Connecting the World by Leaving the Planet

Connecting the World by Leaving the Planet

In this episode of Terranauts we talk about the beginnings of the other great endeavour in space. Instead of talking about leaving the planet to explore space, we're going to talk about the early efforts to work from space to understand the Earth and improve life here. Specifically, we are going to talk about the early efforts to literally connect the world, by sending satellites to space. Along the way we're going to introduce another first Terranaut. In this case, it's John H Chapman, Canada's first Terranaut, and one of the people that more or less invented the profession we now refer to as the "Space Scientist."
