Recommended Posts

Coming_soon_MTG_The_Next_Generation_card Video: 00:00:48

One week today, the first of a new generation of weather satellites will take to the skies. The Meteosat Third Generation system is the most complex and innovative meteorological satellite systems ever built. It will bring new capabilities to monitor weather, climate and the environment from space like never before – promising to further bolster Europe’s leadership in weather forecasting.

Join us for the live launch coverage of the Metetosat Third Generation Imager on 13 December on ESA Web TV.

      An in-depth analysis of Suspicious0bservers of what we may expect here on earth in the near future 

      Unprecedented astronomical events...
      1. Changes on planets, stars and sun (1859-Now) 2. Solar killshot (Technological) - (2020s/2030s) 3. Weather, animals, the solar red and black (2030s) 4. Solar micronova event (2030s/2040s) 5. Shell impact, Arc discharge (within hours) 6. Whole planet electrical insult (within minutes) 7. Earth turns over, impactors, cold (begins immediately - lasts days/weeks) 
      Coincidental or not but the analysis of Suspicious0bservers is comparable with some of Baba Vanga's predictions, that a big astronomical event will occur as Earth's orbit will change and as a result of this event, it could have catastrophic consequences on Earth as well as the Earth will be hit by an unprecedented solar storm on a scale the world has never before seen.
      Is a disaster unfolding?

      Video: 00:03:13 Watch the replay the MTG-I1 launch coverage. The video includes streaming of the event at ESA’s ESTEC establishment in the Netherlands and footage of liftoff from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.
      The first Meteosat Third Generation Imager (MTG-I1) satellite lifted off on an Ariane 5 rocket from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana on 13 December at 21:30 CET.
      From geostationary orbit, 36,000 km above the equator, this all-new weather satellite will provide state-of-the art observations of Earth’s atmosphere and realtime monitoring of lightning events, taking weather forecasting to the next level. The satellite carries two completely new instruments: Europe’s first Lightning Imager and a Flexible Combined Imager.
      MTG-I1 is the first of six satellites that form the full MTG system, which will provide critical data for weather forecasting over the next 20 years. In full operations, the mission will comprise two MTG-I satellites and one MTG Sounding (MTG-S) satellites working in tandem.
      The MTG mission is a cooperation between Eumetsat and ESA. ESA is responsible developing and procuring the six MTG satellites. Eumetsat defines the system requirements, develops the ground systems, procures the launch services, operates the satellites, and makes the data available to users.
