ESA proceeds with TU Delft mission proposal

ESA proceeds with TU Delft mission proposal

After several years of in-depth studies involving several candidates, ESA has decided to take TU Delft’s mission idea Harmony to the final decisive phase for the Earth Explorer 10 satellite mission. Harmony will address key scientific questions related to ocean, ice and land dynamics. If the final phase is completed successfully, Harmony is expected to be launched into orbit around 2030. Dr. Paco López-Dekker from the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Department, was the lead proposer of Harmony and serves as principal investigator.
