Micro-Satellites Offer a Fresh View of NYS Agriculture
The seeds of space exploration are being planted in several New York state vineyards. They’ve also been attached to dairy cows. And they may be showing up at a dog park near you.
Doctoral student Hunter Adams is deploying thumbnail-size satellites to monitor environmental conditions as a dry run for using the technology for future space research. At the same time, he is harvesting valuable data that will help growers make more informed decisions about growing crops and caring for animals.
