Micro-To-Macro: Space Technologies at Extremes of Length-Scale
August 8, 2020 3:00pm Online
Space technologies continue to be integrated seamlessly into our lives such as high bandwidth global communications and Earth imaging for environmental monitoring and satellite navigation services. This talk will explore a range of emerging space technologies which could enable new services including; swarms of ‘smart dust’ devices to monitor the space environment for ‘space weather’ events; large reflectors fabricated in-orbit to reflect sunlight onto terrestrial solar power farms to boost their output at dawn and dusk and near Earth asteroids as a resource to reduce the scale of future ventures by using material already at the top of the Earth’s deep gravity well.
