Lifespan‘ describes the importance of these underground cables, demonstrating that satellite communications would pale in comparison to hard-wired earth-based transmissions:
The centrality of our submarine cable system to global economics and communications cannot be understated.
There is still a common public misunderstanding that satellites are the primary method of international communications, however submarine fiber optic cables now carry almost 100% of the world’s international Internet, voice and data communication.
A mentalfloss.com article titled ‘10 Facts About the Internet's Undersea Cables’ further exposes the myth that satellites, if they were real, would not be able to compete with earth-based cables:
Submarine communications cables are faster and cheaper than satellites.
There are well over a thousand satellites in orbit, we’re landing probes on comets, and we’re planning missions to Mars. We’re living in the future! It just seems self-evident that space would be a better way to virtually “wire” the Internet than our current method of running really long cables-slash-shark-buffets along the ocean floor.
Surely satellites would be better than a technology invented before the invention of the telephone—right? As it turns out, no. (Or at least, not yet.) Though fiber optic cables and communications satellites were both developed in the 1960s, satellites have a two-fold problem: latency and bit loss. Sending and receiving signals to and from space takes time. Meanwhile, researchers have developed optical fibers that can transmit information at 99.7% the speed of light. For an idea of what the Internet would be like without undersea cables, visit Antarctica, the only continent without a physical connection to the net.
The continent relies on satellites, and bandwidth is at a premium, which is no small problem when one considers the important, data-intensive climate research underway. Today, Antarctic research stations produce more data than they can transmit through space.
It's all a scam, folks. How long are we gonna go along with it???
