The European Space Agency has developed a new land data processor to create maps of land deformation. Called Wide Area Processor (WAP), the processes uses radar data to measure millimeter terrain deformations. Changes in the surface height of a landscape occur over time. Sinking of the earth can happen as a result of mining, earthquakes, or natural gas extraction. [...]
The ESA has recently released a small spin-off company that is going to help drivers around the world stay a little bit safer with the help of space age technology. EstrellaSat’s job is to create long-distance monitoring technology specifically designed to help predict the movements of drivers who work carting mine loads to and from [...]
Up until recently, seismometers have been a strictly Earth-bound devices, diligently tracking each and every change in the Earth’s surface due to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tectonic plates shifting around. For the first time in the history of seismology, a device been able to capture the noise of vibrations caused by an earthquake from space. [...]
The ESA, also known as the European Space Agency, has managed to do a lot of amazing feats in the field of space technology. They have created the Proba-1 and Proba-2 satellites, and their latest microsatellite, the Proba-V, is currently undergoing testing before its launch into space. The Proba-V is the ESA’s latest technological endeavor [...]
