Join us for a discussion with Dr Will Marshall, co-founder and CEO of Planet and alumnus of Oxford's Department of Physics and Wadham College. Planet is a space company that operates the largest-ever constellation of earth imaging satellites – more than 150 – that take pictures of the globe on a daily basis.

Dr Marshall will share his entrepreneurial journey from Oxford to NASA to a garage in California where he started Planet with two friends - their mission to use space to help life on earth. Today, Planet serves images to users and customers all over the world, including science agencies, universities, agriculture companies, non-profits, news organisations, governments and many more. In this lecture, Dr Marshall will share examples from university researchers who are using Planet’s earth imagery to better understand our changing planet, and he will invite students to apply for Planet’s education and research programme.
