Why do we need radar satellites?
Launch and orbit injection as seen from a unique perspective.

Sentinel 1A

Last night saw the successful launch of the first in the series of Sentinel satellites. Sentinel-1A is the first in a fleet of ESA satellites poised to deliver the wealth of data and imagery that are central to Europe’s Copernicus programme.

Just to finish off all things Sentinel - watch the launch and orbit injection from a different angle...very cool.
