Sentinel 3a getting ready!

Here is the ESA blog charting the last days to the launch (16th Feb). You should also be able to watch the launch live. Details on the Satellite here. I really liked how they choose the rocket logos - apparently it is a tradition to associate each Rocket launch with a constellation made of a number of ‘bright’ stars equal to the number of the launch. This is 25 - so they chose the Libra constellation.
