Terra satellite launch & deploy

Terra is a multi-national, multi-disciplinary mission involving partnerships with the aerospace agencies of Canada and Japan. Managed by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the mission also receives key contributions from the Jet Propulsion Laboratoryand Langley Research Center. Terra is an important part of NASA’s Science Mission, helping us better understand and protect our home planet.

I have created the Terra launch & deploy video sequence prior to the satellite’s launch for internal communication at NASA and for public outreach purposes of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center Public Affairs Office (PAO).
