NASA’s Eyes on the Earth

I was just checking my Twitter feed, and I had to check out a tweet from NASA about their interactive page called Eyes on the Earth, which is a cool gateway to information about all of NASA’s Earth Observation missions, like ICEsat, Cloudsat, Landsat 7 and even the new OCO (Orbiting Carbon Observatory) that is scheduled for launch later this month.

Oddly, though, Landsat 5 is not shown on the Eyes on the Earth graphic. I know Landsat 5 was experiencing some age-related issues, but the word I remember from back in February 2008 was that it was back in action. Hmmm, maybe I missed a press release or news item somewhere…
