Our Mission

Seeing the Earth from above provides us with a unique and beautiful perspective. It also enables us to see our world in a different context and identify changes that may be taking place on local to global scales. Only through understanding what we see can we ensure a sustainable future.

That is our mission: To promote the understanding of the Earth through science, observations, and education.
