    The European Space Agency’s three Swarm satellites are scheduled to be placed into low-Earth orbit (460-530 km) on 22 November from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russia, by a Rockot launcher. Their objective is to gather crucial data about Earth’s magnetic field with a suite of instruments that CNES and its partners helped to develop. Watch the Swarm launch event live from the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany, and liftoff from Plesetsk, Russia from 11h45 (CET)
