This new four-part video series shares the history of Landsat, how Landsat 9 works, how Landsat data gets from the satellite to the ground, and how Landsat data can be used with other data to support a wide range of research and applications. Enjoy!
We have Virginia Norwood to thank for the design and engineering that made the Landsat program a success and set the path for modern Earth observation.
Landsat 9’s two science instruments are now attached to the spacecraft.
New time-lapse videos of Earth’s glaciers and ice sheets as seen from space are providing scientists with new insights into how the planet’s frozen regions are changing.
OLI-2 is now built, tested, and in place to be assembled onto the spacecraft.
This month, TIRS-2 successfully passed the stringent 12-week testing process at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and was shipped to Northrop Grumman’s facility in Arizona.
The prolonged presence of green space is intrinsic for a healthy society a new nationwide Danish study finds.
In the long and winding history of the Landsat Program, April 15, 1999 was an important day.
Evolving technology, free data and robust calibration have helped make Landsat the cornerstone of global land imaging.
The study used machine-learning to analyze more than 700,000 Landsat images to map changing global distribution of intertidal areas over a 30-year period.
