Pitcture-perfect planet: observing the Earth from hundreds of satellites
Dr Marshall will share his entrepreneurial journey from Oxford to NASA to a garage in California where he started Planet with two friends – their mission to use space to help life on earth. Today, Planet serves images to users and customers all over the world, including science agencies, universities, agriculture companies, non-profits, news organisations, governments and many more. In this lecture, Dr Marshall will share examples from university researchers who are using Planet’s earth imagery to better understand our changing planet, and he will invite students to apply for Planet’s education and research programme.
