TA in a Nutshell – der Newsletter von openTA
(Aprilausgabe - Nr. 04 )
Informationsstand 03.04.2023 13:00 Uhr

 

Liebe TA-Community,

die neue Ausgabe unseres Newsletters ist da, zeitgleich mit der aktuellen TATuP zum special topic "Modeling for policy" (32/1, 2023), auf die wir Sie bei dieser Gelegenheit sehr gerne aufmerksam machen möchten.

Diesmal haben wir bei der KI ChatGPT naiv gefragt, ob die kommerzielle Raumfahrt (New Space) einen Beitrag leisten kann, um die Globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele (SDG) zu erreichen (engl.: can commercial space travel (new space) contribute to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)?) (siehe am Ende des Newsletters). Und mit Hilfe der Midjourney-KI erzeugten wir eine passende Illustration.

Das openTA-Team (Marius Albiez, Jonas Moosmüller, Len Piltz, Constanze Scherz, Ralf Schneider) wünscht eine spannende Lektüre und einen guten Jahresbeginn. Sie finden den Newsletter nachfolgend sowie hier auf openta.net.

Hinweis: Diese Abbildung wurde mithilfe der KI-Software https://midjourney.com/ erstellt.
Dabei kam der folgende Prompt-Text zum Einsatz: »can commercial space travel( new space) contribute to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals( SDG)?«

Naiv nachgefragt

Hier fragen wir regelmäßig beim KI-Dienst ChatGPT von „OpenAI“ nach (https://chat.openai.com/). Die Einordnung der Antworten sei Ihnen als Leser*in selbst überlassen - sowohl was die Inhalte als auch die zugrunde liegenden Werte und Normen angeht. ;)
Diesmal baten wir die KI, für uns die folgende Frage zu beantworten:

F:

Can commercial space travel (new space) contribute to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)?

A:

Yes, commercial space travel (also known as "New Space") has the potential to contribute to several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Here are some ways in which New Space could contribute to achieving the SDGs:

SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure: New Space companies are driving innovation in space technology, which can lead to advancements in communication, transportation, and infrastructure development. For example, companies such as SpaceX and Blue Origin are developing reusable rockets that could significantly reduce the cost of accessing space and make space travel more accessible for people.

SDG 13 - Climate Action: New Space companies can play a critical role in monitoring the earth's climate and environmental changes. For example, satellites can be used to monitor deforestation, track carbon emissions, and analyze weather patterns.

SDG 17 - Partnerships for the Goals: Commercial space travel is a global effort, with companies, governments, and organizations from around the world collaborating to achieve common goals. These partnerships can lead to shared knowledge, resources, and funding to help achieve the SDGs.

SDG 4 - Quality Education: New Space has the potential to inspire a new generation of scientists and engineers, and to provide educational opportunities for people around the world. For example, companies such as SpaceX and Blue Origin are working to create a more accessible and affordable space tourism industry, which could help to inspire more people to pursue careers in science and engineering.

Overall, commercial space travel has the potential to contribute to several of the Sustainable Development Goals. However, it is important to ensure that these efforts are conducted in a responsible and sustainable manner, taking into account the potential environmental and social impacts of space activities.

Dear TA community,

the new issue of our newsletter has arrived, together with the current TATuP on the special topic "Modelling for policy" (32/1, 2023), which we would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to.

This time on AI ChatGPT, we naively asked can commercial space travel (new space) contribute to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) (see at the end of the newsletter). And with the help of the Midjourney AI, we generated a fitting illustration.

The openTA team (Marius Albiez, Jonas Moosmüller, Len Piltz, Constanze Scherz, Ralf Schneider) wishes you an exciting read and a good start to the year. You can find the newsletter and here on openta.net.

Note: This illustration has been created with the help of the AI software https://midjourney.com/ by using the following keywords: »can commercial space travel( new space) contribute to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals( SDG)?«
