Description Institutional/Public Performance Rights
This program covers both scientific and and utility satellites. Geostationary utility satellites include communication, meteorological, and broadcasting satellites; the science satellites cover an almost limitless range, from Explorer 1’s discovery of the Van Allen Belt in 1958, to the discovery of solar wind and the gradual solution to the mystery of the polar auroras; Landsat, the Earth observation satellites, provide information for land utilization, water resource management, resource exploration, oceanic survey, and environmental monitoring. The program also covers such spin-off technologies as space suit material, high-temperature fire-fighting materials, nonflammable paper and fabrics, new insulating materials, vacuum refrigeration, and the energy-saving "Tech House."
