Pioneer 5 Probe
To study the long-term effects of weightlessness on the human body
The space probe Mariner 10
Space systems and space - based technologies play a very important role in our lives.
Many objects and systems which were created for space application are now used daily on Earth.
Most of the products and services we use today are developed with the help of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)
NASA has many spinoff technologies.
A spinoff is is a secondary beneficial effect or product.
I am sure all of us would have had baby food when we were babies. But did anybody know how it developed?
How did Baby Food develop?
importance of algae as a recycling agent
this ingredient is known as "
it was developed for astronauts to get energy during their space travel
it turned out to be a major spinoff
How did this formula become Baby Food?
scientists found several acids in space that would help a child grow
with more research, nutrients like DHA were added to the food
then this food was available for people to use on Earth
= New discoveries?
NASA has made inventions in robotics
they created new and better solutions for animals and human prostheses (artificial body parts)
NASA made these technologies for space robotics and extravehicular activities carried out in outer space
They are built to carry...
fortunately, this product was useful on Earth since it gave people new arms and legs which worked well for them
Hitt, David. "What Is a Rocket?" NASA Educational Technology Services. Web. 15 Dec. 2014. <http://www.nasa.gov/audience/foreducators/rocketry/home/what-is-a-rocket-k4.html#.VI9iJPnF-T8>.
they prevent friction between skin and let heat build up
another major spinoff in NASA since the outer space did not allow artificial robotics to work well
telecommunications devices we all use today in our daily lives to communicate with one another were made with the help of NASA
WHY has NASA contributed to inventing long-distance telecommunication?
NASA built long-distance telecommunication devices for astronauts to use in outer space.
Why was it a major Spinoff?
"Many countries worked together to build it. They also work together to use it." -David Hitt
the network in space is extremely weak
they also had lack of equipment in space, to allow access to long-distance telecommunication devices
move supplies, equipment and astronauts
it can also perform "cosmic catches," which it basically capturing and docking an unpiloted spacecraft
Benefits on Earth
allows us to communicate with people all around the world
positive impact on public welfare
why is the last slide there do u need it?
Space based technologies and systems are a very important part of our society. These devices help us with our education, they help in giving people a new life, and they also give strength to children for their future growth. As a result space research spurs technological innovation that enhances our daily lives and has benefited many people all over the world in many other ways.
Space Shuttle Atlantis
SPACE TRANSPORTATION TECHNOLOGY
The International Space station
NASA's Saturn V rocket carried humans to the moon.
Newton's 3rd law
"for every action there is an
equal and opposite reaction"
Think of the rocket's as a balloon. When the speedy moving jet gases rush out from the back of the rocket,
the engine has no choice but to move forward, just like a balloon.
But instead of letting out air, rocket engines let out fuel
Parts of the ISS
Travel far distances
Data collected will be sent back to Earth
Example of the uses of data collected from probes:
"to help us understand the weather and other changes which happen on planets other than the Earth. This information is important in helping to plan other space missions such as ones to Mars and to Saturn"
Example of a Probe
