Satellite Navigation Monitors Water Supplies

Water conservation is a growing concern globally, and particularly for farmers in the United States, where decades of irrigating huge fields has depleted vital resources of fresh surface water and groundwater. To help alleviate this problem, a European Space Agency (ESA) spin-off that hopes to help preserve water supplies while guaranteeing crop irrigation is now

Swarm Satellites Help Scientists Understand Earth’s Magnetic Field

Earth’s magnetic field is like a huge cocoon, protecting the planet from cosmic radiation and charged particles found in solar wind. European Space Agency (ESA) Swarm satellites are recording details about one of the most difficult to observe layers of Earth’s magnetic field—as well as the magnetic history imprinted on Earth’s crust. Most of Earth’s
