Malta and Gozo: laser-delivered view
This image of Malta and neighboring Gozo, captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-2B satellite, is one of the first set of images to be laser-delivered via Alphasat, which is in geostationary orbit 36,000 km above Earth. The high-speed delivery (just six minutes to reach a ground station) is seen as essential for applications like disaster relief efforts. Image: ESA.
