Six ways satellites make the world a better place - Deepstash
Satellites and Financial Transactions

Contactless payments would never have been possible if we didn't have satellites. Literally, all of our financial transactions rely on satellites' locations and timing services for security purposes as well.

If the satellite's timing isn't in sync with the others, it is possible for money to be lost in the transaction.

Overhead, we have about 3000 satellites that assist us in monitoring natural disasters such as forest fires and tropical storms.

The data that we've gathered from these satellites allow us to study the behavior and predict its patterns to further support our response teams and relief efforts.

Many countries have already approved of sharing satellite data regarding this matter, and the coordinated global use of satellites amounts to almost 700 possibilities.

There is no country or entity that is able to claim a region of space, not even a superpower country.

Satellites provide data to activists, journalists, and even investigators in order to pursue saving as many lives as possible.

Due to the help of satellites, communities are able to speak up for what they believe in and are then able to tackle issues such as illegal deforestation, government fabrications, and even the prosecution of war criminals.

A fun feature of satellites includes high-resolution imagery.

Through this technique, we are able to identify ships that do not submit signals of their locations by differentiating the locations of the ones that do, thus preventing ourselves from piracy.

High-resolution imagery is also useful for spotting whether a colony of animals is slowly dying or not. Scientists are able to count and identify the animals through high-resolution imagery. Although it is still far from being able to track an individual animal.

It is extremely useful for conservationists because it can help them protect endangered animal species from either being poached or encroached on by people.

The existence of extra-terrestrials is dependent on what we believe in. Satellites are able to see anything even outside our solar system.
