Founded​ ​in​ ​2010​ ​by​ ​a​ ​team​ ​of​ ​ex-NASA​ ​scientists, ​Planet​ ​is​ ​driven​ ​by​ ​a​ ​mission​ ​to​ ​image​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​Earth every​ ​day, ​and​ ​make​ ​Earth’s​ ​changes​ ​visible, ​​accessible​ ​and​ ​actionable.

Planet​ ​started​ ​as​ ​a​ ​small​ ​team​ ​of​ ​physicists, ​aerospace​ ​and​ ​mechanical​ ​engineers​ ​in​ ​a​ ​garage, ​using​ ​the cubesat​ ​form-factor​ ​to​ ​inform​ ​the​ ​first​ ​designs​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Dove​ ​satellite. ​Just​ ​three​ ​years​ ​after​ ​their​ ​first​ ​satellite entered​ ​space, ​Planet​ ​now​ ​operates​ ​the​ ​largest​ ​constellation​ ​of​ ​Earth-imaging​ ​satellites…ever.

Their​ ​satellites​ ​are​ ​collecting​ ​a​ ​radical​ ​new​ ​data​ ​set​ ​with​ ​endless,​ ​real-world​ ​applications.​ ​Whether​ ​one is measuring​ ​agricultural​ ​yields,​ ​monitoring​ ​natural​ ​resources,​ ​or​ ​aiding​ ​first​ ​responders​ ​after​ ​natural​ ​disasters, Planet’s​ ​data​ ​is​ ​here​ ​to​ ​lend​ ​businesses​ ​and​ ​humanitarian​ ​organisations​ ​a​ ​helping​ ​hand.​ ​Planet​ ​believes​ ​timely, global​ ​imagery​ ​will​ ​empower​ ​informed,​ ​deliberate​ ​and​ ​meaningful​ ​stewardship​ ​of​ ​our​ ​planet.
