#Sentinel2Go

MOST RECENT

The Copernicus Sentinel-2B satellite takes us over South Sudan. Having gained independence from Sudan in July 2011, South Sudan is the youngest country in the world. It has an estimated population of 13 million people, more than 80% of whom live in rural areas. Most of the population relies on farming, fishing or herding to meet their food and income needs.

The Sobat river is traced in a vibrant green colour along the left part of the image. This is the most southerly of the great eastern tributaries of the White Nile, the section of the Nile between Malakal, South Sudan and Khartoum, Sudan.

Tropical forests, swamps and grassland make up the majority of South Sudan’s terrain. A large, swampy area called the Sudd, which is about 320 km wide and 400 km long, can be found in the centre of the country. This is thought to be one of the largest freshwater ecosystems in the world and is fed by the White Nile and rainfall runoff from surrounding areas. It is home to large fish populations, millions of migratory birds, and various endangered species.

The area has also provided shelter for refugees fleeing the ongoing Sudanese civil war, which broke out in South Sudan in December 2013.

The red and gold in the lower-central part of the image shows smoke from a fire. The smoke is being driven by a northerly wind. The black parts of the image, similarly, show burnt areas of land – possibly the result of slash and burn agriculture. By burning dry grass, herders are able to fertilise the soil with ash, promoting new growth that can be used to feed livestock. Subsistence farmers also tend to use this method to manage land, returning nutrients to the soil and clearing the ground of unwanted plants in the process. Some of the negative longer-term impacts of this practice include air pollution, deforestation and erosion.

Fall back Friday: Time: 4:15 CET. I first met German astronaut Thomas Reiter immediately after the @europeanspaceagency’s launch of #Sentinel2b satellite on board an @arianespace 5 rocket. It was a very exciting day and night with over 100 participants inside #ESA’s ESOC (European Space Operations Center) in Darmstadt, #Germany. The room was electrifying after a successful #rocketlaunch in the middle of the night and filled with ESA officials, staff, scientists, and space enthusiasts that cane from all over. It was the first time that ESA had allowed so many people into its ESOC facility for a rocket launch. We named ourselves #Sentinerds (thanks to @astro_jolui for starting that moniker!) during the #Sentinel2Go launch. The Sentinel satellites are orbiting the earth gathering data and photos of our planet for climate measurements. As our climate changes on the planet, it is more imperative to understand how it affects earth and how things are shifting below atmosphere. The data is released to the public in an #opendata initiative and the images stunning.
I’ll never forget that all-nighter. It was my first rocket launch viewing and filled with moments of connection, learnings, and what Thomas reminded us of that evening, the precious gift that is our planet Earth and what it is to be human. Let’s do more #science collectively and make our world a better place! 🌍🚀🛰 . . . . . . . .

Family Foto of the #Sentinel2Go @europeanspaceagency #SocialMedia event last year. The #SoapBubles are in honor of the space debris talk wich i loved among the astronomy and interplanetary missions department.

Hoy hace un año exactamente estaba en Darmstadt en el ESOC (Centro europeo de operaciones espaciales) en el lanzamiento del satélite #sentinel2b a bordo del cohete #vega. El evento #sentinel2go supuso para mi un cambio en lo que quiero dedicarme en la vida. Conocí a un montón de gente increíble como yo, frikis del espacio y de las ciencias en general. Espero poder repetir una experiencia como ésta pronto.

Exactly one year ago, I was in Darmstadt, at the ESOC (European Space Operation Centre) in the launch of #sentinel2B satellite on board of a #VegaRocket. This #sentinel2go event supposed a change for me in what I want to work in the future. There, I met lots of amazing people like me, freaks about space and science. I really hope doing again a similar experience, maybe soon.

2017 PERSONAL HIGHLIGHTS- DAY 2
-
Another highlight of the year for me was working with @europeanspaceagency at their #Astronaut Centre in Cologne (EAC) and their research centre in Noordwijk (ESTEC). I made 4 trips this year researching, interviewing & meeting lots of people who work there. And checking out #spaceinvader art too! -
-

At EAC I became more familiar with the range of extraordinary #space activities happening every day, as they closely monitor their astronauts aboard the @iss or train them on the ground in preparation for future missions. @thom_astro was nearing the end of his mission during one of my visits. And since then we have had @astro_paolo 6 month #VITA mission, and soon @astro_alex_esa will be heading up to @iss in June 2018. - -
-
ESA is a huge organisation spanning across Europe, partnering with many many research institutes and manufacturers, to further our knowledge required to push even further out to space. It takes years of research and work for each tiny step forward and the contributions of many to succeed in those steps forward, incl the creation of the #moonvillage. As before, I’m reminded that it’s all about the people, the right team and the massive human effort required on the ground to put one person into space. -
-
Its a very exciting time to work with ESA and an awesome career opportunity in #STEM. #ireland🍀 is a member state of #ESA which means that Irish companies and research institutes get to work on state of the art innovations and new technologies. We dont yet contribute to the #HumanSpaceExploration component of the Agency but I hope that this may change in the years ahead.
-
From these #ESA trips I started thinking about how I could best represent that human contribution in an art piece. Which all went in to ‘Diary of a Martian Beekeeper’.
-
Thanks again to Aidan & Jules at EAC and Lorraine, Karen & Juan at ESTEC for their help & guidance this year. -

A side note from my regular #Instagram posts, I am UBER excited to share that I will reunite with @europeanspaceagency astronaut Thomas Reiter at the @dmexco Conference in Cologne on September 12 & 13th and completely over the moon that @nasajohnson's David Meza will be joining Thomas and me on the stage and other VIP speakers at the conference such as Jack Dorsey and @sherylsandberg. We will have more news to share in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
