ESA's next Earth Explorer 31 January 2019
According to the European Space Agency's news service on 30 January the date has been set for the Earth observation science community to come together and discuss the merits of the two satellite concepts competing to be ESA's next Earth Explorer: 16-17 July 2019.
It is understood that the series of Earth Explorer missions use innovative measurement techniques to yield new insight into different aspects of the Earth system and the interactions that bind the system as a whole.
ESA's Director of Earth Observation Programmes, Josef Aschbacher, commented: 'These cutting-edge missions address questions that have a direct bearing on issues that humankind is facing now and will face in the future such as the availability of food, water, energy, natural resources, public health and climate change.'
