NASA recently reported that they can track and pinpoint CO2 emissions from space, utilizing a combination of satellite information and measurements made from the International Space Station. Space-based observations give humans greater ability to track sources of carbon dioxide. With this news, Maps101 is turning our attention beyond Earth—toward outer space. Mankind’s connection to objects in space began with the Apollo landing on the moon. Human interest in the stars, however, began perhaps as early as the first civilizations, when the stars were clearly visible in the night sky everywhere. Even with new technology, satellites, launches, cameras, and missions, there is much to explore about space. Let’s take a look at outer space with Maps101.
