...a year, you have to give yourself a little nudge to get out of the way of something," explained Ian Shurmer, Sentinel-1a's operational team leader. "We just pushed Sentinel-1a down by about 50m to make sure nothing happened."
"Glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland are flowing faster today than at any time in the satellite era, and the measurements we have acquired from space since the 1990s have transformed our ability to study the impacts of climate change. We're confident that Sentinel-1A will provide a step change in our ability to detect these changes, as it is the first mission designed with collecting observations of ice motion in mind."
"The problems were detected in pre-launch electrical tests of the satellite," a Baikonur source told Interfax-AVN. "Hence, the launch may be delayed until a later date."
"At the moment, it's very difficult to find out who has the data and to know what level of trust you can place in it" he said at Thursday's event
