First Full Year in Orbit!

GHGSat’s first satellite, Claire, is celebrating her first anniversary! A year ago today, Claire was launched from India to her orbit high above our beautiful planet.

She has since delivered almost 1300 measurements of hundreds of sites. The images below include an early calibration measurement from the sands of the Sahara, a visible plume from a power station in the steppes of Russia, and a methane measurement from the jungles of Africa.

We celebrate the remarkable performance of a small satellite that is helping us realize big dreams.
