    In the Feb. 7 article "RSG Sees Sensor to Space," the editor erroneously attributed the construction of the optical sensor on the Operational Land Imager on the Landsat Data Continuity Mission to the college's Remote Sensing Group. As said group so kindly pointed out, the credit should go to Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., a valued member of OSC's Industrial Affiliates program and a frequent employer of our alumni.

    The RSG will perform inflight calibration of the sensor once the satellite, which enjoyed a successful launch on Monday, is operational in orbit.
