Space technology, particularly the use of satellites, has significantly influenced multiple sectors, including water management. Water management entails the collection, transportation, treatment, and distribution of water for various uses such as agriculture, municipal supply, and industrial processes. Effective water management also involves monitoring water quality, predicting water availability, and mitigating the effects of natural disasters like floods and droughts. This article reviews the role of space technology in global water management.Read More How Can Space Technology Help With Water Management?
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), commonly known as UFOs, have captured public imagination for decades. However, scientific research into these phenomena has been limited. NASA recently released a report by an independent study team outlining how the agency can leverage its expertise and assets to enhance the scientific study of UAP. Satellite imaging and space-based observations will play a key role in this endeavor.Read More The Role of Satellite Imaging and Space-Based Observations in UAP Research

Astrobiology is an interdisciplinary scientific field that focuses on the study of life in the universe, including its origin, evolution, distribution, and future. This field not only examines the possibility of life existing elsewhere in the universe but also studies life on Earth to better understand the conditions and mechanisms that could potentially support life in other parts of the cosmos.Read More What is Astrobiology?
