The Arab World and Space Research: Where Do We Stand?

The Arab World and Space Research: Where Do We Stand?

  • 27 January 1998

The lecture started with the underlining of the fact
that advances in space exploration have raised levels of
science and technology in countries with viable space
programs, with tangible benefits. Dr. El-Baz reviewed
the available satellite imaging systems and their data,
and outlined a proposal for the planning, launch, and
operation of “Desert Sat,” an imaging satellite to be
dedicated to photographing arid lands, particularly in
the Arab world. He gave examples of the practical uses
of space images in solving problems, particularly those
relating to a better understanding of the origin and
evolution of the Arab deserts.
