Today, 06 May 2015, CryoSat will be rolling left and right in orbit again to help continue its precise measurements of the vast ice sheets that blanket the Greenland and Antarctica areas.
CryoSat users are informed that tomorrow, 6 May, between 09:00 and 09:30 CEST, the Science Server will undergo a planned maintenance by the service provider.
The server may be unreachable during this time window. We apologise for the inconvenience.
