GeekSpeak – space, what will it ever do for us?Join the discussion Saturday, February 17th at 12pm SLT

We are entering an era when every high school student has to make a cubesat for his homework.  At the same time more and more satellites are launched, on average one per week.  We rely on space satellites now for GPS, for communication, for the weather report.

Space has brought us so much new technology; digital cameras, pens that work underwater, scratch resistant lenses.  What else is to come?

What do you see in the future?  GPS down to millimetre resolution?  Satellites that can count the strawberries in your crop?  Will we zap the butterfly out of the sky before it causes chaos?

What will low earth orbit bring for you?
