A database of observation satellites
« on: 11/27/2017 09:48 PM »
I struggled to know where to post this but as itís by one of our own forum members I thought it worth drawing attention to. I apologise if its author has already posted it here and Iíve missed it in my search.

The resource can be found on the link below.

Thank you Star One! I did not post it here yet, I agree it's not easy to find a category for it. It's not fully commercial since government launches are included, and probably not historical enough for the history section, so this section is a good idea. I hope it will be useful for people interested in earth observation.

I found it interesting so thanks for doing it. Would it be rude to ask you how long it took to compile?

Around a weekend of browsing gunter's space page and eoportal for the initial revision, now it's just a matter of adding data for new launches.

I had an image in my mind of you slaving away for months on it.
