How has space exploration affected our daily life? Why should we continue to explore this frontier? Science fiction author David Brin discusses the technology payoffs of the space program.
If NASA had received a mere 1% royalty on all technological spin-offs of the space program, its budget would be covered. For starters consider communication, navigation, reconnaissance & weather satellites, GPS, solar cells, fuel cells, microelectronics, image processing, robotics, CCDs, a generation of scientists, engineers, teachers & artists inspired. Where would we be without these? We must invest in tomorrow
David is the author of books such as The Postman, Startide Rising and The Uplift War. visit
