NASA to Hold Jan. 10 Media Briefing on Next Landsat Mission Launch

Mon, 7 Jan 2013 11:25:29 EST

WASHINGTON -- NASA will hold a news briefing at 1 p.m. EST on Thursday, Jan. 10, about the upcoming launch of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM). The briefing will be held in the James E. Webb Auditorium at NASA Headquarters, 300 E St. SW, Washington. The news conference will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website.

LDCM is a collaboration between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey that will continue the Landsat Program's 40-year data record of monitoring Earth's landscapes from space. LDCM will expand and improve on that record with observations that advance a wide range of Earth sciences and contribute to the management of agriculture, water and forest resources. The spacecraft is scheduled to launch Feb. 11.

The panelists for the briefing are:

-- David Jarrett, LDCM program executive, NASA Headquarters, Washington
-- Jim Irons, LDCM project scientist, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
-- Ken Schwer, LDCM project manager, Goddard Space Flight Center
-- Matthew Larsen, associate director for climate and land use change, U.S. Geological Survey, Reston, Va.

Journalists unable to attend in-person may ask questions from participating NASA locations and join by phone or via Twitter using the hashtag #askNASA. To participate by phone, reporters must contact J.D. Harrington at 202-358-5241 or j.d.harrington@nasa.gov with their media affiliation by 10 a.m. Jan. 10.
