ConsenSys, a startup that develops the Ethereum ecosystem, announced the launch of an application on the Ethereum blockchain Trusat, designed to track the trajectories of satellites and combat space debris.
The app will rely on its users to track satellites in the night sky and record their coordinates. It will also show the user when and in which part of the sky to look to see a passing satellite.
“The number of satellites in earth orbit has increased 25 times. They give us access to technologies that we use on a daily basis, but satellites are in danger of colliding with space debris. TruSat is designed to create a trusted system of satellite orbits around the world — a free and accessible resource,” the statement says
Using Ethereum will allow you to create an open, Autonomous system that is resistant to unreliable data. Users will be confident that they can trust the algorithms and data stored in TrueSat.
Almost a year ago, the startup ConsenSys announced
about the acquisition of the space company Planetary Resources.
