Mini Earth-observer Proba-1’s 20 years in orbit

ESA’s Proba-1 minisatellite was launched into orbit two decades ago today. It remains fully operational, however, making it the Agency’s oldest serving Earth observing mission. Proba-1 is roughly the size of a hotel fridge but hosts two Earth-observing instruments along with numerous technological firsts.
