Earth from Space - Powered by ESA
In this unique and interactive exhibition, you’ll see Earth as you’ve never seen it before: through satellites’ eyes. Use real satellite data to investigate changes in land, water, ice and air, projected onto a large globe. Zoom in with our touch table. You'll discover the fastest-flowing glacier in the world, new islands near Dubai, deforestation in the Amazon Forest and more. And explore the future of the Netherlands with our elevation model. What would this country look like if there were no dikes? Or when the sea level rises? Satellites provide answers from space – powered by ESA – exclusively at Space Expo Noordwijk.
