This photograph of the southwestern United States, taken in November 1966 during the Gemini XII mission, was among those that inspired the Landsat program. Click on image to enlarge.

Since 1972, Landsat has collected more than 3 million images that describe two generations of human imprints on Earth and the planet’s effects on humanity.
