Sentinel 1b launch

The second of the Sentinel SAR satellites is going up this Friday. Sentinel 1b's introduction means that instead of having to wait approx 12 days between each overpass we should only have to wait about 5 or 6 days? They have also piggybacked a number of smaller cubesats on the launch vehicle to get maximum bang for their buck.. Speaking of Sentinel - here is a great image that I came across last week of a Sentinel 1a multi-temporal SAR colour composite of land coverage across the island created by ESA.

Good luck Sentinel 1b.
