Event description

Description

Micro-to-Macro: Space Technologies at Extremes of Length-Scale

Space technologies continue to be integrated seamlessly into our lives – pervasive high bandwidth global communications, Earth imaging for environmental monitoring and satellite navigation services. This lecture 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 which could disrupt our digital economy; large reflectors fabricated in-orbit to reflect sunlight onto terrestrial solar power farms to boost their output at dusk when output is low but demand is high; near Earth asteroids as a resource to reduce the scale of future space ventures by using material already at the top of the Earth’s deep gravity well.
