The year 2018 is shaping up to be another busy one for NASA’s Earth Science satellite missions. Already two launches have taken place, and two more are scheduled by the end of the year, which shows the plan for the NASA Earth Science fleet through 2023, and highlights the recent launches.

On June 29, 2018, NASA’s ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS) instrument successfully launched aboard the SpaceX commercial resupply mission-15 (CRS-15) from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
