Txitama no Xiya dazzles!


IBAP: 2 Mars, 2009 (11 Ventôse CCXVII)

ATOE (CNEL & JAXA) released photos today from high above showing the view of the ground as Txitama no Xiya sees it, high, high above. Jean-Louis Cattin spoke with this reporter from his office near Paris-sur-Mizouri. “We’re very pleased with results. The resolution of the photographs is incredibly precise, and what’s even better is that we don’t have to worry so much about the maintenance costs as we do with a statellite, or interference from the weather itself.”

Mr. Cattin showed some of the coasts of those nations bordering the South China Sea. “Look at that resolution. You can almost see the larger fishing vessels!”
