The story of a trailblazing team from Canada, on a mission to combat climate change, who are changing the way we see the world. Over the coming months, you’ll hear about high-tech and high-drama, big business and cutting-edge science. Above all, you’ll get to know a group of people pushing the envelope, fighting the odds and trying to make a difference.
The Data Behind Climate Science
Introducing our new podcast ‘shorts’ where we speak with leading experts in their fields. As GHGSat signs a Third Party Mission initiative with the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency to share 5% of Iris’ data with the scientific community, we talk to Claus Zehner, Mission Manager for the European Space Agency’s atmospheric monitoring mission “Sentinel-5P”, about why we need to track greenhouse gases from space, how small companies like GHGSat are working alongside large Government initiatives to share data, combine intelligence and create new applications to tackle climate change, and Claus shares some of the recent developments in the Sentinel-5P mission.
We have liftoff: Small satellites, big feats
The successful launch of Iris aboard VV16 is a game-changer. Host Alexander Milas sat down with GHGSat founder Stephane Germaine, engineer Laura Bradbury, and Sir Martin Sweeting – a true pioneer in the field of constellation technology who gave us his view on what these developments mean for GHGSat and the world of climate emissions monitoring.
Hunting greenhouse gas emissions
Host Alexander Milas talks to GHGSat’s Jean-Francois Gauthier about hunting greenhouse gas emissions, why a small spaceship called Iris means so much to them, and the impact of the pandemic. Also, we hear from Andrea Preve, Program Manager for the Vega VV16 mission, about life launching rockets from the equator and returning to work during a pandemic, and from Adina Gillespie, also from GHGSat, on the little-seen emotional side of the space business.
