ESA Obtains First Data From CryoSat-2

On 8 April 2010 the European Space Agency (ESA) launched its CryoSat-2 spacecraft. This spacecraft is “dedicated to studying variations in our planet’s ice cover.” Today ESA announced that it has received the first scientific data from CryoSat-2 in polar orbit around Earth. ESA hopes that “by accurately measuring thickness change in both types of ice, CryoSat-2 will provide information critical to scientists’ understanding of the role ice plays in the Earth system.” Learn more about the latest data from CryoSat-2 online now here.
