US removes ban from taking detailed satellite images

  • There was a time when having detailed satellite imaging was illegal. However, that has now changed since the US government removed the ban after an appeal from a firm that has the technology to show small objects. 

    Reports suggest that Digital Globe is expected to launch a new satellite in the next two months. Moreover, Google also purchased a startup company and plans on taking full images of the planet at high resolutions. 

    It appears that not everyone approves of the change since people are worried about "national security."
