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