A Soyuz rocket will launch Sentinel-1B for the Copernicus Programme from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.
Soyuz will also embark auxiliary passengers, three Cubesats from Belgium, Denmark and Italy. These small satellites are part of the “Fly your Satellite” programme.
“Fly your Satellite” is an ESA educational initiative whose focus is to have university students working directly on a satellite and participating in most of its phases from design to launch and operations on orbit.
A unique experience explained in this video filmed in Europe and Kourou.
