Alex Madden Astronomy 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. People in developing countries have a harder time getting to study space because they do not have access to the equipment that wealthier countries have. It has nothing to do with their intelligence and everything to do with money. It’s useful knowing that others need help to understand space and how important it is. 2. What is the Outer Space Treaty? What idea that Wood discusses does this treaty help to illustrate? How? Explain.
