  • AEOLUS: ESA mission to profile Earth’s global wind patterns.
  • Aqua: NASA mission to gather data on Earth's water cycle, including evaporation, precipitation, atmospheric water vapor, soil moisture, land and sea ice, etc.
  • GRACE-FO1: NASA mission to gather data on Earth’s water movement, including ice sheets, glaciers, rivers and lakes, underground water, changes in sea level, etc.
  • Hubble Space Telescope: The most famous space telescope, studying everything from Solar System objects to the early Universe.
