Feb. 8, 2013 • The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) Launch Readiness Review (LRR) gave a tentative “go” for launch Friday, pending completion of two open items of work. These are expected to be complete by tomorrow morning, and the LRR will reconvene Saturday to give a final “go” based on favorable results.
Liftoff of the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket and the LDCM spacecraft is targeted for Monday at 1:02 p.m. EST at the beginning of a 48-minute launch window. The LRR, one of the standard meetings held prior to each NASA launch, was conducted at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) in California. Forecasters predict a 100 percent chance of acceptable weather for the launch of LDCM from Space Launch Complex 3 at VAFB. Launch operations are managed by NASA’s Launch Services Program (LSP) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
