This past Monday, September 27, Landsat 9 was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Replacing Landsat 7, the upgraded equipment on Landsat 9 will have the resolution power to see objects 50 feet across from 438 miles up! Working in tandem with Landsat 8, the entire earth will only take eight days to scan. This will give us the capability to track the rapid changing landscape, giving us more insight to the effects of climate change.
Red Canyon is proud to support the ELVIS III and Launch Services Program (LSP) which handled this launch. Click on the links below to learn more about Landsat 9!
