Satellites are all around us, but we hardly ever think about them. They exist in a world beyond the grasp of our mortal senses, transmitting data to and from Earth at the speed of light. This invisible process enables us to watch our favorite TV shows, listen to the radio, perform online banking, and much more. But how is this all possible, and what goes into building and launching a satellite?
These are the questions explored in a fascinating new documentary taking you behind the scenes of hidden data transmission. From a factory hall in the South of France to the vast expanse of outer space, this film tells the story of the construction, transportation, and activation of a satellite.
But the process isn’t all smooth sailing. Building and setting up a satellite is a complex and strenuous task that demands the utmost precision. Every detail of the satellite, from the tiniest screw to its overall weight, must be thoroughly checked and rechecked, because in the weightless vacuum of space, there is no room for error.
Join us on a journey into the non-visible world of television and internet data transfer. Come along as we uncover the secrets of satellite communication and take you behind the scenes of one of the most complex and awe-inspiring feats of engineering imaginable. This is a documentary you won’t want to miss!
