An ESA and industry advisory board meeting over the past few days signed off on an investigation into Vega’s fairing separation and the replacement of a gas pressure sensor on the vehicle, allowing the new launch date to be confirmed.

Sentinel-2 carries an innovative wide-swath, high-resolution multispectral imager with 13 spectral bands for a new perspective of our land and vegetation. The second in the two-satellite mission – Sentinel-2B – is being prepared for launch in 2016.
