PROBA-V five years in space
In the night from 6 to 7 May 2013, our PROBA-V satellite was launched by ESA from Kourou space port in French Guyana.
This week, we are happy to celebrate the completion of fifth year in orbit. This is an important milestone, as the mission surpasses its original design lifetime, just like its PROBA-1 and PROBA-2 cousins did.
With the platform in good shape and data use on the rise, we look forward and work hard to tack on another year and a half, until at least the end of October 2019.

Or simply join us in the celebration of this momentous occasion at the upcoming PROBA-V Symposium in Ostend. We hope to see you there!
