The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite is named after Michael Freilich, the former head of NASA’s Earth science division who died of cancer in August. NASA and ESA named the satellite after Freilich in January before his death. Freilich’s son Daniel and daughter Sarah with Freilich’s baby granddaughter Rosie viewed the launch on site. On 21st November, Saturday, SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched this advanced ocean mapping Freilich satellite into orbit for National Aeronautics & Space Administration and the European Space Agency from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.
