Landsat 8 budgeted for $338 million

Next-generation LANDSAT is in the works... this from an article in the ArgusLeader... "The next satellite might eventually be dubbed Landsat 8 and is budgeted for $338 million this fiscal year. The memo from OSTP also said the government's goal is to make Landsat a permanent program rather than a series of independent missions."  The announcement of a new satellite was made quietly just before Christmas.
