And another launch this year is now five for Arianespace after today's successful launch of the Aeolus satellite European Space Agency (ESA), the first space mission created to capture global winds profiles.
Data on air movements are now collected from the ground or indirectly by observing waves and clouds from aircraft or space.
Aeolus carries only one large instrument, a Doppler wind lidar called Aladin. Aeolus will certainly help with weather forecasts around the world, and the data collected will help scientists better understand climate change and how it will affect Earth's climate in the future. Experts expect improvements in Atlantic hurricane landings and simulations suggest that the accuracy of typhoon path projects could be improved by 9 percent. The Aeolus satellite is now in low orbit and will have a lifespan of approximately three years.

Shortly after the announcement of the satellite's orbital injection, Stéphane Israël, general director of Arianespace said: "Thus, Fifth Mission of the Year and the first of Vega Arianespace also writes her 50th mission for the European Space Agency and expresses its primary vocation to ensure an autonomous and reliable access to space for Europe ". The CCD69 UV detector aboard the Aeolus will help collect wind data profiles of the Earth to improve the accuracy of global weather forecasts.

This measure resulted in financial loss and Credit Suisse remained very active in the Russian Federation. Credit Suisse says it remains committed to the Russian Federation and continues to monitor developments.
Scientists will use this data to predict the weather, hoping to revolutionize weather forecasting methods. The Aeolus satellite, operated by ESA, will study wind patterns to provide more precise values for different purposes, from better weather forecasts to accurate maps of tropical currents. Aladin works with small laser pulses and collects the light that emits particles in the atmosphere with a 5-foot telescopic cup.
After the start, ESA Earth Observation Program Director Josef Aschbacher said: "This groundbreaking technology has led us to develop a challenging mission, but thanks to all the teams involved, we are thrilled that this exceptional satellite is now in orbit.
The full name of the satellite is Atmospheric Dynamics Mission Aeolus
"Space is a key element of our modern industrial strategy, and this work demonstrates the importance of our role in the European Space Agency is to bring real benefits to British companies. "" We look forward to meeting expectations. "
