The IT Pro Podcast: Bringing space tech down to earth

Space exploration is currently in the midst of a renaissance, with more and more private companies and national governments launching test flights, satellites and probes. Just recently, scientists generated oxygen on Mars, and flew a remote helicopter over its surface. 

But what will these advances in space exploration mean for those of us stuck here on earth? The space race of the 60s led to many innovations that we still use today – including LASIK, cordless vacuums and even OpenStack – so what technology could the race for Mars bring us? This week, we’re joined by Paul Kostek, advisory systems engineer with Base2 Solutions and IEEE senior member, to find out what developments the future of space travel could bring us.
