…and some people think the world is flat. seriously, they do. idiots.

Satellites? You are fool.

THE MILITARY HAD NO CONTROL OVER GPS , YOUR A FUCKING ASSHOLE , PUBLIC ACCESS GPS HAS BEEN AROUND FRO YEARS AND WHERE NOT MILITARY SPEC gps SATELLITES. OYUR AS BAD THE PEDOPHILE CLUB, MY GPS GETS 8 MINIMUM SATS AT ANY TIME . YOU CLAIMS ARE FALSE.

stupid…..satellites are not real…..

Thats funny,, Russia has been offering superior and unscrambled GLONASS for free without a 2 million dollar a day price tag, US taxpayer is being ripped of by its corrupt, putrid and ever increasingly Jewish regime , american scumbag haha

how can a fragile looking satelite survive traveling around the planet at the speed of light ?

We have Sir Arthur C Clarke a British science fiction writer who In 1945 proposed a satellite communication system that would allow communications to span the world, we must also not forget the Germen aerospace engineer and space architect who designed the rockets that got the satellites in orbit, all in all it would seem as usual all the US supplied was the money.

I couldn't get to the part "Why The US Military Made GPS Free-To-Use" for all the mindless babble this guy go's on and on and on and on and on and on and on about.It must make him feel smart to babble about things that should have nothing to do with this video.stfu and die already!

So you wonder why your government made free something that let's them know where everyone is at all times? You really need to read…. anything.

No offense to the narrator or channel but this is a total load of garbage. Have any of you "Real Engineers" ever parsed your phone's raw "GPS" data? I didn't think so. Try it once and come back with a new video please. While you're at it, might I suggest you google the LORAN system? Then maybe you should ask yourself why the GLOBAL positioning system doesn't work in the southern hemisphere while over the oceans? IJS…

The THERMOSPHERE is to hot for anything to be in it without combusting…so there's NO satellites in orbit! There are however, high-altitude balloons that do work similar to what they claim satellites do!! Nice cartoon graphics though!

Pals funeral Does anyone identify bigger this variant?"

Brilliant. Keep up the great work. The great research. And I didn't feel like your advertising was in my face or annoying. (SPAM). Why because you made me interested right till the end. Thank you. You deserve you views.

And yet planes over oceans can't be tracked in real time….something is not right!

Thanks US workers for working hard and paying to fiance a life changing technology <3. IRS taxation isnt legal for most workers who did not make an "income" as a business. But thanks to you who donate anyways.

Imagine how the pilot felt to have to shoot down a passenger plane :/

It's not true that drones need it. For example… manually controlled drones don't need GPS at all. It's only when they need to be fully autonomous. (I.e. fly from point A to point B)

Great video mate… loved it.. well done.

When even the commercial is interesting! Good job!

Albert Crawler

Haha.. BS…. GPS is an ordinary tree antenna system, has nothing to do with those fake satellites.

it's free so govt can track us.

we could also run out of oil and be left without transportation not only gps ….

nah man the Earth is flat

Doug Walters

The only reason they de scrambled it was Russia was going to offer theirs

Yup. All you foreigners are welcome.

Um… because our tax dollars fund the military?

Im scared soo much good and valuable info im going to hide in my safe space for today

Lies. Everyone knows the Earth is fat.

GPS is all land based, satellites dont exists, they claim Thermosphere get up to 2000Celcius, dark nonreflective solar panels will melt.
and they claim temperatures in space can go low as -270C, Nitrogen becomes liquid at -195C, which materials can survive these temperatures, and perfectly stay in orbit for years, not effected by moon, sun, gravity

Utter drivel. The Google map of my house is over 10 years old lol. and that was taken by a low flying plane ! GPS is ground based !

Why free to use? Because the idiot Russians blow everything out of the skies because they apparently do not know the word "intercept of civilian airliners".

Why US Military Made GPS Free? and what about the Internet, and DEET, the list never ends. Ingenuity trumps formal education!

Tony Poupa

The US Military also bought the 77 Iridium satellites, so there are WAY more than just 24, add to that weather sats, USGS and NOAA sats and many many more. Adds up to hundreds

The problem with this video is that the GPS satellites use Newtonian mechanics not Relativity equations. It also failed to mention that atmosphere slows down electromagnetic velocity; just as light goes slower through glass or water. As well, two atomic clocks side by side over a short duration will desynchronize. There are many factors that influence the relative position and trajectory of GPS satellites, requiring constant monitoring and adjustments to maintain the system accuracy. Hypothetical time dilation has nothing to do with GPS satellite positions; in other words, Special and General Relativity have nothing to do with GPS satellites on… Read more »
