The Japanese technology company Canon presented to the public an unusual interactive tool that uses a microsatellite equipped with a high-resolution camera to take images from space. Have you tried it yet?

It is the CE-SAT-1 satellite, manufactured by Canon and launched into orbit in June 2017. The probe is equipped with an EOS 5D Mark III reflex camera complemented by a 40-centimeter Cassegrain telescope. It has a maximum resolution of 36 inches within a 4.8 to 3.2 kilometer frame. For comparison, the world’s highest resolution satellite, WorldView-4, can capture images with a resolution of up to 12 inches.

On the interactive website, any user can put Canon’s curious tool to the test and take satellite images of different parts of the world, from Antarctica to the Bahamas.

Because the CE-SAT-1 moves at a speed of more than 27,000 kilometers per hour and circles the Earth in less than 2 hours, it would be impossible to capture satellite images in real-time, so the Japanese company opted for creating a virtual simulation of the imaging. To date, the project map has a total of nine geographic locations. However, the list may be extended in the future.
