This Aug. 7, 2012, photo provided by NASA shows the next Landsat imaging satellite during testing at Orbital Science Corporation’s facility in Gilbert, Ariz. A  team of nearly 140 international scientists and engineers will gather on Sept. 24-28 at the U.S. Geological Survey’s EROS Data Center near Sioux Falls, S.D., to discuss how the satellite will be used once it’s launched into space in February. The imaging satellite, which will be known as Landsat 8 once it reaches orbit, continues the mission of Landsat 7, which has been transmitting images since 1999, and Landsat 5, launched in 1984 but on its last legs.
