Happy tenth birthday, Terra

NASA’s Terra satellite, one of the new generation of “landsat” satellites, and the flagship of the Earth Observing System (EOS), just turned ten years old. Happy birthday, Terra! I remember when they launched you. I still sometimes browse the MODIS Rapid Response System website. You can find unlimited gobs, yes gobs of fairly high resolution, near-realtime satellite imagery there. Turns out most of the Earth is cloudy and/or ocean, go figure.
