A space satellite built in Hertfordshire has started beaming images of pollution back to Earth.
The Sentinel 5 Precursor was constructed at Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage.
The pictures will show us the extent of pollution - both man-made and natural - in our air around the world and hopefully lead to solutions.
The Sentinel 5 was designed to last for seven years but it's gone into orbit so successfully the signs are it could now last twice as long.

Norfolk scientists have been given a grant to help create new technology to help diagnose bird flu.
The disease has caused major problems for the region's poultry farmers, leading to restriction zones and culls. It's hoped researchers at Iceni Diagnostics want to create a hand held diagnostic machine.
The device could be used by a vet on-farm. The device would use a carbohydrate-based chemical, developed in ID's Norwich Research Park laboratories, which latches on to the avian influenza virus, providing an instant diagnosis and speeding up a process that currently requires samples to be sent off for testing. It's hoped this new method might reduce the need for precautionary mass culls of poultry in the future.
The work has been made possible thanks to a £60,000 grant from the Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative.
