This year's Copernicus Masters competition is now open. With prizes totalling more than €1.5 million, the chance to design and launch a small satellite mission and much more, Europe's leading competition for the novel use of Earth observation has never been so impressive.
An upcoming special issue in Elsevier will report on the Sentinel-2 mission. In the spirit of Open Science, ESA funds - with the support of Elsevier - the open access for up to 24 papers which will be accepted within this special issue.

A new processing tool has been developed to bundle information contained in large amounts of satellite data, paving the way for the wealth of Copernicus Sentinel satellite data to be more easily incorporated into online environment-monitoring services.

A series of maintenance activities both at infrastructure and at application level are scheduled for the 04, 05 and 12 April 2017.
As a consequence of a Sentinel-2 PDGS ground segment anomaly, the publication of Sentinel-2A products in the data hubs was temporarily unavailable from 1 to 3 April 2017, between sensing orbit 9266 and 9296.

Today we are interviewing ESA's Philippe Goryl, who is responsible for leading the data quality managers of the various Sentinel missions.

Due to a mission planning anomaly, no Sentinel-2 MSI data has been acquired between 12:43 UTC (orbit 9158) and 16:15 UTC (orbit 9160) on Friday 24 March 2017.

With the pair of Sentinel-2 satellites now in orbit, users are looking ahead to mapping global land cover at 10 m resolution.

Satellite radar scans of last year's earthquake in New Zealand are changing the way we are thinking about earthquake hazards in regions where our planet's tectonic plates meet.
Sentinel-1B was unavailable between 21 March 16:23 UTC and 22 March 11:53 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.
