ICESat-2 Por Los Números (en Español)

ICESat-2 es un láser espacial de gran precisión que integra la tecnología más puntera de la NASA. Para poder medir la altura del hielo del planeta, los ingenieros deben llevar el instrumento ATLAS de ICESat-2 al extremo: a veces yendo a lo grande, otras a lo pequeño, pero siempre manteniéndolo preciso.

ICESat-2 is an incredibly precise space laser that features the latest in NASA technology. To measure ice heights, engineers have to take ICESat-2’s instrument ATLAS to the extreme – sometimes going big, sometimes going small, but always keeping it precise.
