Who is ready for some science fiction weekend reading? Lightless by C.A. Higgins is not a light read but the start of a three-book trilogy that follows the story of a military spacecraft that rules Earth and the solar system. #HappyFriday #HappyReading #WSW2020 https://t.co/agSL4E4agY
Take a look at what our Head of Launch, Robin has to say about satellites in light of #WorldSpaceWeek. Satellites are extremely important: we rely on them daily and they also provide data that allows us to work towards a sustainable future! https://t.co/W74g9HCwy5 #WSW2020 https://t.co/bW8TI06ubS
Utilising Satellite Technology for Wildlife Conservation
High-resolution remote sensing images have provided conservationists and ecologists with the ability to accurately monitor illegal mining, to monitor wildlife populations, to rapidly detect deforestation activities and other alterations being made to the landscape. Earth imagery provided by satellites is collected frequently, globally, and at an increasingly higher quality.
Derek, our Operations Manager was the one that recommended this book!
Today’s book recommendation brought to you by Skyrora during #WorldSpaceWeek is The Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov. This science fiction novel features the man vs technology conflict, all the while following the trail of an exciting murder mystery! #WSW2020 #sciencefiction https://t.co/Trs8Lu0gRi
Our team have been working hard on an activity pack explaining the benefits and demonstrating the importance of satellites. Please feel free to share these materials amongst your local schools. 🛰️💙 Click here for more information: https://t.co/Qjv7e40GNl #WSW2020 #Satellites https://t.co/gZTgeZfQRV
