Some Of The Most Significant Satellites Currently Orbiting The Earth
You’ve probably utilized a satellite at one point or another — even today — without realizing it. Did you check the weather? You used a satellite. Did you look something up on Google Maps? You used a satellite. Watched the big game on ESPN? Bingo, you used a satellite.
When it comes down to it, many things simply wouldn’t be possible without the help of these friendly pieces of metal floating around in space. We can guarantee you that using a sat phone from our online satellite phone store certainly wouldn’t work without...you know, a satellite.
Satellites, Satellites Everywhere!

Taking Your Satellite Phone To Some Of The Most Remote Places On Earth
The earth’s surface area measures approximately 196.9 million square miles. Roughly 30 percent of Earth’s total surface area consists of land, and 10 percent of that landmass is inhabited by people. Surprisingly, a good 80 percent of the Earth’s total landmass is connected with roads, highways, and farmland.
Considering that the total planimetric (or flat) land area is a good 57.5+ million square miles, the fact that humans have established such extensive roads is remarkably impressive.
That only leaves about 10 percent of the Earth’s total landmass as true, uninhabited wilderness. Now that we’re done throwing numbers at you, it’s time to take a closer look at some of the most uninhabited, inhospitable, and remote places on the planet.
