NASA uses space technology to help life on earth

March 3 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


In recognition of World Engineering Day (WED) and this year’s theme, engineering innovation for a more resilient world, Engineers Australia is proud to bring you a free webinar exploring the innovative NASA technologies that are helping to solve climate challenges on earth.

NASA’s Technology Transfer program ensures that innovations developed for exploration and discovery in space are broadly available to the public, maximising the benefit to humankind. NASA has profiled more than 2,000 spinoffs since 1976. These are technologies that have benefitted life on earth in the form of commercial products.

During this webinar, Daniel Lockney, Technology Transfer Program Executive at NASA, will review several spinoffs and look at current advancements that will have applications and implications for life on earth.
