You can watch the launch of Sentinel 1A, the first satellite dedicated to Copernicus, today from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana. Lift off is scheduled for 23:02 Brussels time. Web streaming: http://www.esa.int/spaceinvideos/ESA_Live

Copernicus, the EU’s Earth Observation Programme, will ensure the regular observation and monitoring of Earth sub-systems, the atmosphere, oceans, and continental surfaces, and will provide reliable, validated and guaranteed information in support of a broad range of environmental and security applications and decisions. This launch marks a major milestone for Copernicus. Dedicated earth observation data will become available for operational services immediately.
