Watch NASA launch Landsat 8 this afternoon.

Post#1 » Mon Feb 11, 2013 12:46 pm

Landsat 8, the latest of NASA's Earth-imaging satellites, is set to launch this afternoon. NASA and the US Geological Survey are expected to initiate the launch at 1:02pm EST from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base. Once in space, Landsat 8 will collect photographs, thermal data, and infrared images from 438 miles above the surface of the Earth, circling the planet roughly every 99 minutes or 14 times a day. On each pass, the satellite will capture a 185-kilometer-wide section, giving us a full image of the globe once every 16 days.

The launch itself will be streamed on NASA's site, barring last-minute problems that — as with any launch — could delay it.

Is that "earth imaging" or "al Qaeda" imaging..........
