Escape from the International Space Station

Description: At SENSE our scientists use Earth Observation information collected from satellites to study the earth and try to understand why changes might be happening. There are thousands of satellites flying across the earth collecting lots and lots of data and we are using this to answer lots of important questions about our environment.

For example,

  • Why are larger sections of the Antarctic glacier breaking off and forming icebergs?
  • What happens to the forests around a volcano after it erupts?
  • How can looking at how crops are grown now help us plan for more efficient production in the future?
  • Why do large amounts of brown smelly seaweed appear in the Atlantic ocean?

Don't forget to book your place!
