Sentinel-2 teams prepare for space
16 February 2017
Going to space is never routine, and Sentinel-2 mission controllers are leaving nothing to chance as they prepare for the critical days following next month's liftoff.
Launched in 2015, ESA's Sentinel-2 mission is using the first of two near-identical 'colour-vision' satellites to deliver sophisticated information that is central to Europe's Copernicus programme.
Now, the Sentinel-2A craft is about to be joined by its twin, Sentinel-2B, which will complete the pairing that will cover all Earth's land surfaces, large islands, and inland and coastal waters every five days.

ESA is addressing the challenge of cultivating and regenerating forests with Thematic Exploitation Platforms.
The aim is to unlock satellite data and make the information available to the non-expert along with the tools and resources they need – and critically make all this accessible from one place.
