Nanosatellites are becoming mainstream up in space
Issued on: Modified:
They've been helping us understand our planet and have enabled worldwide communications for decades. Currently, there are approximately 1,886 artificial satellites orbiting the Earth. In this edition, we tell you everything you need to know about satellites and the different missions they can carry out in space. From the study of exoplanets to communication purposes, they are also helping us understand how earthly processes work.
Plus, in Test 24, we take a look at biodegradable material used in certain objects. This as the 2018 Global E-waste report claims that nearly 50 million metric tons of e-waste were generated last year - the equivalent of around 5,000 Eiffel Towers.
