NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center is hosting a live launch viewing of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission!


The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) is the eighth spacecraft in the Landsat satellite series. Since 1972, Landsat satellites have been observing and measuring Earth’s continental and coastal land­scapes at a scale where human impacts and natural changes can be monitored and characterized over time. LDCM will launch from Vandenberg AFB near Lampoc, California.


Launch is scheduled for Monday, February 11, 2013, at 1:04 p.m. EST. Doors to the Goddard Visitors Center will open at 12:30 p.m. and close at 2:30 pm. Members of the Landsat project will be on hand to explain the mission and will be available for questions.
