NASA will launch Landsat 9 Watch live
News! NASA will launch Landsat 9 on Monday, September 27, 2021 at 18:11 UTC. This is a high-performance satellite and superb technology and will be used to study the Earth. this is the ninth satellite in the Landsat group. Landsat 9 is launched to replace Landsat 7, which is still in orbit, but it is not known how long it will last. Eleven different spectral bands will be used to study the planet. The satellite will be raised to approx. 705 km, which means approx. 438 miles. The launch was slightly delayed due to COVID-19 conditions.
According to NASA, it can map and see the entire planet every 16 days. Landsat 9, however, will be in space, along with Landsat 8 (launched in 2013), which is also in space, so NASA will be able to map and see the Earth every 8 days through the two satellites. NASA has announced that approx. a lifespan of approx. 5 years for Landsat 9.
We hope it will do a good job there in orbit, especially after NASA gave approx. $ 750 million on it, of which only 90 million approx. were used for its construction by Northrop Grumman. If NASA will not be able to launch the satellite on Monday, then it will do so on Tuesday as a reserve date.
We wish success to NASA and its collaborators to be able to launch the satellite on Monday, without any problems.
