Landsat Data Continuity Mission Planned for Launch July 2011

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has purchased an Atlas-V booster for launch of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California in July 2011.

The Landsat mission will extend the more than 30-year record of high-quality land surface measurements from previous Landsat satellites, NASA said. Scientists use the remote sensing data from Landsat to study, understand and predict the effects of changes to Earth's land surface. Thousands of commercial users of the remote sensing data have created astounding and varied applications.
