Overview

Recent developments in telecommunications have led to new developments in tele-services, particularly tele-health and tele-education, for the benefit of those living in either the developed world or the less developed world. The benefits accrue to individuals and also to society at large.
An international and interdisciplinary Symposium was organized by the International Space University to bring together technical and non-technical people to consider the future applications of space techniques to tele-services. The Proceedings of this Symposium are essential reading for all who need to appreciate the broad range of issues involved in this developing area.

Technical and non-technical contributors project how space science might aid in providing services such as education and health through telecommunications media. The keynote addresses cover The Next Billion Years: Space and the Human Challenge, and Space Technology: A Boon to Health and Education Services Worldwide. The other 24 papers discuss such aspects as satellite-delivered services in the face of migrating markets, telemedicine education programs for medical students, space and the global vision of a typical village in the developing world, a space-based system and operating strategy for providing global geoinformation services, opening new business frontiers for entrepreneurs in China, nation states in the global village, and a Web-based education program on NASA Space Shuttle processing.
