It’s supposed to be an art project, but you be the judge.
It’s a big milestone for the African country.
It will stay there for centuries, if not a thousand years.
Like many other NASA technologies, this also proved to be really useful on Earth.
It also debunks one of climate deniers most cited argument.
Positioning errors will be decreased by a factor of 100.
Be more like him.
Its purpose still remains a mystery.
The first satellites could appear in 2019.
I can’t even muster enough willpower to count up to 104.
It’s way better than Facebook.
What a time to be alive.
Europa’s water is acting up.
Researchers have developed a method to identify impoverished areas using free information from satellite imagery.
Not much bigger than an apartment building, 2016 HO3 has been confirmed as Earth’s newest satellite.
Both civilian and military applications have become heavily reliant on digital communications, which in turn are dependent on space hardware like satellites. If only two decades ago, only the biggest companies or wealthy governments could afford to launch permanent or semi-permanent satellites. Today, satellites are smaller, better and cheaper than they ever were, which is why there are more than 1,100 active satellites orbiting the planet. However, they’re as vulnerable as ever, too.
The first Earth Observing System (EOS) satellite called Terra (previously AM-1) was launched on December 18, 1999. ASTER data contributes to a wide array of global change-related application areas including vegetation and ecosystem dynamics, hazard monitoring, geology and soils, hydrology, and land cover change. It’s also perfect background material for your home PC. But it’s not just pretty pictures that NASA
It always baffles me how some publish completely misleading clickbait titles.
It was a bittersweet moment for SpaceX, as the space flight company successfully launched a communications satellite to a distant orbit but failed to land the remnants safely. This wasn’t completely unexpected though, as this was more a way to test the waters for the next launch. After a bunch of frustrating delays, SpaceX successfully launched a communications satellite to a
A couple decades ago, satellite were solely the provision of governments, since they were the only ones that could afford launching billions dollars worth of tech into space. Slowly but surely, corporations hitched a ride and now, when an imaging satellite can fit in the palm of your hand and costs only a fraction it used to, small enterprises are flourishing. Along with them is innovation.
