Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.

― William S. Burroughs

I've got a hobby-interest in remote sensing (satellite imagery). Over the past couple of days, I've been playing around with data from the ESA's Sentinel-1 mission. The ESA (being cool and European Union-y) makes most of the data from Sentinel series of satellites freely accessible to the public, and provides some decent software for processing and analysing the data.

Sentinel-1 is a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite. I don't fully understand the physics behind SAR, but it's basically an active radar measurement of the ground track the satellite passes over. Different surfaces give different sorts of radar returns (measured as a change in polarisation), and so SAR can be used to classify different terrains (crops, forests, grasslands, rock, etc), like in the false-colour image of Flevoland I've attached. Resolution is moderate: for Sentinel-1, each pixel ends up being about 4x4 m on the ground.

Apologies before hand- as this podcast on crypto is hosted by someone who sounds as if he is struggling to put 5 words together (ME). Or just come across as merely coherent. But its my first podcast- The topic is on Elastos- the coming blockchain internet. Put in a good word for Mastodon. wmblockchain.podbean.com/

Girl Loses NASA Internship Over Insult to ‘October Sky’ Legend—He’s Still Helping Her - should have stayed fired imo - gotta have standards. If not enforced, they're not worth anything. Talk about setting the bar low. I wouldn't use this language period.
