While most of us may be looking forward to spending some time in the sunshine this summer, the Sentinel-2B satellite is being subjected to the extreme cold of space to make sure it is fit for life in orbit.

Sentinel-2B will be the next satellite launched for Europe's environmental Copernicus programme.
