In today’s time, some parts of the Earth is already deteriorating because of climate change. If humans abandon this planet, will it heal the Earth? For some valid reasons, scientists, researchers, and other ambitious companies believed that for the coming years, space exploration and technology can be the ticket for human and environmental conservation.
Cli-Fi or Climate Fiction
In 1889, famous writer Jules Verne, also known as the Father of Science Fiction, was fascinated by the idea of celestial exploration. In relation to climatic change, he wrote The Purchase of the North Pole not only as a channel of entertainment but as a call for the readers to act as if every word in this literature is real and happening. Now, most writers and even filmmakers have turned to Cli-Fi (Climate Fiction).
Space exploration encourages companies to include very direct monitoring and observation of the Earth’s condition. The public and private corporations are welcome to invest in this new and unique business venture that somehow will allow them to get higher investment returns while saving the Earth.
As the Chief Sustainability Officer and Chief Marketing of Morgan Stanley, Audrey Choi had stated that the solution to addressing and evaluating climate change is through satellite and space technology. This will be a powerful tool and will enable the people to understand how sustainability is relevant to determine environmental issues, Earth’s insufficiency, and human behaviour.
The Benefits of Space Exploration and Technology
There are potential advantages that can be seen in business investments while patronizing sustainability and stabilization of the Earth’s future:
· Continuous Food Supply:
Monitoring the Earth’s condition from outer space will help identify illegal exploitation, product tracing, supply chain, and weather forecast, thereby increasing yields.
Detection of unwanted chemicals, leaks from factories, and other industrial operations that destroy the environment.
· Power System:
Electricity is very important to attain sustainability. Through satellite, engineers and other scientists are can improve power system modelling and power distribution.
· Renewable Energy:
Though most countries have already set up their resources for renewable energy, satellite technology can play an important part in optimising usage.
Observing the global supply chain, satellite data will enable researchers and companies whether they need to continue building constructions, transportations, shipping, mining, and other activities to maintain the supply and demand chains in the market.
· Internet Connection:
Since billions of people rely on internet connection nowadays, rocket launching is done to carry important elements and staff to secure excellent internet connection. This will help most countries to increase their GDP by 2.5% based on research.
· Technology and Innovation:
To benefit more, technology in fields of electronics and communication, healthcare, robotics, software engineering, electrical and mechanical, biochemistry, other practices, satellite data, and analysis will have to become simpler and push their limits in order to be able to sustain life in space. This will lead to a better understanding of human physiology and needs.
The Earth’s future does not depend on outer space but it relies on the people who go in and out of it to take charge of sustaining the health of our planet. It is a big thanks to all the companies out there and research firms who never stopped to prioritize human welfare. For a better understanding and roadmap, we need better comprehension of spatial data and geospatial analytics.
