How Satellites Rule Our WorldStreaming Video - 2013
Satellites play a bigger part in modern life than most people ever consider. These masterpieces of technology are the single greatest product of the space program and have transformed our world. Not only do they provide everyday services - satellite TV, GPS, timekeeping, weather tracking - they've revealed lost cities, protected endangered species, taken lives in war and saved them in natural disasters. In this program, space scientist Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock explains all of this as she traces the history of satellites from their origins through to today's hugely complex spacecraft.
