Mysterious and colorful China

22 May 2018

In April 2013, China launched its first satellite capable of capturing high-resolution images into space. Not so long ago, it became known that with the help of "Gaofen-1", the country's authorities not only monitor potential natural disasters, but also identify illegal border crossings and identify farmers who grow marijuana. At the same time, the Chinese national space administration has posted 10 detailed satellite images from "Gaofen-1", obtained with the help of spectral imaging.
