On 22 November 2013 the three ESA Swarm spacecraft were launched, and started their mission to deepen our understanding of Earth's magnetic field from the Core to the Sun.

After 6 years and more than 30,000 revolutions around our planet, the Swarm triplets are in excellent health providing groundbreaking new insight into Earth's magnetic field and near-Earth space environment helping us find answers to fundamental questions about our planet.

Happy 6th birthday Swarm Alpha, Bravo and Charlie and many more to come!
