Space Technology for Sustainable Development

U.R. Rao (Author)

The dawn of the space age has brought with it remarkable developments for mankind. From shrinking time as well as distance, to changing the destinies of nations, and people--transcending geographic, economic, cultural and social boundaries. In a world where people are interconnected through the common thread of global environment and climate, there are areas where the divide between haves and have nots is really quite large. What is the story behind the various satellite launches? How has the revolution in satellite communication impacted upon the lives of urban as well as the rural people? How can space technology be better utilised for disaster management, urban planning, management of forest ecosystem agriculture, marine and resources management? For the first time, a distinguished space scientist, who has been a chief architect of Indian space programme answers these questions. Interwoven with great insights from science, technology, economics, social development, communication and combined with the author`s articulate style, this book is a general interest book. Besides discussing a number of topics including space communication, ecology, environment, food and economic security and the climate, the book foresees the future of space policies and national and international priorities.
