Biography

Stax, originally Satellite, was one of the biggest and most important labels in R&B and Soul music history. They were responsible for some of the biggest crossover hits of the genre, and had a distinctive sound, thanks to their top-notch session bands, The Mar-Keys and, later, Booker T & The MGs (both of which had solo successes as well). They launched many acts to stardom, including Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding, not to mention Issac Hayes, and many Stax artists were featured in Wattstax, a documentary/concert film. Stax had a R&B subsidiary, Volt, although the two labels are so intertwined, you never hear of "Volt" without "Stax" nearby.

Dr Who

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

This page concerns artificial satellites. For natural satellites, see moon.

Satellites are constructed objects sent into planetary orbit for various reasons.

In the 1950s, the early age of satellites on Earth, the Soviet Union "space dog" Laika was sent into Earth orbit and died in a satellite. (EDA: Alien Bodies) By 2009, Earth had about 5000 satellites, including the Archangel Network and possibly the Guinevere satellites. (DW: The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords, Turn Left)

By 200,000 Earth had five moons, four possibly being artificial and possibly including Satellite Five, which was a space station despite its name. (DW: The Long Game)

Up until 5,000,000,000 the National Trust had used gravity satellites to hold back sol's expansion, but when money ran out they were turned off. (DW: The End of the World)

PS Name Telstar
GBA Name Satellite

The Satellite is a Monster-in-a-box in the game Final Fantasy VI found in a chest in the Imperial Camp. It is a dangerous enemy, but the rewards for fighting it are well worth it. It attacks with Scintillation, which inflicts Blind on both Sabin and Shadow. It can also use Missle to take away 1/4 of a characters max HP and give them Sap. It calls in two Soldiers after 25 seconds, three after 55 seconds, and four after 120 seconds. It also counters any Blitz with Mega Berserk, which puts both Sabin and Shadow in Berserk. A recommended strategy is to have Sabin use his physical and Shadow throw Shurikens.

Luckily, the Satellite appears on the Veldt, making it possible to stock up on Green Berets early.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A communications satellite.

A satellite was an object in orbit of another object, typically a planet. They could be natural, in which case they were normally called moons, or artificial, as in the case of such devices as Communications satellites and DOKAWs. Coruscant was ringed with artificial satellites, many of which fell from orbit due to disrepair when the Yuuzhan Vong occupied the world.

From Yu-Gi-Oh!

Typical street in Satelite.

Satellite is the name of a city in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. Yusei Fudo and his friends reside here. It is located on an island not far from New Domino. The name may come from it being a 'satellite' of the wealthier New Domino City.

Once the original Domino City from Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, the city suffers from extensive urban decay, and it is mostly used as a plant to recycle the garbage from New Domino City. Residents of Satellite are made to work in the plant, and are often looked down upon by many residents of New Domino City, generally referred as "scum" or "trash". Satellite residents do not have the purchasing power to acquire goods required for dueling on the market (or whatever economy is used in Satellite). There is no legal class mobility in Satellite.

The cities of Satellite and New Domino are connected only by a single pipeline used for transferring garbage from New Domino to Satellite. This is virtually the only way of leaving Satellite, with a specialist branch of Sector Security preventing the residents of Satellite from escaping to New Domino City.

The first Enerdy Reactor was located in Satellite. Because of this, the city is the home of the door to the Netherworld, guarded by the Dark Signers. According to Rex Goodwin the scant connection between opulent Domino City and destitute Satellite is because of the threat of the Dark Signers and the door to the Underworld. Goodwin reveals that to Yusei that, after the catastrophic Zero Reverse incident, he isolated New Domino City from its run-down counterpart in order to avoid the threat of the Dark Signers.

Before the final battle between the Signers and the Dark Signers commences, Yusei requests that Goodwin finally connects the two cities via the legendary Daedalus Bridge after the Dark Signers are defeated. Goodwin accepts the proposal, as there would be no reason to continue the partition after the defeat of the Dark Signers.

Even though Goodwin dies as one of the Dark Signers after being by defeated by Yusei in a final duel, a new and enormous bridge is constructed where the old Daedalus Bridge had been, finally connecting New Domino City and Satellite.

A view of Satellite after the completion of the Daedalus Bridge.

Also the connection between this two, brought some distinguitive change over Satellite itself. As its people since then work hard to change its misery and poor aspect. The results have been shown as Satellite's atmosphere have been completely changed as well as its own outlook. The sky is clearly free from smoke coming from the factories and all buildings have been rebuilted and new ones been made too.
