Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) has released How Space Saves Lives, the organization’s newest Better Satellite World video.
Aimed at middle and senior high school students, the video explains how satellite technology brings us food and education as well as invaluable data for navigation, surveillance and disaster response that helps save lives around the world every day.
How Space Saves Lives is the third in a video series, sponsored by Hunter Communications, that aims to teach the next generation of space enthusiasts about the role satellites play in everyday life. The first two videos in the series: The Road to Space and Is There a Satellite Inside? are available to watch on SSPI’s website.
“We are grateful to Hunter Communications for proposing this series of educational videos and funding their production,” said executive director, Robert Bell. “There is a ton of STEM and STEAM content out there but remarkably little of it covers the real-world commercial industry that is building a growing space economy. When kids get excited about space, we want them to think of us first, and these three videos are our contribution.”
How Space Saves Lives debuted at the 2021 SSPI Chairman’s Reception in Washington DC. You can watch the video on SSPI’s website and on YouTube.
