Harmony mission moves to next phase

Kudos to MIRSL alumnus Paco Lopez Dekker (PhD '03) whose satellite mission concept, Harmony, has been chosen by the European Space Agency (ESA) to move to the next phase of development as the tenth Earth Explorer mission. Harmony is envisaged as a mission with two satellites that orbit in formation with one of the Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellites to address key scientific questions related to ocean, ice, and land dynamics.  

Paco is currently an Associate Professor in the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Department of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at the Delft University of Technology.  Congrats Paco!
