Satellite Eye for Galathea 3 is a project funded by Egmont Fonden and the participating institutes – Risø DTU, DTU Space, ESA Eduspace, Niels Bohr Institute at University of Copenhagen, GRAS and DMI - in the period 2006 to 2008. During the Galathea 3 expedition around 10.000 satellite images were collected along the entire route. The expedition took place from 11th August 2006 to 25th April 2007. The satellite images were shown in near-real-time on Google Earth along with near-real-time ship observations. Based on the satellite images, the ship observations and through collaboration with many Galathea 3 research projects educational material for upper secondary schools were being prepared. A total of 41 educational projects were being developed. Most of this information was published at EMU, the Danish portal for schools during 2007 in Danish and English. In addition, a satellite image with a short text was published each week at the homepage www.satelliteeye.dk . During 2007 the Satellite Eye team jointly with Nature & science prepared an educational film ‘Satellite Eye – Galathea 3 fra rummet’. This work is funded by The Danish Ministry of Education, Tips- og Lottopuljen. The film will be sent to upper secondary schools along with the Satellite Living Atlas. The latter will consist of the 40 weekly images and a series of satellite image animations that shows our living Earth from space.
