The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre released an image that shows the wildfires in California

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) released an image captured from space by KhalifaSat, which shows the wildfires burning through Northern and Central California in the United States of America.



These are some of the most massive wildfires in the history of California with firefighters and crews trying their best to bring it under control.


KhalifaSat was fully developed at MBRSC facilities by Emirati engineers and was launched to space in October 2018. It has five patents and seven space innovations, making it the most advanced satellite of its category in the world. KhalifaSat provides images with specifications that meet the highest international standards in space images.


These high-resolution, detailed images help organisations in government, and private sectors get accurate data which allow them to monitor environmental changes, detect the effects of global warming, ensure responsible urban planning and management, and aid relief efforts at times of natural disasters. This will contribute to achieving sustainable development goals and improve the quality of life.
