Pleiades-1B Satellite Sensor (0.5m)
Pleiades-1B satellite sensor was successfully launched on December 2, 2012. Built by AIRBUS Defence & Space, the satellite was launched from a Soyuz launcher at the European Space Centre in French Guiana.
The launch of Pleiades-1B satellite sensor marks the third step in the formation of a constellation of four satellites combining a double daily revisit capability and an ingenious range of resolutions.
Pleiades-1A and 1B satellites will be phased 180° apart in the same near-polar sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 694 km, enabling daily revisits to any location on the planet which makes it ideal for mapping large scale areas including engineering and construction projects, monitoring of mining, industrial and military complexes, conflict zones and crisis/disasterareas, natural hazards, evacuation and rescue operations.
Pleiades-1A and Pleiades-1B will deliver 0.5m imagery products, and SPOT-6 and SPOT-7, designed to assure continuity of service after SPOT-5 (2.5/5m) to supply high-resolution data products at 1.5m. SPOT-6 was launched on September 9, 2012.
In addition to their high precision, the Pleiades-1 satellites are also notable for their remarkable agility, which enables tilted imaging from nadir and operation in several acquisition modes (20 images over 1000 x 1000 km2, stereo, 3D, mosaic, corridor, etc.).

The 2020 Giro Italia was to have taken place from 9 to 31 May 2020, as the 103rd edition of the Giro d'Italia, a three-week Grand Tour cycling stage race. The start of the 2020 Giro (known as the Grande Partenza) had been planned to take place in Budapest, Hungary, which would have been the 14th time the Giro has started outside Italy, and the first time a Grand Tour has visited Hungary. The event was jeopardised by the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, and in March 2020 it was postponed. UCI announced that both Giro and Vuelta will take place in autumn after the 2020 UCI Road World Championships.&n..
The 2020 Dakar Rally was the 42nd edition of the event and the first edition held in Saudi Arabia. The event started in Jeddah on 5 January and finished in Al-Qiddiya 17 January after 12 stages of competition. The rally was marred by the fatal accidents of Portuguese motorcyclist Paulo Gonçalves on stage 7 and Dutch motorcyclist Edwin Straver on stage 11. After 11 years in South America, the event was held in the Asian continent for the first time ever. Organisers admitted that there was "hesitation" before the decision to hold the event in a country which has been under fire over human rights..
