During a Year in Orbit, IceCube Created a New Map of Earth's Clouds
Although it was only designed to last three months, the tiny CubeSat known as IceCube has been orbiting Earth for a full year, collecting data on a hard-to-study type of cloud.
In that time, IceCube has created a global map of these ice clouds around the planet, which could someday help improve models and forecasts.
