Revisit the Copernicus Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich launch

Watch the replay of the full Copernicus Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich launch coverage. This new satellite lifted off on 21 November a Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, US.

Copernicus Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich is the first of two identical satellites to provide critical measurements of sea-level change. This latest Copernicus satellite will continue the long-term record of reference measurements, extending the record of sea-level height into a fourth decade. The launch coverage includes the all-important liftoff and acquisition of signal as well as discussions with experts and partners in the mission, as well as data users. The Copernicus Sentinel-6 mission is a true example of international cooperation. While Sentinel-6 is one of the European Union’s family of Copernicus missions, its implementation is the result of the unique collaboration between ESA, NASA, Eumetsat and NOAA, with contribution from the French space agency CNES
