Landsat 5 has resumed operations

Tim Warner here at WVU just forwarded us the good news that Landsat 5 has resumed acquisition operations for the continental US and international data acquisition will be coming back online in the next few weeks. Engineers were able to make adjustments to Landsat 5’s solar array to give it enough power to continue its mission. This is definitely good news for the remote sensing community.

The press release is available at the Landsat Mission website
