This site is informative.

Technical Remarks:

The world image took a long time to download. The cartoons are good

Interesting site to learn how satellites orbit the earth. Although it does not
give too much information, and it does not apply to information technology at

Technical Remarks:

The java applet was really cool.

This site lacked any important information about information technology. While
it is more of a physics site, I thought it even lacked enough information to
explain to concept of projectile orbits.

I think this is not an information technology site rather it is Physics things.
I spent few minutes with it was kind of fun to watch how Satellite orbits work.

This site was not very educational or interesting, but it did occupy about 3
minutes of my time playing with it. This site is basically a joke.

A rather interesting site that demonstrates the basic physics required to keep
satellites in orbit. However, no mention is made about how this site is related
to Information Technology.

Provides some information on satellite orbits and an applet to test the starting
velocity of an object circling the earth. It has some physics information
regarding this as well.
