Do Earth’s 600 Satellites Affect Tides through Gravitational Pull Like the Moon?

The Moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth’s tides is well known. However, with the increasing number of man-made satellites orbiting the Earth in recent years, the question arises: do these satellites also affect the tides? While the gravitational pull of each individual satellite is relatively weak, the combined gravitational pull of all the satellites orbiting

Exploring the Expansion of Earth’s Atmosphere in the Face of Gravity

What is gravity and how does it affect the atmosphere? Gravity is a force of attraction between two objects that is proportional to the mass of each object. It is the force that holds the Earth and all of its components, including the atmosphere, in place. The atmosphere is made up of a number of
