Soon to be launched aboard the second VEGA flight from Kourou, PROBA V, V for Vegetation, is part of a series of small satellites made by ESA to demonstrate new technologies on orbit.
But this satellite - of only one cubic meter - will be an operational tool to monitor vegetation on Earth.
This video explains the mission of this innovative satellite mostly made in Belgium.
It includes interviews of PROBA V managers in English, French and Dutch.
