February 16, 2012 - USGS extends suspension of operations for Landsat 5

Landsat 5 imaging was suspended in November 2011 when a vital transmission component showed signs of imminent failure. The Flight Operations Team continues to explore options, which include alternate operating procedures for the Thematic Mapper and evaluation of the other sensor onboard, the Multispectral Scanner. More details can be found on this NASA webpage.
