In this modern world our efforts in space are as vital to our military efforts as the Army, Navy & Airforces of the world. So much of our technology on earth is dependent on Satellites.

For the United States, maintaining a leadership role in space is an essential component of national security, providing the US and our allies “unprecedented advantages in national decision-making, military operations, and homeland security,” in the words of the National Security Space Strategy. National security in this sense includes US foreign relations and protection of broad national interests, in addition to national defense. NASA is essential for national security, not only because of its role in developing new space capabilities and technologies, but also because it is explicitly excluded from military activity by the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958. Simply stated, NASA is uniquely positioned to facilitate international collaboration on peaceful uses of space in ways the military cannot.

It is therefore appropriate that we have here at MI.Net a dedicated forum to show off photos and discuss the topic in more depth.

I hope you all enjoy this forum

The first satellite designed & built completely in Brazil, called Amazonia-1, has been placed in orbit onboard an Indian rocket (PSLV-C51 commercial mission) yesterday. The satellite is designed to assist in tracking deforestation of the Amazon region.
