While technology of our satellite systems has greatly improved the quality and range of observations over the past 50 years, it is the legacy of the first global coverage environment satellites launched by NASA in the 1960s that marks the beginning of a unique perspective from space. Mankind first saw Earth from these satellites and there have been significant changes over the last half-century. The recovery of these old data can be something of a treasure hunt since results are not guaranteed, but the data can reveal answers to questions never considered by the original designers. Exploring data not seen in decades is both exciting and challenging. Ultimately, these early satellite data are highly valuable, as they have extended our climate records and provided important context in longer-term climate changes.
