UK to open Earth observation hub


www.bbc.co.uk

Science minister David Willetts is to announce a new UK centre for monitoring the Earth from space.

The Earth observation hub will focus on acquiring environmental data, such as information on deforestation and the impact of climate change.

The hub will be based at the International Space Innovation Centre (ISIC) at Harwell in Oxfordshire, which will open in April 2011.

The aim is to bring together UK expertise in Earth observation.

The hub will also be used as a flight operations centre for controlling satellites.

Well i think that this is fascinating i've always wanted to view the earth from that angle in real-time, I just hope that it will be available to the public i doubt it, but it would make my day.

What do you all think of this. Could it be turned into a tourist attraction.

Its Definetely a Step Foward, cant wait to see what else is in news regarding this kind of things.
