Preview LDCM’s Liftoff!
LDCM is the Landsat Data Continuity Mission, continuing the Landsat program’s 40-year data record of monitoring Earth’s landscapes from space. LDCM will expand and improve on that record with observations that advance a wide range of Earth sciences and contribute to the management of agriculture, water and forest resources. LDCM will launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base aboard an Atlas V-401 rocket on February 11, 2013.
