The sleek aerodynamic design of GOCE (Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer) immediately sets it apart from most other satellites.

The satellite together with its sensor, system of supporting instrumentation and control elements actually form a single composite gravity-measuring device.
