Animation Explaining New Satellite That Maps in 3D


A cute new video published on NASAs website entitled “Photon Jump” looks at first to be a science based CG movie for children, but after watching, it’s clear that it was intended to educate about the new ICESat-2 satellite. It is currently being engineered and tested at NASA Goddard.

This is the first satellite to use this method.
