Feb. 6, 2013 • Managers today gave the “go” to proceed toward a Feb. 11 launch of NASA’s Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) spacecraft atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. During today’s Flight Readiness Review, managers decided to follow up with a few open issues leading up to the Launch Readiness Review on Friday.
Also taking place today is the Launch Countdown Coordination Meeting, which will pave the way for tomorrow’s Countdown Dress Rehearsal.
At this time, the launch is scheduled for 10:02 a.m. PST (1:02 p.m. EST), beginning a 48-minute launch window. The long-range weather forecast calls for mostly clear skies on launch day.
