Jan. 15, 2013 • At Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, work continues on pace toward next month’s planned launch of NASA’s Landsat Data Continuity Mission, or LDCM. The spacecraft is fueled and closeouts of the observatory are under way. Encapsulation of LDCM into the payload fairing currently is set for Jan. 23. Approximately two days later, the payload will be transported to Space Launch Complex 3, where it will be mated with the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket. Launch remains slated for Feb. 11 at 10:04 a.m. PST.
