NASA launches U.S.-European satellite mission to monitor global sea levels

The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite — named for the former director of NASA’s Earth Science Division — launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on November 21.

“The Earth is changing, and this satellite will help deepen our understanding of how,” said Karen St. Germain, director of NASA’s Earth Science Division. “The changing Earth processes are affecting sea level globally, but the impact on local communities varies widely.”

Alain Ratier, director-general of the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, which is supporting the mission, said, “The data from this satellite, which is so critical for climate monitoring and weather forecasting, will be of unprecedented accuracy.”

STEM STARS GREECE: Looking for Greek Science Stars

The U.S. Embassy in Athens and the Greek nonprofit organization SciCo, are pleased to announce STEM STARS GREECE, a competition that supports, highlights, and rewards 14 to 18-year-old students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The top finishers will represent Greece at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world’s largest international science competition, which will take place virtually in May 2021.  STEM STARS GREECE is being held under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs and is sponsored by Microsoft Hellas.

The competition offers participants the opportunity to dive into specific areas of interest in STEM; develop research, collaboration, presentation and communication skills; present their findings to an audience; network with people who have common research interests, including scientists and STEM professionals; and win valuable prizes.

The STEM STARS GREECE competition is one of the bilateral "people to people” priorities discussed during the U.S.-Greece Strategic Dialogue process in 2020. This year’s contest is also one in a series of initiatives supported by the U.S. Embassy in Athens in 2021 that will commemorate 200 years of friendship between Greece and the United States of America.
