VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The launch of NASA's Landsat Data
Continuity Mission, or LDCM satellite, aboard a United Launch
Alliance Atlas V 401 rocket is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 11.

Liftoff from Space Launch Complex 3 at Vandenberg Air Force Base
(VAFB), Calif., is targeted to occur at the opening of a 48-minute
launch window that extends from 10:02 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. PST (1:02 to
1:50 p.m. EST). The spacecraft's final circular polar orbit will be
438 miles (705 kilometers) at an inclination of 98.2 degrees.

LDCM is a joint NASA and U.S. Geological Survey mission. It is the
eighth satellite in the Landsat series, which began in 1972, and will
add to the longest continuous data record of Earth's surface as
viewed from space. The mission will extend the history of global land
observations that are critical in many areas, such as energy and
water management, forest monitoring, human and environmental health,
urban planning, disaster recovery and agriculture.
