A US startup hopes its 'mircoballoon' platform can provide aerial photography to a new host of users, including charities, farmers and rescuers.
Satellites have long been used to monitor deforestation, but how can that data be used to actively create results on the ground?
By utilising Google's powerful Earth Engine, a Brazilian project is efficiently generating the data needed for policymakers to make better decisions about the environment.
Poorly understood peatlands have long been carelessly exploited, releasing their stored up carbon. With the help of satellites and advanced software, researchers now hope to accurately measure their vital signs.
The satellite images made during large ESA and NASA space missions are freely accessible to the general public - in theory at least. But in reality, not everyone can use them. Niklas Jordan wants to change that, with his project OpenSpaceData.
Satellites are powerful weapons in the fight against deforestation, overfishing and plastic waste. But there are downsides too, to the recent huge increase in the number of satellites orbiting the Earth. In RESET's upcoming event at the re:publica conference 2021, we'll be taking a closer look at projects using satellites for the good of the planet, and discussing a whole range of different solutions for sustainable space travel.
NASA scientists will be teaming up with epidemiologists in the agency’s first health-focused mission. With satellite data, they’ll find out how air pollution affects health in cities around the world.
Munich-based start-up Ororatech uses nanosatellites to collect and aggregate images to warn of forest fires worldwide.
A decade ago, it would have been impossible to create an accurate picture of the world's fisheries. But advances in satellite technology, cloud computing and machine learning have made it possible.
