The preparations of ESA’s latest earth observation satellite SENTINEL-5P with the P for Precursor are finished and the satellite has been shipped to the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia for launch in October 2017.
Sentinel-5P will ensure the continued data gathering on earth’s atmosphere and is the intermediary satellite to fill the gap between the past generation of atmospheric monitoring satellites and the future generation of sentinel-4 and 5 which will be launched in the early twenties. Sentinel-5P is part of Copernicus, the world’s largest environmental monitoring programme which is operated by the European Commission.
