Simonetta Di Pippo, Markus Woltran, Martin Stasko

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Since the dawn of the space age in the late 1950s, humanity has come a long way in exploring and understanding space. Indeed, the very perception of outer space has changed dramatically in over six decades. Each and every year, the importance of space-based data, technologies, services and applications grows hand in hand with our increasing dependency on the benefits of utilizing outer space. The applicability of today’s space technology is incredibly broad and it enables us to monitor the dynamics of the most striking challenges of our time, including climate change, disasters or threats to sustainable development.
