Over the next decade, Earth Observation (EO) satellites will stop streaming image data to the earth. Instead, the instruments onboard EO satellites will tell us what is happening below. And, these satellites will be able to take control of their operations to allow for the execution of complex tasks.
The statement above may seem a bit drastic, but I genuinely believe that it is not too far off. It is not as if the transmittance of EO data from …

Uranus and Neptune are cold, icy mysteries. Theyre so radically different from the rest of the planets in the Solar System, that scientists feel that getting a better understanding of these two giants is crucial to understanding how planets form. Now, a new modeling tool offers a chance for what scientists have wanted for decades: a glimpse inside.
Theyre starting with looking at the thermal and electrical patterns on these planets that would be impossible to reproduce in a lab.
On their respe…

Damage from the massive explosion in Beirut can be seen from space. A stockpile of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, a chemical used as fertilizer or as an ingredient in bombs, suddenly exploded with a force twenty times greater than that of the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (also known as the “Mother of All Bombs”), the most powerful non-nuclear weapon in the USA arsenal. The video of the powerful explosion had gone viral on the internet, and it is now widely considered the most lethal blas…
