Landsat free data downloads

In a recent USGS press release I found:

“Although the USGS does not have detailed records since the mission’s inception in 1972, there is good evidence that more data have been distributed in the last 6 months than in the entire first 36 years of the Landsat missions combined.”

Amazing, no? Don’t have to say more when blinking at EU data sources…
