It is important to remember the immense value that space provides. For all of us, satellites have become integrated into 21st-century society, much as electricity and mass communications became integral to 20th-century modernity. From agriculture to national security, environmental monitoring to finance, commercial fishing to emergency services, space-based services—invisible but invaluable—enable or assist a diversity of everyday applications in ways that we may take for granted. Space-based communications, navigation, weather, and remote sensing services make our daily lives better, and contribute to saving lives and property.
