204 – Earth Observation at Planet Labs
Guest: Ignacio Zuleta, Creon Levit Host: Markus Voelter Shownoter: Kolja Dummann
Planet Labs is building small, inexpensive satellites, mostly from consumer-style components, for large-scale, continuous earth observation purposes. As a silicon valley startup, they pride themselves in doing things differently than then “big aerospace companies”. In this episode, I am talking with Ignacio Zuleta and Creon Levit about small satellites, satellite constellations, phones, optics and earth observation.
