    Members at Vandenberg Air Force Base launched the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020, at 9:17 a.m., from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. The Sentinel-6 is the first of two identical satellites to head into Earth orbit five years apart to continue sea level observations for at least the next decade. The 30th Space Wing’s primary responsibilities include maintaining and operating the Western Range, providing mission assurance, safeguarding the public and ensuring minimal environmental impact so we can provide services, facilities and range safety control for the execution of Department of Defense, civilian and commercial launches.
