Planet Labs, a space and analytics company formerly known as Cosmogia, is announcing $13 million in funding from DFJ, Capricorn, OATV, Founders Fund Angel, Innovation Endeavors, Data Collective and First Round Capital.

Planet Labs, which was founded by former NASA scientists, plans to launch the world’s largest fleet of imaging satellites that will map the entire Earth to better understand the changing planet and ecosystems. The company successfully launched two imaging satellites in April 2013 for testing purposes.

The startup was founded in 2010 by Robbie Schingler, William Marshall and Chris Boshuizen, who are all physicists who previously worked at NASA. They first met at an international conference that gathered young professionals to make policy recommendations on how space can benefit humanity, and since then all worked on small scientific satellites at NASA Ames. Schingler also worked at NASA HQ where he helped to incubate NASA’s Space Technology program.
