    Saving lives from space

    From Hurricane Katrina to the Japanese tsunami – satellite images are increasingly playing an important role during rescue efforts after natural or man-made disasters. The images, often taken minutes after devastation has occurred, help pinpoint people and places at risk.

    A formal system of sharing information by space agencies was agreed in 1999, with the creation of the Disasters Charter. Since then, the charter has helped provide data for more than 300 disasters, in more than 100 countries.

    Here – to mark World Space Week 2012 – Dr Alice Bunn from the UK Space Agency looks at how the images, taken many hundreds of miles above the planet, are being used to save lives.

    Peter,

    Thanks for the link to Fully Charged. I spotted their YouTUbe channel and very much enjoyed seeing the city of the future, Masdar City, Abu Dhabi

    I pretty much marvel at how the efforts of 20,000 slave laborers from the Indian Subcontinent and East Asia can be so easily air-brushed out of the picture, but I guess that’s the game when it comes to promoting the elite’s vision of the future.

    More on Masdar City from the perspective of the critic of one of the planet’s most voracious nation states when it comes to carbon emissions per person:
