8 Summary

Now is a good time to revisit the learning outcomes for this week. Here is a summary of what you have covered.

  • You have considered the cost of space research for NASA, the US and the world.
  • You have compared these costs with other expenditures.
  • You have considered ‘good’ and ‘bad’ science approaches.

Next week, you will look at the opportunities for microgravity research in the future, as well as the opportunities for you to study so that you can be part of the space-enabled future. You will also see if you have what it takes to become an astronaut.

Week 8 is the final week of this course. At the end, you will have the opportunity to take the Week 8 compulsory badge quiz and, if you pass it, receive your well-earned badge!
