The story of our mission. We’re extremely grateful to Tommy Jordan of Fade to Black Productions for putting this together for us.
The below NASA video shows a rapid decline in Arctic Sea ice over the last 35 years. In the first week of January 1988, over 1.2 million square miles were covered by sea ice four years of age or older, compared with just over 44,000 square miles in the same week in 2019.
The Arctic's oldest ice is vanishing. This animation, created by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, tracks the relative amount of ice of different ages from 1990 through early November 2016. Seasonal ice is darkest blue. Ice that is nine or more years old is white.
Fly over our Arctic test site thanks to our drone, Maverick. He’s been helping us capture views by flying high enough to see the Arctic lake, but low enough to fly below the clouds that make satellite imagery of the area impossible.
HBO’s VICE joined our team in the Arctic to watch us deploy our reflective microspheres, and talk about how we scale.
