Bill Gates invests in plan to cover Earth in video feed satellites
Bill Gates invests in plan to cover Earth in video feed satellites. An aerospace company that hopes to launch a network of satellites to provide a continuous live feed of the whole of Earth has been backed by Microsoft founder Bill Gates. EarthNow has plans to launch a fleet of advanced imaging satellites into orbit above the Earth, which will then provide a feed of photos and video as the world itself changes through the seasons and as major natural events occur. It also says its feeds could be used to track whale migration and to help the media in telling stories as well as be used to make “smart cities” become more efficient. As well as backing from Gates, Japanese tech giant Softbank and aviation company Airbus are also investing in the firm.
