Follow the launch of Sentinel 5P, the next satellite of Europe’s Copernicus programme.
Lift of is scheduled on 13 October at 09:27 GMT (11:27 CEST) from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia.
Sentinel-5P (for Sentinel-5 Precursor) is the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere. The satellite carries the state-of-the-art Tropomi instrument to map a multitude of trace gases such as nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide and aerosols – all of which affect the air we breathe and therefore our health, and our climate.
Sentinel-5P is the result of close collaboration between ESA, the European Commission, the Netherlands Space Office, industry, data users and scientists.
Live Transmission will be in 2 parts:
1/ Last preparations at Plesetsk with lift-off, ascent and first flight phase also from ESA's Operations Center (ESOC) in Darmstadt, Germany.
2/ After ballistic flight, separation of satellite, acquisition of signal and management statements.
Live transmission can also be followed on the web via the ESA portal.
