The GERB instrument onboard the MSG-1 (Meteosat Second Generation) satellite took its first measurements, Thursday 12 December.
The results of such measurements are pictured in images that identify the likely areas where there is a net gain or loss of energy in the Earth’s climate system.
Rosetta’s 10 year expedition will begin on 13 January 2003, with an Ariane-5 launch from Kourou in French Guiana. The three-tonne spacecraft will first be inserted into a parking orbit, before being sent on its way towards the outer Solar System. Today ESA launches the new site with detailed information on the journey and experiments of the Rosetta mission.
