What if we had real-time access to everything that’s happening across the globe? Planet Labs is launching tiny satellites into space en masse to photograph our Earth at all angles, multiple times each day. 

This tech could lead to a shift in the way we monitor the health of the planet and the activities of the global population. Whereas we have previously had to wait weeks or months for photographs of specific parts of the planet, we could have instant insights into the land and environmental happenings on it. 

So, how could these satellites affect maps, surveillance, and the future of our planet’s climate? The Hard Reset Podcast hosts sit down to discuss.
