25 Super Satellite Innovations

From Beer Cooler Satellites to Odd Google Earth Sightings

— April 9, 2010 — Tech
Space is now the bi*** of humanity, thanks in part to these super satellite innovations. Satellites allow us to see untouched parts of the solar system, take badass pictures, and even watch television. Take that space!

These super satellite innovations are the closest you and I will ever get to space. The satellites in this cluster have actually touched outer space. I can only imagine such a good touch.

Implications - This list contains everything from a satellite to monitor your footwear to comedic satellite photos taken from Google Streetview. As most other technological marvels have, the satellite has crossed over from a breakthrough in machinery to an important part of pop culture.
