    Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich launch and Falcon 9 first stage landing

    Nov 21, 2020

    The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite was launched by a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, on 21 November 2020, at 17:17 UTC (09:17 PST). The Sentinel-6 mission is part of the European Union’s family of Copernicus satellite missions and consists of two satellites: Copernicus Sentinel-6A and Copernicus Sentinel-6B, scheduled to launch in 2025. The Copernicus Sentinel-6 mission aims to provide the most accurate data yet on sea level and how it changes over time. NASA’s contribution to the mission are three science instruments for each of the two satellites, the Advanced Microwave Radiometer, the Global Navigation Satellite System – Radio Occultation, and the Laser Retroreflector Array, as well as launch services, awarded for Sentinel-6A to SpaceX for approximately 97 million USD, and supporting operations of the NASA science instruments. The Sentinel-6A satellite was renamed in honor of Dr. Michael H. Freilich, the former director of NASA’s Earth Science Division. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on Landing Zone 4 at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
