New satellite appears to be working flawlessly

Jim Nelson, ground systems manager with the U.S. Geological Survey, shows a model of the Landsat 8 satellite, Monday, May 6, 2013, at the USGS EROS Center near Sioux Falls, S.D. The satellite, launched in February, is sending more than 400 data-filled images per day to the center, allowing scientists to document forest fires and hurricanes, map the world's mangrove forests and track ice in the Antarctic.
