There are just two spacecraft left to complete this mission so our partners at NASA have been actively collecting, processing, and launching new images.
Dove’s mission includes tracking the movement of planets and the stars to study the evolution of our own Solar System, among other things.
The satellite is an interplanetary imaging machine that’s the only one of its kind capable of taking a large variety of space-based and ground-based images and videos.
Dove was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in July 2009 and arrived back to earth in the same day.
The satellite is capable of taking 400 frames per minute.
These images are then returned to Earth and made into video.
The mission of this mission is to look back at Earth’s past.
To do this, the satellite observes itself in motion with an array of filters which allows it to capture the many different points on Earth that are changing.
These points are then used to create a computer image in order to track the change in gravity, temperature, chemical processes, and physical processes within the planet as a whole.
At one time, the spacecraft also was in orbit around the Moon and is also expected to study its composition, composition and the origin of our Solar System.
The Dove satellite is built from a composite of the first four SES-11 components, which are in low orbit and need their own solar panels.
The four elements have been in space since mid-2014 carrying more than 5,200 kilograms of experiments and scientific instruments, the company said.
Advertisement The mission is in its third flight after three successful flybys and two other flybys by spacecraft in a single mission.
The primary instrument is a wide-angle infrared imager that imaged the surface under the sun and under the sun, and the secondary one measures temperatures and radiation from a variety of sources, says Airbus Defense and Space, the company responsible for the craft.
“We’ve already taken some of these data sets down to space and have seen some interesting results”Dave Thompson of NASA Headquarters.
In the short term, Dove will stay in orbit for 18 months before moving to high orbit at a point where it will fly higher and higher and will be able to collect and analyse more data, according to Airbus.
