A nice time lapse of the the 3 telescopes I shoot for @natgeo in the south of Spain which are surveying the sky from asteroids every night. #stars #asteroid #timelapse #future #earth #sky #deimos #satellites #telescope #night

For @natgeo I’ve been to the south of Spain to meet Joelia and Jaime, asteroids hunter. Here is how they survey the sky every night.
These 3 Telescopes, in the south of Spain, work alone in the mountain under a non-stoping stop moving and shooting loop commanded from 40 kilometers away, a stressing and intense robotic mode of operation. 
They collect around 50.000 images of the sky every night.
Those images contain stars and also distant galaxies and nebulas, but much closer asteroids and satellites too.

Jaime is an asteroid hunter in south of Spain. With his team there, he discovered more than 3000 numbered asteroids of our Solar System, several of them belonging to this near to Earth dangerous family. Among those, 2012 DA14, named "Duende", the closest to Earth flyby of an asteroid with potential threat by its size registered so far. ‘We are watching you is out’ on @natgeo this month. #future #asteroid #meteorites #

One of the biggest lettuce grower in the world using the Dutch high tech agro farming technology where compare to traditional farming, 90% less of water is used and up to 10 times the amount of lettuce is grown with the same land. No pesticides are required. This futuristic way of farming it might be the best solution to front the hunger crisis in a the next decades. #netherlands #agriculture #farming #future #greenhouse #lettuce #hunger #led

Strawberry greenhouse in the Netherlands. This might be the safest way to grow more with less. The high end technology applied to these crops make them grow up to 10 times the amount of a traditional crops. It might be the future of farming is seen here. #agriculture #farming #future #technology #hunger #famine #strawberry #fruits #netherlands

Chicken poultry facility in the Netherlands. The most advanced technology is used here in order to grow chicken without the use of any medicine. Global meat production and consumption have increased rapidly in recent decades, with harmful effects on the environment and public health as well as on the economy, according to research done by Worldwatch Institute. #chicken #farming #future #health #poultry #netherlands #meat #hunger #famine

A futuristic landscape inside a tomato greenhouse in the Netherlands, where the crops can reach up to 2 meters during harvesting time. This is how could look the future of farming. This small country has become an agricultural giant and it propose the most advanced high tech agro farming solutions to grow more with less. #farming #tomatoes #future #greenhouse #agriculture #life #technology #netherlans #crops

I shoot for Bloomberg BusinessWeek some of the incredible highways viaducts in Northern Italy. Here mountains, sea, the infrastructures are sharing a thin strip of land called Liguria. #italy #liguria #bloomberg #highway #roadtrip #church #sea #drone #dronefly #viaduct #proximity
