After years of hard work and planning, Metop-C was successfully launched from Kourou at 01:47 (CET) Wednesday!

You can watch the lift-off from the European Space Port here.

Now, a whole lot of other hard work has started!

We’ll keep you updated on Metop-C’s progress toward full operational status, which is expected early spring 2019, but, in the meantime, we thought you might enjoy some images from the launch.
