Once the preparatory work has been completed, and the satellite developed and manufactured, the next step is launch and operations with a view to ensuring that it fulfils its original mission objectives. The post-launch phase can span many years, often as long or longer than the developmental phase. Some ESA scientific satellites even continue to operate beyond their original planned lifespan.
Join ESA experts working in launchers, operations, mission management and scientific data processing to find out what happens in the final phases of the mission when all the planning and development comes to fruition.
