The talk will give a unified perspective on one of the most precious commodities underpinning the globalised world: the electromagnetic spectrum. In particular, we will describe how electromagnetic waves have been used over the years to create the global village and the modern world as we know it. How waves can be used to help fight global warming will be discussed along with how waves and remote sensing help in saving lives. Finally, how can the electromagnetic spectrum be used to create the next generation of computers and the internet?
