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.

A pollution monitoring satellite built in Stevenage is being launched today from Russia to monitor pollution levels across the globe.
It comes after a World Health Organisation warning that pollution is a greater global threat than Ebola and HIV.
The satellite, Sentinel-5 Precursor, will be able to map a number of gases including nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide and aerosols.
