Early bird special – watch the TanDEM-X launch live

18 June 2010

TanDEM-X, Germany's new Earth observation satellite, is scheduled for launch on Monday, 21 June 2010 at 04:14 CEST. Together with its twin, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X will survey all 150 million square kilometres of Earth's land surface several times during its three-year mission. We will stream the TanDEM-X launch live from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, as well as an exclusive infotainment programme from the control centre in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany.

In addition, we will be posting real-time updates to DLR's Twitter channel and the TanDEM-X mission blog. You are also welcome to chat with us via Livestream-Chat.
