Landsat 9 will be launching September 27th at 11:11am PST (2:11pm EST). Host a pre-launch party this week and discover more about the Landsat 9 satellite and the nearly five decades of Earth Observation.
The Landsat 9 satellite—a partnership between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey— will continue the Landsat program’s critical role in monitoring, understanding and managing the land resources needed to sustain human life. Today’s increased rates of global land cover and land use change have profound consequences for weather and climate change, ecosystem function and services, carbon cycling and sequestration, resource management, the national and global economy, human health, and society. Landsat is the only U.S. satellite system designed and operated to repeatedly observe the global land surface at a moderate scale that shows both natural and human-induced change.
