The preparations of a new Copernicus Earth observation satellite, Sentinel-2B, are finished and the satellite will soon be carried into orbit by ESA’s own lightweight launcher Vega, departing from Europe’s spaceport in Kourou.
Sentinel-2B is set to play a key role in the Copernicus programme, the world’s largest environmental monitoring programme which is headed by the European Commission in partnership with ESA.
