ESA’s flagship magazine informs the space-interested public of the Agency’s activities. In addition to a wide range of articles, every issue provides an overview of the status of ESA’s major space projects.
Earth observation is the major theme in the August 2007 issue of the ESA Bulletin.
The ‘GMES’ series of observation satellites will help to provide the information needed to manage our environment, understand and mitigate the effects of climate change, and ensure civil security for Europe. The first three sets of ‘Sentinel’ satellites are already in development.
