TerraSAR-X image of the month: The International Space Station (ISS)
On 13 March 2008, the International Space Station (ISS) passed across the field-of-view of Germany’s remote sensing satellite, TerraSAR-X, at a distance of 195 kilometres (122 miles) with a relative speed of 34,540 kilometres per hour (over 22,000 mph). The encounter lasted for about three seconds, but this brief moment was long enough for the synthetic aperture radar on TerraSAR-X to acquire an image of the ISS.
