SPIE Remote Sensing
SPIE Remote Sensing 2014 is an important European conference focused on giving international researchers and scientists access to the most recent satellite-based imaging systems and the data generated by them, as well as a way to share that information with peers within science, government, and industry while furthering that impact world-wide.
Review all that happened at this year's conference in Amsterdam.

Dr Natalie Starkey shows Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock particles of dust from a comet's tail and reveals what it tells us about the Solar System. This is a preview of some of the things that the ESA hopes to learn from its Rosetta probe of the comet it has been chasing across the solar system for ten years.
