Landsat 9 Launch Week and launch week activities have been moved following the postponement of the Landsat 9 launch.
These activities will be held as part of “Landsat 9 Launch Week,” taking place from Thursday through Sept. 30.
Landsat 9 is scheduled to launch Monday on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V 401 rocket from Space Launch Complex 3 at Vandenberg Space Force Base. The mission, a partnership between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey, will continue the legacy of monitoring Earth’s land and coastal regions that began with the first Landsat in 1972.
