Space Mobilized for Japan

Space mobilized for Japan

Japan is well prepared for disasters, but this combined earthquake and tsunami is too much even for them. The international community has agreed to make their earth observation satellites available to governments in needs, like Japan right now, through the International Charter Space and Major Disasters. There will be satellite images based on various techniques available soon, also to the public. Right now, it is the specialist and crisis teams who use them.
