NASA and USGS Social Event for Landsat Data Continuity Mission Transition to Operations.
On May 30, 2013, the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) will officially start its lifelong mission as Landsat 8. The next Landsat satellite will then begin to systematically acquire images of Earth, extending Landsat’s four-decade record of our planet. We are inviting 30 of our social media followers to join us for a ceremony at the USGS EROS Center in Sioux Falls, SD, that will formally acknowledge the transfer of responsibility of Landsat 8 from NASA to the USGS.
