Space Technology: This studies the exploration of space as that relates its surroundings, its environment, its form and retrieving living form availability or else if it can be used for living beings. Space technology helps scientists to know about the complete universe, its origin, age and its future.
Impact of Space Technology on Science & Scientists: Space technology has become one of the biggest study and challenge for the modern scientists. Space technology in association with other subject helps forecasting weather- its origin, time and magnitude, remote sensing, satellite television, moon mission, astrological predictions and also helps medical science in great deal. In short we can benefit the following things:
1. Movements & facts on Solar System and more about other stars
2. Forecasting Weather- Tsunami, cyclone can be forecasted.
3. Through Communication Satellites Telephone, TV transmission and sending messages can be fast.
4. To locate hidden things under earth i.e. locating natural resources, lower part of Oceans, Seas and its contents and day to day movements of earth.
5. Helps studying X-rays, ultra-Violet rays and disease cancer.
Modern scientists though have tested the success of space technology in the form of spacecraft, space mission i.e. moon mission, mars mission and many other things but the scientists are still on job for finding many unknown things about universe and like earth any other planet or stars have living being possibility or not.
Scientists are using various space technologies to know more about space and its use to the mankind through continuous research and experimentation. For this development they refer Newton’s Law of motion, Einstein’s theory of relativity and ancient philosopher’s like Aristotle and Galileo.
Space Mission: Though space mission is very old but its success came on October 4th 1957 when ‘Sputnik’ an artificial satellite was sent to space by Russian scientists and in the same year on November they sent another satellite Sputnik 2 with a dog in it.
On 12 April 1961 Col Yuri Gagarin a Russian astronaut became the first human being to go around the earth in space in a spacecraft called Vostok. On 16 June 1963 Col Velentina Tereshkova a Russian astronaut became the first woman to went around the earth in space. In between and after that many countries have sent their scientist and astronauts to the space and many things about the space have come out.
Future of Space Technology: There are a lot of things unknown about the universe till today which is to be explored and for this NASA is playing a crucial role in developing technology and collecting information about the universe. The way the spacecrafts are made and its technology being developed in high standard we will come to know much more things what are trying for years. This also will give one day an industry called space tourism.
