Glad to see EO surviving the current political turmoil!
Landsat-9 milestone

Orbital ATK has been given approval to begin building the NASA Landsat-9 spacecraft after completing a design review of the mission.

Landsat-9 (see https://landsat.usgs.gov/landsat-9-mission for details) is due for a December 2020 launch. The satellite essentially operates with the same optical instrument as Landsat-8, but the TIRS-2 thermal instrument is an improved version of Landsat 8’s TIRS.

Some changes have been suggested for Landsat-10 in a recent review, however, with the most likely change being increased revisit interval for the orbit.

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

those who drink a cup of coffee a day are 12 percent less likely to die from heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory and kidney disease than people who don’t drink any.
