    Rabat – Morocco is set to launch its first reconnaissance satellite on November 8 while another is due to follow in 2018, according to the Spanish media outlet El Pais.

    The move has Spain worried for several reasons, including the fact that the satellite will likely put an end to the edge Spain has over Morocco.

    Citing military experts, El Pais revealed that Madrid is worried its technological advantage will come to an end at a time when there are still some contentious issues between Morocco and Spain despite the “friendly relations” between the two.Read more

    A new NASA study provides space-based evidence that Earth’s tropical regions were the cause of the largest annual increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration seen in at least 2,000 years.

    Scientists suspected the 2015-16 El Nino — one of the largest on record — was responsible, but exactly how has been a subject of ongoing research. Analyzing the first 28 months of data from NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite, researchers conclude impacts of El Nino-related heat and drought occurring in tropical regions of South America, Africa and Indonesia were responsible for the record spike in global carbon dioxide.Read More...

    Over the course of a year, ESA collected huge amounts of satellite data to create the first high-res image of the African continent.

    From space, Africa appears like a rich tapestry of wildly different environments ranging from the barren dunes of northern Africa, to the dense, green jungles of its heartland.

    Now this view can be seen here on Earth thanks to the efforts of the European Space Agency (ESA), which has spent the past year collating satellite data to create the highest resolution image of the continent to date.Read more...H
