Using space imagery can help guide relief efforts to critical areas during a natural disaster.
Meteor impacts are an inevitable part of being a rocky planet in space. The craters they leave behind are a window into the tumultuous history of Earth.
From space to the outback, meteorite-tracking tools are building the knowledge we need to prepare for a future asteroid impact.
The United States Geological Survey has a vast collection of satellite images capturing breathtaking geological features of our planet. As a geologist, I’ve picked eight of the most fascinating.
Private satellite companies have boomed in recent years, and many experts have wondered what role they would play in a conflict. They have proved to be invaluable to Ukraine in recent months.
Fires in arid Australia are extensive, largely unmanaged, often destructive and significantly under-reported.
Our data provides a common benchmark unbiased by reporting from companies or governments.
Scientists are building a pollen forecasting model using meteorology, botany, pollen count numbers and satellite imagery to help people plan ahead.
Advanced techniques allowed our research team to build an open database of billions of individual trees and challenge some common perceptions about vegetation in arid and semi-arid zones.
Satellites, space stations and astronauts, aviation, GPS, power grids and more can be affected.
We used satellite images to study the life cycles of mangrove forests in the Northern Territory, Queensland, and New South Wales — and found a surprising degree of variation.
The dingo fence is the longest fence in the world. The environment looks almost identical on either side — until you view it from space.
Satellites impact our lives in many different ways, and some of these may surprise you.
Artificial intelligence can help us venture further in space.

India may land on the Moon this coming year, while Nasa will launch its new, powerful rocket farther into space than any other human rated spacecraft.
New research published in the journal Nature reveals that more than 1.2 million flow barriers exist on European rivers and that approximately 10% are obsolete.
In South African cities there’s an uneven distribution of trees, greenery and parks across racial and income geographies.
Flaring, or burning, waste gas from energy production has sharply increased over the past decade. It wastes usable fuel, pollutes the air, and helps drive climate change.
Supercomputers in Canberra and Perth power the analysis and modelling that decision-makers rely on in national crises.
