Landsat 40th Liveshot Roll-in Video

On Friday, July 20th, in advance of Landsat's 40th birthday and a live NASA press conference on Monday the 23rd, NASA scientists are available to discuss amazing & unprecedented images from space of your region. Cities grow, wildfires rage, rivers flood out of their beds and droughts shrink lakes and reservoirs — all captured by Landsat, the world's longest continuous record of Earth from space.

Since 1972, Landsat satellites have been orbiting Earth, telling the story of soil moisture, urban spread, land use, assist disasters & recovery. Next year, the 8th Landsat satellite (LDCM) will be launched from California. The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) will track food production and water resources, organize disaster recovery and monitor the impact of climate change.

The following is broadcast quality video roll-ins in Apple ProRes 422, 1280x720, 59.94 fps.
