10 years CHAMP - Mission Exploration of gravity, magnetic field and atmosphere
On 15th of July 2010 at 14:32 GMT, the georesearch satellite CHAMP orbited the Earth for the 57217th time, thus heralding its 10th anniversary in service.
Exactly one decade ago, the satellite was set into an almost polar orbit at the head of a Russian COSMOS-rocket following a text-book launch from the Plesetsk cosmodrome.
The 10th anniversary of CHAMP has already been celebrated with a colloquium on June 30 2010 at GFZ Potsdam.
