'Dog kennel' satellite set to launch

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

A satellite that will be critical to understanding of climate change will launch on Saturday from California.

Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich will become the primary means of measuring the shape of the world's oceans.

Its data will track not only sea-level rise but reveal how the great mass of waters are moving around the globe.

Looking somewhat like a dog kennel, the sophisticated 1.3-tonne satellite is due to lift off from the Vandenberg base at 09:17 local time (17:17 GMT).
