I was trying to find by search, in the wiki or in the FAQ: how  do satellites work?

Clearly satellites DO work somehow as anyone with a satellite TV dish can confirm: unless you point the dish to where the geostationary orbit has placed the satellite, you won't be able to receive a signal.

Also non-geostationary satellites can be observed in the night sky when they reflect the light of the sun for a short instance.

The International Space Station, being the largest satellite, can be observed with a simple pair of binoculars by anyone interested.

Satellites also provide tons of photographs many of which are publicly accessible and show a round Earth, and they include photos of the south pole.

How does all this conform to FET?
