Space campus from space

Published: 4 December 2020

Kiruna Space Campus has been captured from space by the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission.

The picture was taken in May but released just recently – a beautiful view of the snow covered city of Kiruna. 

Sentinel-2 is an Earth observation mission from ESA's Copernicus Programme. The Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission includes two polar-orbiting satellites placed in the same orbit. The satellites are covering many different services and applications, for example agricultural monotoring, emergencies management, and land cover classification.
