This area of #Italy’s #Po Valley, about 40 km east of Milan, is a subset from Sentinel-2A’s first image captured on 27 June 2015, just four days after launch. A motorway runs across the image, while the Serio river is visible running north to south in the middle. #Sentinel2

I'm guessing that this photo shows rivers that existed in the past? How long ago?

As a critical input to the decision-making process that will lead to the selection of ESA’s eighth Earth Explorer mission, the Reports for Mission Selection of the two candidate opportunity missions – CarbonSat and FLEX – are now available.

The European Data Relay System #EDRS is the most sophisticated laser communication network ever designed. Dubbed the ‘SpaceDataHighway’, EDRS will help Earth-observing satellites to transmit large quantities of potentially life-saving data down to Europe in near-real time. #SpaceDataHighway #Telecommunication
