Heated Discussion[edit]

I and my classmates had a heated discussion today, Space technology was the question. The burning issue was a definition. I hold the view that Space Technology is just the application of already existing technology which is based on well established scientific principles with the ultimate aim of taking advantage of the potentials of space (everything outside of the earth and its atmosphere).
I must confess that the only confusing thing appears to be the reason why we had a heated discussion, but now i see that it is because this very topic is broad and over a thousand perspectives are possible as it influences almost every aspect of our existence today - defense, agriculture, communication, politics and so on.

Specific space technologies[edit]

I dispute the addition of some of the links under the heading Specific space technologies. Atmospheric braking is a maneuver that utilizes the atmosphere of a planet to slow a vehicle. It is not a specific technology. Human staffed missions are, well, missions. Spacecraft propulsion is a toss-up - and the more i look at it the more i believe it should stay. Real time links to a disambiguation page, and i am unsure if it is meant to link to real-time computing or real-time operating system, and what the specific application being linked is.

Redirect of Space spinoffs[edit]

Who redirected the "Space spinoffs" page to this page? There are so many to discuss that it really deserves a page to itself. Shannon bohle (talk) 23:35, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Intro formatting[edit]

The computers and telemetry paragraph reads like original research and is not sourced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JFrazer1 (talkcontribs) 04:07, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
