From mapping the planet to tracking climate change, Japan's Daichi-2 satellite is making a huge contribution when it comes to observing the Earth.

In addition to monitoring melting Arctic Sea ice, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's satellite is able to check on land deformities, vegetation and the health of forests around the world, in all weather conditions, day and night.
