News ESA's smallest satellite delivering big results

The European Space Agency’s smallest satellite is unsurpassed by any other mission of its type in collecting vital scientific information. The successes the Compact High Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (CHRIS), part of the Earth Observation satellite Proba, were the focus of a recent conference at ESRIN, ESA's Earth Observation Centre in Frascati, Italy. Some 60 researchers from all around the world came together to discuss the stunning results of the project as well as what is in store for CHRIS. Scientists highlighted the need to continue the Proba mission until future missions become available. To promote the work of Proba and garner further support for its mission, participants decided to present their findings at the 2007 Envisat Symposium in Montreux, Switzerland in April. To this end, Proba Scientific Investigators are invited to submit their contributions to be included in dedicated sessions at the symposium.
