About time, it's not entirely new, just public eye new.
This tech has been around since the 80's, keeping tabs on warfare situations.
But for unmanned missions to mars or other worlds, this would serve great. Find a good landing zone, or other stuff.
I don't care about skyspysats more interested in the future of Kepler-like spacecraft, get a close shot of a earth like world twenty lightyears away.
That would be something amazing.
But this is a mild millstone for technology, another species could be far ahead of us playing a spy game for earth worlds
