Synopsis by Alice Day
Developments in space technology have far-ranging applications, as satellites and rocket fuel advances find commercial utilization. In short segments, Space Tech: From Safer Runways to Experimental Planes provides glimpses into the ways scientists can study active volcanoes more safely. Volcanologists can explore potential eruptive sites with both satellites and robots with less of the hazards associated with their profession. The disposal of rubber tires has been a challenge for the waste industry, but with knowledge gained from liquid nitrogen, tires can be recycled.
