Wind tracking satellite launched from Kourou spaceport in French Guiana.
On Aug. 22, the first European satellite to measure
wind speeds around the world was launched.
The launch was postponed for 24
hours due to bad weather conditions.
Named after the God of the keeper of the winds,
Aeolus made a successful launch.
Climate and weather predictions will be more
accurate now thanks to Aeolus.
