Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency introduces a new tool called the Electronic Field Book, software that was designed to help scientists overcome the challenge of poor connections in remote locations.
The device integrates data sharing, voice chat, and real-world positioning with inputs from external tools such as microscopes and spectrometers.
This innovative tool can record every step of a scientific research expedition while documenting all communication.
An upgraded version of the Electronic Field Book was used for the first time during the Pangaea 2018 campaign in Lanzarote, Spain.
