Le Gall Calls for More Satellites to Help Fight Climate Change

[Via Satellite 05-40-2016] Satellites will play a vital role in ensuring the agreements reached last year at the COP21 Paris Climate Conference are followed through, but more are needed, according to Jean Yves Le Gall, president of the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the French space agency. Speaking April 29 at the Washington Space Business Roundtable, Le Gall said that the COP21 conference, which he regarded as perhaps the most momentous accomplishment of the decade, drove home the realization to many world leaders that satellites are an inimitable resource in the fight against anthropogenic global warming.

Belarus to add BKA-2 remote sensing satellite in 2019

Belarus: Belarus will add its second remote sensing satellite, BKA-2 in the Earth orbit in 2019, said Sergei Zolotoi, Chief Designer of the Belarusian space system for the remote sensing of the Earth, Director of the enterprise Geoinformation Systems of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. Sergei Zolotoi told this to a website in an interview. And this sounds convincing as it takes 3-4 years to create a satellite.
