rESA’s latest Earth observation satellite Sentinel-5P has been fueled and is now ready for launch from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Northern Russia.
Lift of is scheduled on 13 October at 9h27 GMT.
The satellite will join the rest of the fleet of Sentinel satellites in orbit as part of the Copernicus European Union programme.
Sentinel-5P’s purpose is to collect data on the Earth atmosphere. It is an intermediary satellite to fill the gap between the past generation of atmospheric monitoring satellites such as Envisat and the future generation comprised of Sentinel-4 and 5.
The raw data of Sentinel-5P will be sent to the DLR -Deutsches Zentrum für Luft-und Raumfahrt— Earth observation center in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany where it will be processed and archived. Then this data will be distributed to users worldwide.
This A&B roll explains the services Sentinel-5P will provide, it also includes images of the satellite in Plesetsk with a timelapse of its last preparation before it is put under Rokot’s fairing.
