This article provides an overview on Earth Observation satellites, describing the end-to-end elements of an Earth Observation mission and then focusing on the European Earth Observation programs. Some significant results obtained using data from European missions (ERS, Envisat) are provided. Finally the access to Earth Observation data through the European Space Agency, free of charge, is described.
