Produced by the Space Division of Rockwell International, this 1970s industrial film focuses on how the space program serves as a tool for the management and preservation of Earth. Airborne sensor systems benefit agricultural and geological endeavors, while weather satellites improve meteorological ones. The Space Shuttle program, then in development, further promotes conservation efforts. Its use of a resuable orbiter drastically reduces spaceflight costs. The first orbital mission of the Space Shuttle program, STS-1, launched on April 12, 1981. The program formally ended on August 31, 2011. Rockwell served as the program’s primary contractor.
