Many of the landmines and bombs dropped in Cambodia during the Vietnam War remain unexploded, which is a huge problem that us not easily solved for those tasked with clearing them away. Scientists have developed a new AI-powered tool that could make things a lot easier, with an ability to detect bomb craters through satellite imagery with great accuracy and therefore help reveal where the undeton
DARPA has entered into a partnership with Northrop Grumman subsidiary Space Logistics LLC to develop robotic technologies for servicing and extending the service lives of orbital satellites. Based on the Mission Extension Vehicle-1 (MEV-1), which recently docked with a communication satellite in geosynchronous orbit, the technology will be used by the agency's Robotic Servicing of Geosynchronous
The introduction of 26,000 new megaconstellation satellites could have a significant effect on ground-based astronomy, according to a new study commissioned by the European Southern Observatory. Twice as many satellites could be visible to the naked eye in the coming years, as companies like SpaceX, OneWeb and Amazon pursue their ambitious orbital agendas.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceT
whether clinging onto façades or proliferating on rooftops, the dishes add another layer to the existing urban fabric. The post satellite dishes in north african cities, photographed by manuel alvarez diestro appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
The Guinness Book of World Records has awarded JAXA the record for the lowest altitude by an Earth observation satellite. During its mission from 2017 to 2019, the Super Low Altitude Test Satellite reached a suitably super-low altitude of 167.4 km.
ESA has successfully launched its Cheops telescope on a mission to make detailed follow-up studies of distant exoplanets discovered by earlier space-faring telescopes, such as Kepler and TESS.
Samsung’s campaign to promote its new Galaxy S10 5G smartphone came down to Earth with a crash this week when the high-altitude weather balloon central to the #SpaceSelfie promotion dropped out of the sky and was left dangling from a tree in Michigan.The company had set up a microsite that allowed fans to post their selfies to a Galaxy S10 5G floating at the edge of the atmosphere. A picture of t
It's not entirely news that the Earth's ice budget is under threat from a warming climate, but a new study has looked into just how fast that's happening. Using recently declassified spy satellite photos, researchers found that compared to the last quarter of the 20th century, Himalayan glaciers have been melting twice as fast this century. In a rare piece of good news, a separate study ha
If you were shooting astrophotography over the past couple of nights and noticed a strange line of bright dots traveling across the sky, you might have spotted SpaceX’s Starlink satellites. That’s what Marco Langbroek caught on camera yesterday in the video above.SpaceX’s Starlink is a project to put a constellation of 12,000 satellites in three orbital shells around Earth by th
With the Earth in a state of flux at the moment, we need to keep a particularly close eye on Antarctica. Plenty of satellites are whizzing overhead to do just that, and now a new study has examined 25 years of data they've collected to get a sense of the extent of ice loss across Antarctica. According to the findings, warming waters have destabilized as much as a quarter of the glacier ice is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
