Mondays, March 20 - April 3,  6:30-8:30 p.m.

Imagine a day without space-based capabilities. What would happen to your television? How do you forecast the weather? Space-based capabilities touch your everyday life in so many unperceived ways. This course will examine the American and global dependency realized through space-based capabilities and how your daily life depends on those systems. We will look at the answers about satellite locations and their orbits, solar flares, and their effects on earth, how GPS works, and satellites' role in national security and commerce. And in all those movies, what is reality and what is director's license, fact versus fiction?
