Developing a space mission is a long process that involves a lot of tests, sometimes in harsh environments.

Enduring temperatures of 30 degrees below zero, a team tested an airborne version of an imaging microwave radiometer to support the development of a potential satellite mission for Europe’s Copernicus programme.
