The European Space Agency (ESA), in collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), plans to launch the EarthCARE mission into space on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket at the end of the month, no earlier than May 28.

The launch will be made from the Vandenberg Space Force base in California, the ESA reports on its website.

The EarthCARE (Cloud, Aerosol and Radiation Explorer) mission is the largest and “most complex” Earth explorer to date.

It will advance our knowledge of the role that clouds and aerosols play in reflecting incident solar radiation back into space and trapping infrared radiation emitted from the Earth’s surface.

Developed as a cooperation between ESA and JAXA, “this exciting mission will perform a series of different measurements that together will shed new light on the role that clouds and aerosols play in regulating the Earth’s delicate temperature balance.”

“With global climate change increasingly affecting our planet, EarthCARE is poised to provide data for climate research, improve the accuracy of climate models, and support numerical climate prediction,” it said.

The satellite will provide “critical information to understand how our world works and the impact that human activity is having on natural processes,” summarizes the ESA.
