1.While the unit explored the impact that scientific research has on our society and on our understanding of space, this Ted Talk explores the way that space technologies and space research specifically can impact our society and current lives on Earth. Discuss the similarities and differences between these two topics. Compare and contrast the usefulness of scientific research on our society with the usefulness of space research on our lives on Earth. I think that scientific research and space research could go hand and hand on improving our lives on earth. Scientific research has given many the chance to pursue societal concerns such as ethics, aesthetics, education, and justice; to create cultures; and to improve human conditions. Space research has helped a lot as well by not only helping society become aware of the global issue we have today, but also giving scientists a way to learn and improve our life on earth by creating new technologies.
