BBCNorway resorts to ship-watching from space

Norway’s coastline is huge. The mainland’s rim stretches for more than 2,500km but if you measure it to include all the fjords and nooks and crannies, it comes out at more than 25,000km. Little wonder then that the Scandinavian nation relies heavily on satellites to help it monitor what’s going on around its territory. And it has a fascinating mission, using a nano-sat, launching in the next few days that will enable it to keep even better watch on its waters.
