Finally, everithing work without too many incidents, even if the first weeks were full of surprises. This work implied a lot of people to obtain the project funding and decision, to demonstrate the feasibility, to prepare the project, update the software, program and monitot the acquisitions, process and distribute the data. I would like to thank here all the people at CNES, ESA, Airbus Defense and space, and in the companies involved in this successful project.
On September the 2nd, two months after the distribution opening, and in a holiday period, you were already 208 users to have downloaded some of SPOT5 (Take5) data.
