Climate, ESA and NASA join forces

ESA and NASA join forces in the fight against climate change and announce a strategic partnership to empower earth sciences. The goal of NASA and ESA is to ensure that the data from Earth observation satellites are used to the best, deepen the science and thus bring maximum benefit to humanity. The partnership was formalized by the general manager of ESA, Josef Aschbacher, and by the administrator of NASA, Bill Nelson, through the signing of a declaration of intent. The agreement aims to pave the way to lead a global response to climate change, by monitoring the Earth and its environment with their combined efforts in Earth science observations, research and applications. “Climate change is a global challenge that requires action: now,” said NASA administrator Bill Nelson. “NASA and ESA – he said – are leading the way in space, building an unprecedented strategic partnership in the Earth sciences. This agreement will set the standard for future international collaboration, providing the information so essential to address the challenges posed by climate change and helping to answer and address the most pressing questions in earth sciences for the benefit of the United States, Europe and the world. ”
