Engineer Danielle Wood asks "How can a satellite be an instrument of justice?" Her Space Enabled Research Lab considers how we can repurpose satellites, which we already use for cell phone and Internet service, to change the world for the better. Collaborating with local and national governments, non-profits, and entrepreneurial firms, Danielle and her team identify opportunities for space technology to improve public services and solve global problems.
