Dr. Wang’s Introduction to Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry class participated in a virtual field trip for NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center on October 5, 2021. The presentation features an overview of the Goddard Centers involvement in earth sciences and NASA missions. This includes details in the designing, building, testing, and launching of satellites. The program ends with an interactive Q and A session.

Dr. Wang was particularly interested in information regarding the newest Landsat satellite, Landsat 9, which successfully launched on September 27, 2021 after several unfortunate delays.

The Goddard Space Flight Center offers a variety of tours to suite different levels. Currently the Center is restricted to Virtual Experiences due to the ongoing pandemic. You can learn more about the programs and scheduling requirements here.
