GPS - Users
With GPS (Global Positioning System), not only can you use this system for practical reasons, as you will learn but also, for some fun purposes. This system involves 24 space satellites that send signals down to Earth to receivers. These signals can tell a person where they have been, where they are going, and how to get there. Never at any time in history has such a phenomenon existed. GPS has saved thousands of lives and millions of dollars for businesses.
