Space Technology On Science & Scientists

Impact of Space Technology on Science & Scientists: Space technology has become one of the biggest study and challenge for the modern scientists. Space technology in association with other subject helps forecasting weather- its origin, time and magnitude, remote sensing, satellite television, moon mission, astrological predictions and also helps medical science in great deal. In short we can benefit the following things:

1. Movements & facts on Solar System and more about other stars

2. Forecasting Weather- Tsunami, cyclone can be forecasted.

3. Through Communication Satellites Telephone, TV transmission and sending messages can be fast.

4. To locate hidden things under earth i.e. locating natural resources, lower part of Oceans, Seas and its contents and day to day movements of earth.

5. Helps studying X-rays, ultra-Violet rays and disease cancer.

Modern scientists though have tested the success of space technology in the form of spacecraft, space mission i.e. moon mission, mars mission and many other things but the scientists are still on job for finding many unknown things about universe and like earth any other planet or stars have living being possibility or not.

Scientists are using various space technologies to know more about space and its use to the mankind through continuous research and experimentation. For this development they refer Newton’s Law of motion, Einstein’s theory of relativity and ancient philosopher’s like Aristotle and Galileo.

Space Mission: Though space mission is very old but its success came on October 4th 1957 when ‘Sputnik’ an artificial satellite was sent to space by Russian scientists and in the same year on November they sent another satellite Sputnik 2 with a dog in it. On 12 April 1961 Col Yuri Gagarin a Russian astronaut became the first human being to go around the earth in space in a spacecraft called Vostok. On 16 June 1963 Col Velentina Tereshkova a Russian astronaut became the first woman to went around the earth in space. In between and after that many countries have sent their scientist and astronauts to the space and many things about the space have come out.

Future of Space Technology: There are a lot of things unknown about the universe till today which is to be explored and for this NASA is playing a crucial role in developing technology and collecting information about the universe. The way the spacecrafts are made and its technology being developed in high standard we will come to know much more things what are trying for years. This also will give one day an industry called space tourism.

Computer Science in College

In December 2009, the National Science Foundation (NSF) held the Computer Science Education Week, designated by the US House of Representatives “ recognition of the transformative role of computing and necessity of rigorous computer science education at all levels.”The said event emphasized on the need to include more computer science courses for secondary level students, citing the foreseen demand for information technologists in the next several years; and that, while several of the employment opportunities will not require full degrees, “..all of them require a solid background in computer science.” (NSF, 2009).
Advancement in the computing science field will most definitely be heightened by seeking higher and continuing education. In fact, the popularity of computer science, along with other related programs, saw an increase in the last year throughout several colleges (Markoff, 2009); making it one of the most sought-after college majors in the US. Generally defined, this field of study involves the examination of computing theories and their applications. Computer science majors delve into how computers operate, various programming languages, algorithms, operating systems, understanding the internet, website development, information systems, and many others.Basic requirements for a computer science degree include at least 120 credit hours worth of various courses which include applied mathematics, natural and physical sciences, humanities, social science, and technical writing.

Computer science students are prepared to be experts in the application of mathematical and computing principles in developing and implementing computer-based systems and software as well as conduct effective research on computing and other affiliated disciplines. The Association for Computing Machinery indicates several career options for computer science graduates, a few of which are:* Software design and implementation
* Computer technology application
* Management of IT infrastructures for organizationsOther career options include network administration, website and web graphics design and development, and computing research. The average salaries for computer science and computer engineering graduates, ranked among the top-earning degrees in the country, are both pegged at USD 61,000 (Pepitone, 2009). Combining a computer science degree with other fields of study such as biology, engineering, psychology, forensics, journalism, advertising, business administration, and several other courses should make way for even more lucrative careers.Attending any college will surely require huge costs and going for a Computer Science degree is no exception. There are, however, financial aid options available. The amount of scholarships and grants vary with each college and are awarded to qualified students. Application for federal student aid begins with accomplishing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form which is available online.

A number of top corporations also offer undergraduate scholarships as well as future employment opportunities in their respective fields. For those seeking acceptance into graduate schools, rendering hours as research or teaching assistants may help supplement tuition costs. In recognizing the statistical decline of women in the field of computer science, the committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W) also lists fellowships for women who wish to further their computer science education .
