NASA launched an earth observation satellite.
19:30
On February 11, 2013 at 18:02 UTC the Atlas-5 rocket-carrier was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, USA. The launch was performed by United Launch Alliance supported by the 30th Space Wing of US Air Force. The rocket orbited the LDCM (Landsat Data Continuity Mission) satellite.
The spacecraft is the eighth satellite in the history of the Landsat program, a joint NASA/United States Geological Survey (USGS) project that has been monitoring forest loss, glacial retreat, urban sprawl and other phenomena continuously since Landsat 1 lifted off in July 1972.
