Aerospace may refer to :

1. Of or pertaining to both the earth's atmosphere and space, as in aerospace industries.

Atmosphere being the envelope of air surrounding the earth; the body of gases surrounding or comprising any planet or other celestial body, and space which denotes the part of the universe lying outside the limits of the earth's atmosphere and the volume in which all celestial bodies, including the earth, move.

2. Earth's envelope of air and space above it; the two considered as a single realm for activity in the flight of air vehicles and in the launching, guidance, and control of ballistic missiles, earth satellites, dirigible space vehicles, and the like.

Aerospace makes reference to the development of aircraft technologies, such as most new military and civil airplanes, helicopters, spacecraft (communication satellites excepted), turbojet aircraft engines, flight simulators, and automatic pilots. Likewise, it is defined as the science of the earth's atmosphere and outer space.
