TwinSat Project is a space Russia-UK joint for the next generation satellites. These new sats will be used to observe and monitor seismic activity on Earth, such as earthquakes and volcanoes.

“The TwinSat Project would involve two spacecrafts which would orbit the Earth about 400 kilometers apart and with instrumentation on board that would study the ionosphere from above,” Alan Smith explains. He is the head of the British part of the project. “What we are looking for are signatures in the ionosphere which are precursors to earthquake phenomena and volcanic eruption phenomena,” these informations being afterwards used in the earthquake prediction programme.

A special website will be prepared to predict earthquakes and other atmospheric phenomenon. They hope to predict up to 10 days before an eventual disaster.
