Abstract
A glance at the stars and, based on their location in the night sky, the calculation of your individual position on Earth was one of the three approaches used 125 years ago by the Royal Prussian Geodetic Institute on the Telegrafenberg. When “Sputnik 1”, the Earth’s first artificial escort (lat. Satellite), took up duty in 1957 the night shift for an astronomical geodesist changed dramatically. From that moment on not only objects from the catalog on stars were taken into account but satellites were now also tracked. Since then, the role of satellites in all geoscientific research has been steadily increasing. For a long time, satellites have not only provided details on position, but this modern positioning also provides exciting insights into the Earth‘s atmosphere. Furthermore, for years, satellites themselves have also provided images of the Earth‘s surface so that geo-researchers can, thus, analyze ongoing processes on the surface of our planet. This paper presents a loose outline of the development of satellite application on the Telegrafenberg and puts the reader in the mood for the following articles on geoscientific applications of satellites at the GFZ.
