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
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.

Quick explanation of Wikipedia outlines
"Outline" is short for "hierarchical outline". There are two types of outlines: sentence outlines (like those you made in school to plan a paper), and topic outlines (like the topical synopses that professors hand out at the beginning of a college course). Outlines on Wikipedia are primarily topic outlines that serve 2 main purposes: they provide taxonomical classification of subjects showing what topics belong to a subject and how they are related to each other (via their placement in the tree structure), and as subject-based tables of contents linked to topics in the encyclopedia. The hierarchy is maintained through the use of heading levels and indented bullets. See Wikipedia:Outlines for a more in-depth explanation. The Transhumanist 00:10, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
