Carmen on stage presenting mundialis

We have been on stage at the Sentinel-2B launch event on 6-7 March 2017 at ESOC, Darmstadt.
Carmen Tawalika presented mundialis at 1:51 a.m. in the session on „Presentations on land and food“.

The Sentinel-2B got launched from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana early on 7 March at 01:49 GMT (02:49 CET).

At the event at ESOC were 100 selected social media users from all over Europe and the world, spreading out the word about the Sentinel-2B launch. Among official guests, ESA Earth observation experts and data users mundialis was there as well and our team member Carmen Tawalika showcased mundialis on stage:

This not head-on but interactive spirit of the event led to a whole bunch of social media promotion of the night using the hashtag #Sentinel2Go on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram and more:
