    • GOCE Gravity Model Released (Red Orbit)- June 29, 2010
    • Europe’s GOCE satellite has produced one of the most unique views of the Earth that we have ever seen. The colorful new map produced by the satellite depicts the influence the pull of gravity has around the world. Known as a geoid -- a mathematical figure of the Earth through gravitational calculations -- it essentially defines where the level surface is on our planet. It shows us which way is “up” and which way is “down”. The GOCE satellite flies so low in orbit that it comes very clo... More...
