Call for Media: Launch of the first Sentinel satellite

25 March 2014

The first satellite of Europe's Copernicus programme is set for launch from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana on 3 April at 21:02 GMT (23:02 CEST). Media representatives are invited to follow the launch online or attend the main launch event at ESA's ESOC operations centre in Darmstadt, Germany.

The Sentinels, a new fleet of ESA satellites, are poised to deliver the wealth of data and imagery that are central to the EU's Copernicus programme.

By offering a set of key information services for a broad range of applications, this global monitoring programme is a step change in the way we manage our environment, understand and tackle the effects of climate change, and safeguard everyday lives.

ESA's Portal will cover the launch live, providing the videostream and updates of the launch at: www.esa.int/esalive and www.livestream.com/eurospaceagency
