Landsat 5 back imaging again
Back in September 2007 the USGS reported problems with Landsat 5's onboard batteries which had caused it to stop imaging. Landsat 5 has proved really rather remarkable, proving very reliable since it started imaging in March 1984 (and completing its 125,000 orbit last year). It still provides Thematic Mapper imagery (at 30m resolution) and, almost single-handedly, has been NASA's "Mission to Planet Earth." Anyway, the USGS happily reports that the fault has been found and imaging is now back online. Testing is continuing to see how the satellite performs.
