The European Space Agency, ESA, builds and launches environmental satellites supposed to monitor the environment on Earth. However, this activity, intended to promote what is best for Mother Earth, leaves behind new kinds of pollution in the form of emission from the launcher in the atmosphere, fragments from the upper stage of the launcher in […]

Credit figure: Alexandre Szames, Antigravité, Paris Space rubbish and inactive and outdated (dead) satellites are an increasing threat for satellites in the most used altitudes. The only real way to prevent the accumulation of space debris is to wait for the time they will be caught up by the atmosphere and burn up. The […]

Generally speaking, it is a fair assumption that the sun is a blessing for Mother Earth and without this source of light and heat no life would have exited here. For most people there are few serious dangers when it comes to the sun, because through generations and increased solar research humans adjusted. Having said […]
Developing, building and launching satellites is only a small part of the job. Operating satellites in space is another, and most certainly not always a routine job. Not all satellites function perfectly during their expected life span; some have different lacks during launch, some are in a wrong orbit, some stop functioning before the end […]
Due to the launch of three new earth observation satellites this summer, European meteorologists will gain access to better weather forecasts, in addition to improved knowledge about the physical phenomena at Earth
