  • Earth from Space

    Join us Friday, 25 April, at 10:00 CEST for an 800 km-high tour with spectacular images from Earth-observing satellites

  • Sentinel-3 stacks up

    Over the last year, engineers have been carefully testing and piecing together the multitude of components that make up Sentinel-3. The recent arrival of the infrared radiometer is a milestone in the exacting process of building this upcoming Copernicus mission.

  • Livas brings aerosols and clouds under one roof

    In Greek mythology, Aeolus was ‘keeper of the winds’ and ruled over a number of gods, each responsible for a particular wind – one of which was Livas who blew from the southwest. Today, Livas is giving a helping hand to ESA’s ADM-Aeolus and EarthCARE satellite missions.

  • Sentinel-1 first images

    Demonstrating the potential of radar vision, Sentinel-1A offers a tantalising glimpse of what it will provide for Europe’s Copernicus programme

  • First radar vision for Copernicus

    Launched on 3 April, ESA’s Sentinel-1A satellite has already delivered its first radar images of Earth. They offer a tantalising glimpse of the kind of operational imagery that this new mission will provide for Europe’s ambitious Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.

  • Copernicus applications

    Discover how Copernicus satellites support energy planning

  • Rocks and salt

    Earth observation image of the week: a dried-up salt marsh near the northeast Caspian Sea, also featured on the Earth from Space video programme

  • Copernicus Masters seeks new ideas for satellite data

    The fourth annual Copernicus Masters competition is just around the corner. Ideas for services, business concepts and applications based on satellite Earth observation data can be submitted starting on 15 April.

  • Ride into space

    Cameras on the Soyuz rocket that launched the first Sentinel satellite into space give us a unique front-row seat from liftoff to separation

  • Testing Sentinel’s radar vision

    Two days after launch, the first Sentinel satellite for Europe’s Copernicus programme has passed its initial instrument checks and technical verifications of the ground segment.

  • Sentinel-1 performs opening dance routine

    Following its launch yesterday, Sentinel-1A has performed a carefully choreographed 10-hour dance routine to open its large radar antenna and solar wings.

  • Meet Sentinel-1

    Marking a new era in Earth observation, Sentinel-1A was launched on 3 April. Discover the first mission for Europe's Copernicus programme
