It takes hundreds of people to design, build, launch, and operate a robust satellite observatory that can withstand the rigors of space and provide reliable, well-calibrated scientific data. Science and engineering leadership and collaboration within the Landsat 9 organization is key to the success of the mission.

“With a launch in mid 2021, Landsat 9 will propel the program into the next half-century of global observations. That’s the hallmark of Landsat: the longer the satellites view the Earth, the more phenomena you can observe and understand.”
