Crowded Orbits: Understanding Satellites with Author Clay Moltz
As science educators, we are likely to recognize Sputnik as the first satellite in space. But what has happened with satellites since Sputnik? How many satellites are even out there, and how do we rely upon them? To help answer some of these questions, we welcome Dr. James Clay Moltz to the show. As author of Crowded Orbits, Dr. Moltz examines the conflict and cooperation in space with the growing number of satellites managed by public, commercial and even private entities. Listen to the show to learn about our history with satellites in space, what the future of satellites might look like, and what that could mean for our students today.
