ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION.
The shortest wavelengths are gamma rays. The longest are radio waves, ranging from 100s to 10-thousand centimetres from peak to peak. The distance between peaks of gamma rays are billionths/millionths of centimetres. Between the two extremes lie X-rays, ultra violet, visible, infrared and microwaves.

A history of artificial satellites, by Helen Gavaghan

This is the first history of telecommunication, meteorological and navigation satellites, and is the story of scientific visionaries who created precursors of multi-billion dollar industries. Each technology can trace a history to the International Geophysical Year of 1957-1958. The stories take place the 1950s and early 1960s.

Career overview

History of EUMETSAT

I am a content provider as well as publishing the work of others and my own. I work as a freelance journalist, editor, science writer, science/tech historian and content consultancy provider. I have undertaken science writing in support of public relations.

GO TO TESTIMONIALS


Read, for example, the first official history of EUMETSAT, written by me under contract as the organisation's history consultant and author, with privileged access to their confidential archives.

The book is about the early European history of meteorological & climate monitoring satellites. I explore the emergence of EUMETSAT from the European Space Agency, and EUMETSAT's adoption of climate monitoring within a rewritten international convention. The establishment of facilities around Europe for key meteorological tasks was critical to the IGO's political strength.
