Space Technology Spinoffs

How Space Exploration Has Benefited Life on Earth

canadarm robotic technology
Canadarm Robotic Technology
  • Robotic arm that performed tasks on the ISS
  • Used in designing prosthetic hands from amputees
  • Used in robotics to clean up toxic spills, bomb defusing
  • Testing underway to see if can be used to conduct remote robotic surgeries in areas where specialists are not readily available

GPS
  • Global Positioning Systems
  • Originally used by the military
  • Today 24 GPS satellites orbit Earth, twice daily
  • Used to find longitude/latitude of a receiver anywhere on Earth, regardless of weather conditions
how gps systems work
How GPS Systems Work
  • 3+ satellites send a signal to the receiver
  • Uses triangulation to determine location
  • Transmit information continuously

How Does a GPS Work

First satellite tells you that you are 340km from Toronto

With a compass draw a circle around Toronto that represents a radius of 340km.

A second satellite tells you that you are 800km from Thunder Bay

Draw a circle around Thunder Bay that represents a radius of 800km

A third satellite tells you that you 350km from Iroquois Falls

Draw a circle around Iroquois Falls that represents a radius of 350km

Determine your location

Answer the Following:

Why use 3 satellites

Some cellphones now have GPS technology, what might you use this for?

health benefits of space exploration
Health Benefits of Space Exploration
  • Blood pressure monitors originally used to monitor the blood pressure of astronauts during launchs
  • Dialysis pumps used to treat individuals with kidney disease originally used to filter and recycle water on the ISS
  • Alloys used to make instruments lighter but stronger also used to make artificial limbs/joints
