Sentinel-3B lifts off into space
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at the second Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellite, Sentinel-3B, lifting off into space on April 25, 2018.
Sentinel-3B will join its twin, Sentinel-3A, in orbit to measure and collect data on oceans, ice, land, and the atmosphere. More specifically, the Sentinel-3 mission is geared towards oceanography, including the measuring of aquatic biological productivity, marine pollution, and changes in sea-level.
