In honor of Earth Day, today’s post is about earth observation technology—specifically, drones. You may have noticed that drones—or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)—have been surging in popularity lately. They seem to be all the buzz at industry trade shows, and it’s easy to see why—they’re just plain cool.

For those living in the U.S. of A., you’ve probably noticed in various ways how much the government shutdown affects us as citizens. It may even serve to educate some of us on how many programs are actually funded by the U.S. government. While a number of shut-down programs seem to have lesser impacts, there are many closed programs that will substantially affect considerably large numbers of people, and we hope that these programs will recommence quickly.
