Airbus has been awarded a contract to design and build the GRACE-C (gravity recovery and climate experiment-continuity) twin spacecraft satellites by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The mission is a collaboration between NASA and German Space Agency at DLR (German Aerospace Centre), a partnership which began with the GRACE mission in 2002 and the GRACE Follow-On mission launched in 2018.
