Since satellites are not visible to ground stations 100% of the time, at times, there can be a significant delay in executing a user request. Therefore, the satellite API is asynchronous. Functions return a request object, which you can query for the request completion status by calling the
.status()method. The request status will remain
Pendingas long as the satellites are out of reach of any ground station. As soon as it is executed, the status will switch to
Ready. The user can then safely call the
.result()method to obtain the satellite response.
