Saving the world from orbit: Is a methane-sniffing satellite built in Colorado the key to fighting climate change?
Payne Institute Faculty Fellow James Crompton contributes to this article about how an ambitious quest to cut the most potent greenhouse gas emissions on earth is taking an environmental group to space. The idea, first outlined in a 2018 TED Talk by is taking shape in the clean rooms of two Colorado aerospace companies. It’s a project that brought engineers back from retirement to work on it and fired up the imaginations of industry leaders and environmental activists who believe a satellite with the ability to reveal pollution leaks and capture emissions measurements from space will spark rapid changes on Earth.
