“The nation’s Earth observing capability from space is beginning to wane as older missions fail and are not replaced,” according to a new National Research Council report, released May 2 as an update to a 2007 decadal report on Earth-observing capabilities.   

Is this an opportunity for crowd sourced sats?
We've seen hidef cameras go up on weather balloons. Could one be made space worthy in a micro-sat?
