Abstract

This IQP explores the importance of the space program in society. It focuses on the impact of how space technology enhances our lives on Earth. We present a history of the space program and describe five examples of space technology and specific uses: remote sensing, GPS, radar, SAR, and lidar. We conclude with a brief cost assessment and survey in support of the view that space funding is justifiably valuable.
