The European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) invited the Cypriot cardiologist Mrs. Chariklea Olimbiou to watch at the launch of the 5th satellite of the Earth. The lauch is part of the multi-billion programme of the Copernicus centre, which will allow to get instant photos of parts of our planet, its oceans and waterways.
The launch took place at 03:49 Cyprus time. Mrs. Chariklea Olimbiou was watching with her colleagues from Darmstadt (Germany), where the ESOC is located.
The first images are available in the Instagram of the ESOC.
