    What does they mean?

    No theorist today would deny that the plates do move. Satellites anchored in space record the minute movement of fixed sites on Earth.(the volcano)

    I don't understand this sentence.

    Which words do you not understand?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: What does they mean?

    A sentence would be an "it", not a "they".

    Re: What does they mean?

    Clearly, the satellites are not anchored in space. And you provide no context for the sentence. Nevertheless, I think it is about tectonic plates.

    Lê Thiên Hoàng, do you understand 'Satellites record the minute movement of fixed sites on Earth'?
    I am not a teacher.

    Satellites record the movement of volcanoes - the fixed sites on Earth.
    The satellites are anchored in space.
    The movements are minute (small).
