If Atlantis was so advanced why no satellites?

If Atlantis was as advanced as people say and the Aliens assisted them with technology why haave we not found evidence of of satellite? Why no signs of advanced technology at all? Or have we?

Maybe their technology was so advanced they did not need satellites.

Maybe they had some technology that could communicate around the planet without satellites.

When you think that the life of a satellite is a few decades at most, even when having it's orbit corrected, then in theory they would have re-entered and burned up 100s or thousands of years ago.

I would say that possible all signs of Atlantis (possibly satellites) have gone, may be if Aliens did aid them or if they were aliens themsleves then the technology may have been destroyed or taken away.
Or perhaps Atlantis wasnt as advanced as they claim but was advanced to the peoples of Earth (Eypt, Maya etc) and called it wonderous technology.
Atlantis could be long gone and if we found it- i doubt the Governments would say they found it and take the technology and say they invented it.
Good question anyway mate! Hope one day we do find Atlantis and the Atlanteans but that may never happen.

I agree with you Alpha Grey. It is perhaps very true that they were so well advanced, that they did not need the little things we currently have in LEO. Perhaps they had a higher form of communiating through mental telepathy or even something more advanced.

Thanks for the replies, I wasnt sure on the orbital lifespan of satellites. Also what about the maps of Antartica? There are accurate maps of the place before it was "discovered" by modern humans, how would ancient people be able to map that area? One more note, earth crust displacement, is it possible?

Maybe their satellites were cloaked, or maybe the moon is theirs. Or if they still live among us some of ours could actually be theirs etc.

Having only the moon as a satellite would kind of defeat the purpose of reaching around the planet.

Personally I dont think satellites have anything to do with being advanced. We had nuclear bombs before we had satellites, where we not advanced?

This is also assuming they actually needed to communicate globally. If they centered on Atlantis and considered everyone else to be inferior, that would not be the case: They only needed "nationwide" communications.

Satellites are a material technology, where as I think they probably used spiritual technology in Atlantis, incorporating the use of crystals, maybe?

Our technology isnt advanced, look at the mess we make on the planet. If their technology was in harmony with the planet, then it must have been spiritually based and probably way beyond anything we can comprehend.

Well, that's my thoughts anyway.

I go with this one all the way. Limiting the [supposed] Atlantians to a need of satellites, is confining their technology [and/or that of outsiders] is confining what is sought of them to modern human technology standards.

just a question, if atlantians are among us and they see we are trying to find them, why dont they let us

Agent Smith makes the best point. Satellites typically burn back into the earth after about thirty years. A better question might be: If Atlantis was an Island Nation, where is the evidence of a fleet? Surely they had a Navy!

maybe advanced in a different way as in harnessing the power of crystals and such...more spiritual advance ment probably

Maybe they where SO advanced, they could make edible ships.

Outside the box: If they were as advanced as is thought of, perhaps by sail is not the preferred method of travel. Perhaps sail, to them, would be archaic.

Perhaps Plato created Atlantis so as to instigate the population to go above and beynd their current technological level. It has happened since, like Space Oddysess and so on.

Simply put, we use the term advanced civilization to mean advanced for its time. That means that assuming the Atlanteans existed, compared to other civilizations of there time, they were pretty advanced, but not more advanced than us.

Or, maybe they where as advanced as Plato described them, with swords and shields, horses and stone buildings, much like Athens back in the days which they fought and lost against...

Currently, what do we use sattelites for?
1. Communications:
----We currently have the technology to bounce certain signals off of the atmosphere, is it not possible that the atlanteans could do this too, on a more advanced scale?

2. ICBM tracking networks:
----Not needed, since there were no earth-based enemies of the Atlanteans (they were all interstellar, with FTL/timespace-folding technology). Besides, any craft picked up on the scanners would be intercepted by vessels travelling in the upper atmosphere.

3. Weapons:
----Any weapon of significant strength needs a fuel source, and it would be impractical to have self-sustainable sattelites in orbit that could respond to attacks, so instead they could use a network of refractor arrays to wirelessly channel power to nodes in the network as it was needed. Once the power in the network was stopped, the sattelites would have succumbed to decaying orbit.

4. Orbital platforms/Space stations:
----With the ability to warp space and time it would seem pointless to have a permanently fixed landing pad as a planetary sattelite. It would make more sense to have the wormhole exit somewhere in between earth, mars, that planet that used to be where the asteroid belt now is, and that planet/artificial moon that lives outside the orbit of pluto.


It IS possible that the Atlanteans may have accidentally left behind some sattelites, but after 14 thousand years you'd think that the sattelites would have been destroyed by debris, or taken/destroyed by other alien races (or even our own), or that they even ARE still out there, and that the governments aren't telling us about them.

P.S Stargate: Atlantis is a major disinformation attempt, don't take any of it's # seriously.

Though I highly highly doubt Atlantis could have been close to space based technology since thats really a moderen Fantasy. Power crystals and such Plato never said any of that.

But Agent Smith hit it on the head, satellite orbit's are decaying all the time they need regular orbit corrections to maintain their orbit.

None of our satellites would last close to thousands of years in earth orbit they would have burned up long long ago.
