LANDSAT Information

A pretty good place to start is to learn what NASA means. In case you've just joined us or forgot - NASA stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

NASA was created by the government of the United States to oversee its space program. NASA scientists developed and put the LANDSAT satellite you're about to learn about into orbit in order to study the earth's surface. You will be seeing Landsat images as you continue to study "Third from the Sun."

You may want to visit the NASA home page. There is tons of information about NASA.
