Vandenberg AFB, California (CNN) - NASA's shuttle program is gone, but satellites are still blasting off into space.
The latest one took off this afternoon from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California...
It's expected to provide NASA and the U-S Geological Survey with pictures of the earth's surface for the next 40 years.
The images collected can be used to assist in urban planning, disaster recovery and help monitor water and energy management.
