Technology for Exploration

Technology for Exploration is about the creative and varied solutions that engineers have designed to help humans explore Earth, the Solar System, and beyond. Each section of the book is organized by function and describes how different kinds of technology can serve the same function in different conditions. Through reading about various technologies, students are reminded that the conditions in the place to be explored dictate design features. This book provides support for students’ firsthand investigations by providing relevant ideas for their own designs.
