The European Space Agency has launched a satellite that will measure wind speeds across Earth.

The satellite is named Aeolus and blasted off from French Guiana in South America on Wednesday 22 August.

The launch had to be pushed back by a day because of, wait for it, windy weather.

It’s the ‘world-first’ space mission to map Earth’s winds, and the satellite is one of the most advanced in space.
