Earth Observation data is information about Earth’s physical, chemical and biological systems, often coming from satellites. The EU-funded openEO project developed a new interface to help users access, process and compare data from different providers. This is an important step towards allowing communication between platforms from different providers, benefiting researchers and citizens.
How many stars in the Milky Way have at least one planet similar to Earth? A rocky planet that is capable of sustaining liquid water on its surface? More than one in five, say EU-funded researchers who shed new light on the nature of terrestrial exoplanets, boosting Europe's contribution to the advancement of astrophysics.
