The new Sentinel 2B satellite satellite by ESA has started tonight at 2:49 MECT from the ESA Spaceport in French Guiana.
Sentinel is a multi-billion-euro (8-9 billion euros up to 2020) project in order to provide images of land, oceans and waterways. The data is open access and can be used by anyone.
That’s a short update, I will write more about the Sentinel satellites soon
