Return to all Landsat Headlines 

Since July 23, 1972, Landsat satellites have collected images of Earth from space, adding to the longest continuous space-based record of our planet’s surface. This September, Landsat 9 is scheduled to launch to continue this legacy past the half-century mark.

In honor of the upcoming launch, NASA invites you to tap into your creative side, and proudly display what Landsat means to you! Create art or make a craft that’s inspired by a favorite Landsat image or the satellite itself and share it with us on social media. Visit this NASA webpage for all of the important details.

Landsat is a joint mission of NASA and the USGS.
