A satellite company called Capella Space just launched its platform for SAR imaging satellites that can peer through clouds and even some buildings.
Capella launched a platform allowing governmental or private customers to request images of anything in the world — a capability that will only get more powerful with the deployment of six additional satellites next year. Is that creepy from a privacy point of view? Sure. But company says that it also plugs numerous holes in the ways scientists and government agencies are currently able to monitor the planet.
