🤩 CryoSat lives! 🤩

⛽️ A fuel leak threatened to bring @esa's ice mission to a premature end
🕹️ At @esaoperations yesterday, we swapped to its back-up propulsion system
🥵 The back-up thrusters had never been used before, in over 13 years in space...

🥳 ...and it was a success! CryoSat flies on, to continue its unparalleled record of global ice for a good while yet
