Al Picozzi's insight:

With the fires going on in Arizona, this is a great site to see what effect they are having ont he landscape.  The use of satellits to see the effect and maybe even help to fight these kinds of fires can be of great advantage to the people on the ground.

Al Picozzi's insight:

The uses of this satellite is amazing.  It can show areas that were effected by forest fires, shows the building of the islands in Dubai plus can over time will show environmental effects over an area. Some additional images from the satellite and it uses can be seen here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/landsat/news/first-images-feature.html

This satellite can also be useful in fighting environmental disasters:

Amazing to see how this technology can be used in a way that can help combat harmful situations.
