When astronauts are levitating in space for the first time, they experience what’s it likes to observe earth for the first time suspended in the nothingness of space. The so-called ‘overview-effect’ wherein you understand deeply how the planet looks like from the outside and not being a part of it.
In this big data era, it’s difficult to ascertain what future cities will look like, it’s always a great to plan the cities of future and their architecture. Design thinking and ergonomics will certainly play a big deal of role. The retail data can be collaborated as to how much footfall stores receive. Welcome to a world of big data and analytics, leveraging which we are literally going to go out of the earthling ways.
The role of big data and analytics won’t stay put to activities in corporate houses only. Agriculture will be heavily influenced by it as the crop patterns and optimum weather conditions can be known. Moreover, disaster management and the weather forecast is easy with features that can be detected in space. The prices of satellites are continuously dropping and what used to be doing of governments only are completely being taken by private organizations and individuals. We always have people like Elon Musk breaking the glass ceilings to reach the top of experimental experience.
Improvising and improving on the features of one experiment leads to advancement, sophistication, and optimization of products and services. Launching satellites, creating laboratories with zero gravity, levitation, and space travel used to be the priorities of governments, but Space and Tesla are changing the ways of application of big data and analytics. Based on the investments pouring from venture capitalists, the parts and pivots of satellites are procured, and new satellites being developed at far lesser prices- the reason why 35% of satellites have been put up for commercial purposes. Start-ups are showing the way as to how it can be done effortlessly.
Manufacturing is seeing a new day in this new light of data. Traffic patterns can be noticed and controlled. Water scarcity and enormity can be exchanged for each other by collecting useful data from space like pictures, numbers, and real-time facts which can alter the consequences for the human beings. The collected data has to be mined, easily sorted out, and worked on for pivotal information for actions to be taken on.
We have come so far in the journey of space. From Apollo’s moon mission to people planning for space travel by 2050- space exploration is going to be fun. Data science makes it possible for organizations not based on space activities, to leverage data from there to transform their business perspectives on earth. This has even been reported by studies dropping in from Sparks and Honey. We are trying to touch the finger of the ‘final frontier, and it will be amazing a wait to see what the future of space holds for each one of us on earth.
