Nine years in orbit for the Swedish research satellite Odin
Odin was designed for a two-year mission and has now outlived the design goal life time by eight years. Since the launch in 2001, Odin has delivered a large amount of data that has resulted in 29 doctoral theses in the four partner countries, Sweden, Canada, France, and Finland. The most recent one is on satellite microwave measurements of cloud ice properties
, a newly developed method that will give information on ice clouds and their importance to the climate.
