Less than three months after rocketing into space, the commercial WorldView 4 Earth-imagery satellite has finished in-orbit testing and calibration to begin operations for DigitalGlobe.

To commemorate the milestone, the company has released a stunning image taken from space of the United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 blasting off with WorldView 4 on 11 November from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.
