Climate emergency: Space superpowers to the rescue

Every newspaper report about what could be the highest temperature ever reliably recorded on Earth - 130F (54.4C) in Death Valley National Park, California.

While this recording is being verified by the US National Weather Service, policy makers and governments are moving into action to preserve this “Spaceship Earth”[1] of ours by tackling the “Climate emergency”[2].

Come and discover how the superpowers of Space applications and technologies are and will be at service for the humankind through several fireside chats and interviews of Space entrepreneurs and innovators with a great purpose in mind: save Spaceship earth.

We are hosting “globe readers” like Kayrros, capable of spotting methane polluters from over 700 km altitude, water “dowsers” that do not need a stick to find water like DryGro and climate scientists that think you cannot manage climate without measuring [3] from Space.

About the organisers:

SpaceBrains is a not for profit organisation supported by the European Space Agency aiming to be the beacon for New Space daring ideas. SpaceBrains will be encouraging the best minds, developing young talent and fostering the space leaders of the future.
