The whole event was a great success for European Space Agency - ESA and the entire Earth Observation - EO community. It has raised an amazing awareness and underlined the importance of the Copernicus program in every point of view. More than 300 guests attended during the event and cherish valuable talks from speakers. The social media community posted more than 17,000 twitter messages and approximately 21,000,000 people were reached worldwide. That was just an amazing broadcast by the the #Sentinel2Go team. Mr. Sascha Heising was interview live on stage in the night for an interview where he introduced FabSpace and invited everybody who is curious about earth observation technology to join FabSpace 2.0.

After a long night the FabSpace Darmstadt team was excited how many people could join FabSpace after the event. And of course, it was great to have the Sentinel-2B satellite safely in its orbit with her sister satellite Sentinel-2A.
