Photographing the Planet Every Day From 143 Satellites
on 14 February 2017
San Francisco-based start-up Planet just launched 88 small satellites in a record-breaking take-off from India (among a total of 103 satellites on a PSLV rocket). If all goes according to plan, Planet will begin photographing Earth every single day from their entire roster of 143 satellites, which move north to south scanning the globe. This would position Planet as the premiere provider of satellite image data. Their depth of information will also include historic date from US Landsat satellites and European Sentinel satellites, building an unparalleled glimpse at our the Earth's developments.
